It should come as no surprise that I think being a Mead Metals customer is a great idea – I’m their Director of Sales. My role allows me a front row view of the effort we put into meeting the needs of our customers. If I had to pick the top five reasons why becoming a Mead Metals customer is a great idea, here’s what I would choose.
1. Commitment to Quality
Delivering material at the level of quality customers need is such a vital part of our operations, that sometimes it goes without saying. Over the decades, we’ve developed strong relationships with the mills we source our material from, and they’re well aware of the quality standards we have in place. And that focus on quality is something we continue to provide our customers.
2. Expert-Level coil processing
There’s no doubt about it, we would not be able to meet the needs of our customers if it weren’t for our operators. The majority of our production staff has more than 20 years of experience with Mead, and they have elevated metal processing into a craft. They are able to work with difficult metals, achieve precise tolerances, and deliver on surface condition requirements like no other.
3. Top Notch Customer Service
Our commitment to customer service is something that helps set us apart from other metal service centers. Whether we’re working with new or returning customers, and whether we’re providing large or small quantities, we’re committed to providing customers with the "Mead Experience."
4. Minimum Order Policy
Sometimes, you only need a couple pounds of beryllium copper. And in those times, it’s nice to get what you need without being charged some outrageous lot charge. Providing small quantities of metal to customers is something we take pride in doing without compromising our commitment to quality. So, if you need a pound or two of beryllium copper, we’re happy to provide it – without an exorbitant upcharge.
5. Reliable Lead Times
Providing our customers with on-time delivery is one of our core business standards. We want you to know that the lead time you’re quoted is going to be met with 99.98% accuracy (seriously, we keep track). In an industry where tight timelines are the norm, having a delivery date you can rely on eases pressure for our customers.
