Taber Extrusions of Russellville, Arkansas purchased the Exact Manufacturing division of Lou-Rich, Inc. which will now expand Taber’s capabilities to include ultra-precision aluminum extrusions.
Aluminum ultra-precision extrusions are produced through a proprietary technique that delivers features, tolerances, and surface finishes previously believed to be impossible. This unique extrusion process continues to impress design engineers, offering an additional design alternative for the production of precision aluminum components. Industries most commonly using micro-extrusions include computer, electronics, aerospace, medical, industrial, and military.
“On behalf of Exact Manufacturing, I want to sincerely thank you for your business and patronage over the years, and wish you success in the future,” says Exact Manufacturing President Mike Larson, in a letter recently sent out to Exact Manufacturing’s current client base, asking them to direct all new purchase orders to Taber Extrusions, “The Exact Manufacturing division of Lou-Rich will continue fulfilling orders for Taber until a successful transfer of equipment and processes is assured.”
Taber is a highly regarded, full service provider of aluminum extrusions to many industries including aerospace, transportation, defense, power, etc. They are also ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certified. As a leader in the extrusion business, Taber is highly suited to provide the quality and service demanded by Exact’s customers. With this acquisition, both Taber’s and Exact’s customers can expect to see increased supply opportunities with the expanded set of extrusion solutions, programs and services provided by Taber.
About Taber Extrusions
Founded in 1973, Taber Extrusions originally pioneered a process for extruding rectangular billet which enables the company to extrude solid profiles up to 31 inches wide or hollows up to 29 inches. Taber expanded with the purchase of an extrusion facility in Gulfport, MS., in 1995 which houses a cast house and two additional presses, and the fabrication area has been expanded multiple times. Taber continues to extrude billet in a wide range of alloys and sizes, and has diversified its markets beyond military since its inception to include aerospace, automotive, marine, infrastructure, and sporting goods, among many others. For these markets, the company supplies cast and extruded products in a variety of soft and hard alloys. Today, Taber Extrusions is proud to announce the launch expanded capabilities to include aluminum ultra-precision extrusions.
