What Have We Done for You Lately?

As 2016 comes to a close, we take a look back on some of the improvements we have made as a company to help better service the steel industry and our customer base.

Equipment and tooling upgrades to increase capacities and product offerings.
We added two new rotary draw benders, a 6″ Coast Wallace with a carriage assist and overhead clamp.and a Pines #6 with a customized back boost, to our current inventory of equipment. We plan to fully tool these pieces of equipment allowing us to offer countless new radii options for our customers growing needs and demanding lead times.

Shop floor redesign to maximize workflow efficiency and utilization of space.
Before our new machines arrived, we completely restructured our shop allowing us to group similar machines in common areas. The result is improved material flow, increased production, and more efficient production.

Welcomed Stu Hasman as an additional Regional Director of Sales.
We are confident Stuart’s commitment to quality, customer service and his integrity will make him a valuable resource as our company and your business continue to grow.

Energy Efficient Lighting in Shop & Office. Solar Panel project coming in 2017.
As Albina Co., Inc. continues to try to reduce our carbon footprint and be environmentally conscience, we completely retrofitted our entire production shop and office facility with energy efficient lighting this year. We are examining the potential to add solar panels on the South side of our building roof to reduce power consumption in early 2017.
