Curved steel is not just used to create architecturally aesthetically pleasing buildings, it is also used in smaller manufacturing applications that require consistent, accurate and repeatable bends to create parts. Albina bends steel parts for aircrafts, boat trailers, boats,agricultural farming equipment and automotive applications. We have recently done several steel bends for light rail and electric bus and car applications. Our bends are used on Locomotive frames, boat frames, deck rails and even components for homeland security helping to protect our docks and ports.
Manufacturing projects, including those that specify bent steel applications, should be “made in the USA.” Sending projects, small or large, overseas is not always the most cost effective way to get the job done. Albina Co., Inc. has proven that we can provide competitively priced, higher quality runs than international alternatives. Keeping manufacturing projects in the USA allows for better lead-times, better inventory control, and better cash flow options for customers. Albina Co., Inc. has worked with both well-established manufacturing firms requiring high production runs, as well as smaller start-ups looking for protypes to provide more cost-effective solutions than overseas alternatives. Some examples of products we have helped produce on American soil include frames and components for the electric automotive market, various parts for alternative energy technologies, aluminum and stainless lifts for the marine industry, tradeshow displays and components and parts for power tools.
