CORE FunctionS & PROCESSES

Order & Stock Control

We work with all major steel mills to ensure competitive pricing for your stock needs based on total unit weight. But we also go the extra mile to arrange a tentative order of additional back-up materials so in the rare occasions that a mill experiences a shortage or delay you still have the materials you need.

Processing & Storage

We offer added value and efficiency with inhouse processing services. This allows you to keep your metal supply chain processes moving as quickly as possible, while avoiding additional costs by having to consult, hire, and transport your goods via a third-party processor.

Coil Delivery & Transportation

Our team is intimately familiar with the risks, stressors, and strict government regulations that come with the transportation process for heavy coils. By using container vanning and devanning technology, we maintain the integrity of the product and provide the safest transportation process possible for both the metal itself and the truck driver & team members handling it.

Kanban inventory management system

We use the Kanban inventory management system to eliminate bottlenecks and minimize your costs in delivery. With Kanban, you’ll have a clear picture of the exact amount of materials you need and when you need them, virtually eliminating excess stock and freeing up valuable warehousing space.

 

Lean manufacturing systems use the Kanban as a technique to keep inventory levels as low as possible. In lean manufacturing, the process pulls materials through the production or distribution process. The Kanban system provides a signal for reordering or replenishing stock.

EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT

Michaela E.

Michaela E. brings a unique perspective to her current role of warehouse group leader. She began her career in the front office assisting new team members during the onboarding process. As she outlined and provided information to others about the warehousing activities, she found herself interested.

 

 

“The machinery and technology in the warehouse always seemed super interesting to me. When I started here, I had no idea how automated and advanced the steel logistics process was.” Michaela said, “Then when I found out about the shift flexibility and other financial benefits, I decided to give it a try myself.”

 

 

She also found the move gave her a great opportunity to take advantage of a key Toyota Tsusho America benefit: TUITION REIMBURSEMENT.  “The fact that my company not only supports my continuing education but helps me PAY for it is amazing.”
