About Us

Our Story

Almetals, Inc. is an award-winning metal slitter and distributor, founded by Jim Chain in 1984.  The company was a business opportunity that presented itself at the right time and place.  Using his previous business experience, along with cash, secured bank funding, his children's education fund, and smart partners and Board members, Almetals, Inc. took root and has soared ever since.

Our first location started in Novi, Michigan.  Within two years, we outgrew our Novi facility and built a state of the art facility down the street in Wixom, Michigan.  This facility was larger and had new machinery, such as the Ruesch slitter to add to the Stamco slitter that was moved from Novi.  In 1999, Almetals, Inc. continued to expand and opened an additional location in Austell, Georgia, located just outside of the metropolitan Atlanta area.  This allowed us to better service our southern-based clientele.

Collectively, we have over 450 years of metal processing experience.  We pride ourselves on striving to do our very best for our customers by providing the very best quality product, along with excellent customer service.  We subscribe to the philosophy of growth through people, in order to do and be better individuals.

  We purchase from quality mills both domestic and foreign and work with the very best suppliers.  We also provide re-rolled aluminum to precision tolerances and are able to anneal aluminum to meet your O temper requirements. 

We are a proud manufacturer and aluminum supplier.  We work with industries such as (but not limited to) stamping, hinge, roll-forming, HVAC, solar, and automotive.  Our coil products include: aluminum, brass & copper, cold rolled, fin stock and coated & stainless steels.  Our multiple slitting lines, combined with our cut-to-length capabilities, enable us to be your one stop processor.  Call or e-mail us today for a no-obligation quote or if we can answer any questions you may have.
