Great Lakes Forge Offers Short Lead Times, Large Inventory for Stainless Steel Forgings
7 June 2011—Great Lakes Forge, a Michigan-based custom open-die forging company, offers high quality stainless steel forgings. Their skilled staff, world-class facility, and many years' experience help them complete forging projects in the shortest lead times in the industry. The company can produce stainless steel forgings from 2.5 to 24 inches in thickness/diameter, and up to 12 feet in length.
Great Lakes Forge has a large supply of stainless steel inventory in stock, to meet the specifications of many forging projects. The company works with 300 and 400 series, 17-4 stainless steel, 15-5 stainless steel, 13-8 stainless steel, and a wide range of other grades. Great Lakes Forge’s in-stock inventory improves project lead times by eliminating the need to wait for incoming materials.
Additionally, Great Lakes Forge offers blanket ordering for stainless steel blocks, flats, and rectangle forgings. By ordering a higher volume of stainless steel materials for use in future requirements, customers can lock in prices to protect against fluctuation of stainless steel prices. This practice gives customers a better overall value for their money, allowing them to pay current market price for raw materials that will be used for later forging projects in a specified time frame.
Since 1946, Great Lakes Forge has been one of America's finest and fastest smaller volume forges. For further information about Great Lakes Forge and their stainless steel forging capabilities, please visit http://www.glforge.com.
