Aluminum Shapes Adds CNC Machine, Job Training

March 3, 2016 – In reaction to an expansion in Aluminum Shapes’ client base, the Delair-based company has added a second CNC machine to its facility, along with expanded job training opportunities to its existing employees to leverage it when filling new and existing orders.

Our aluminum is being used everywhere from the new Comcast building to the decks of U-Haul trucks,” said Brigette Douglass, Aluminum Shapes Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “As aluminum is incorporated into more applications generally, we’re seeing increases in the demand for value-add processes that enable our customers to reduce the need for additional finishing after we deliver the product.”

The new CNC machine, which will approximately double Aluminum Shapes’ capacity fulfill orders requiring precise detailing, came online on March 1, 2016.
