Aluminium Tube Supply & Stock Management For An Aircraft Seating Manufacturer
From multi metals

Multi Metals worked with a leading manufacturer of aircraft seating to manage its supply of aluminium and material costs.

Its client had specified that aluminium tube in alloys 7075 and 2024, produced to tight tolerance and a highly-critical surface finish, were used for the seating.

Our team was able to source materials of the right quality and ensure delivery schedules were met, as part of a comprehensive service that involved:

  • Full stockholding and stock management
  • Cutting and dressing materials
  • JIT delivery
  • Sourcing a number of special one-off demand items
  • Organising air freight goods in for special requirements

The major benefit to the aircraft seating manufacturer of using the Multi Metals service was price.

Utilising a bespoke stockholding model, complete with a devised forecast document to enable forward planning, gave them access to offshore pricing without the restrictions of the standard lead times associated with buying aluminium direct from mills.
