Taber Extrusions: A Look Back, a Look Beyond

2017-09-19T16:10:44+00:00 September 19th, 2017|

Since 1973, Taber Extrusions LLC has pioneered the extrusion of large, heavy and wide complex shapes to differentiate itself from the typical aluminum extrusion company. Since its inception, the Taber Extrusions brand has been synonymous with innovation, service and quality. All of our extrusions have, and will continue to be engineered, manufactured and tested in the United States. Taber Extrusions maintains its headquarters at the Russellville, Arkansas facility, with a Gulfport, Mississippi facility that includes a regional sales office, aluminum cast house and extrusion operations.

Today, Taber Extrusions continues to expand upon its operations and capabilities to retain the cutting-edge service that the company is known for.

Our recent aluminum cast house renovations now allow us to create aluminum billets in 8”, 9”, 11”, 16”, 20”, and slab sizes. We have unmatched access to the full range of aluminum alloys, without having to go through a middle man. Because Taber controls our billet casting, we have greater flexibility in our casting chemistry.

We also continue our production of a wide range of aluminum extrusion sizes and shapes. Our aluminum extrusion capabilities can now utilize both hard and soft aluminum alloys, of the kind found in aerospace, marine and military applications. The company’s profile capabilities range from industry standard extrusions to intricate custom designs that meet specific needs. Our standard shape catalog includes rods, hollows, channels, beams, angles, tees, zees, and bars in a wide range of sizes.

The Aluminum Extrusion Company Powered by Ambition

2017-08-29T17:03:01+00:00 August 10th, 2017|

In 1973, Taber Extrusions pioneered the extrusion of large, heavy and wide complex shapes to differentiate itself in the aluminum extrusion industry. Today, Taber Extrusions continues its tradition of breaking boundaries as an aluminum extrusion company that is a leader in the production of a range of quality aluminum extrusions sizes and shapes. The name “Taber Extrusions” has been synonymous with innovation, service and quality.

… but Taber is much more than a leading aluminum extrusion company. Taber is a company powered by heart, conscience, and deep ambition. Taber understands that employees are customers, too.

Taber exerts just as much effort in attracting, engaging, and retaining their employees as they do for their customers. Promoting a philosophy of “group achievement” has always been a primary focus, and this approach makes for longtime careers.  Meet forklift operator Arthur McCann, employed by Taber’s Gulfport, Mississippi facility for over 40 years.

“I began working at Taber on June 4th, 1976…. and I’ve only missed one day of work.” If you’d like to know what in the world caused Arthur to miss one day of work in 40 years, watch his video:

 

“I’ve received a great welcome.” Says Eric Angermeier, who joined the Taber team as President in early 2017, and spent over 20 years in the aluminum industry establishing senior level leadership roles including sales and operations management at multiple plant sites in the United States. “They are truly responsive to ideas, and willing to help me learn the business here at Taber,” he says. “With Taber being truly unique in the aluminum extrusion industry because of the large press extrusion sizes while offering both hard and soft alloys; we are able to offer what no one else can. That is exciting.” Read a recent article on Eric Angermeier from Taber’s quarterly newsletter, “The Shape of Things.”

When an entire aluminum extrusion company focuses on consistent delivery, exceptional service, dependability, and innovation, mutual rewarding is the result. Michael McDonald is the Co-Plant Manager for Taber’s Russellville, Arkansas location. 13 years ago, Mike applied to Taber as a temp, and was hired on full time within a few months. “The future for Taber isn’t written yet, but I see a very long and prosperous one. Taber has had a very big impact on the industry in its 44 years. We are continuing in our research of new technology and the possibilities of applying that technology or technique to our unique capabilities, so I think as long as we continue with what has made us successful, and continue to improve those areas, the sky is the limit for Taber Extrusions.” Read more about Michael McDonald.

Lisa Passmore, Inside Sales & Supply Chain Specialist at Taber adds, “I am proud to say I work for Taber Extrusions…when I say ‘Taber Team’, that is truly who we are – A group of people with unique strengths and skill sets working together toward a common vision.  My coworkers are the best!”

An aluminum extrusion company that possesses a compelling history often inspire an extraordinary kind of commitment amongst its workers. It is this very dedication that leads to a strong and successful corporate legacy.  Plant Engineering Manager at Taber Gulfport, Allan Sewell sums it all up in this bit of advice: “Be as well rounded as possible, be willing to put in a lot of hours, and look for opportunities to grow your company and your role within it.”
