When searching for a reliable aluminum extrusion partner, not only must their manufacturing capabilities be considered, but also their aluminum distribution services. Look to Taber Extrusions for their turnkey services that encompass all the above.

Whether it is broad profiles or ultraprecision extrusions, Taber’s capabilities range from industry standard extrusions to intricate custom designs that meet very specific needs. The company’s standard shape catalog includes:  rods, hollows, channels, beams, angles, tees, zees, and bars in a wide range of sizes.

A Strong Network in Aluminum Distribution Services

Plus, the aluminum distribution market is exceedingly significant for Taber. In their Gulfport location, it accounts for approximately half of Taber’s business. Taber’s commercial network, aligned with key aluminum distributors, allows them to reach customers – both domestic and international. Distribution allows Taber to reach customers that might be too small to take a mill minimum order. It also allows Taber to reach industries that are perhaps not used to buying direct from a mill,  making Taber top choice in aluminum distribution services.

About Taber Extrusions

In a quest to continuously improve the quality and service we provide to our customers, Taber Extrusions continues to evolve by adding products, services, and cutting-edge technology.

Founded in 1973, Taber Extrusions originally pioneered a process for extruding rectangular billet which enables the company to extrude extra-large aluminum extrusion 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 state-of-the-art cast house and two additional presses, micro-extrusion capabilities, and the fabrication area has been expanded multiple times.

What’s more, Taber continues to extrude billet in a wide range of alloys and sizes and has diversified its markets beyond military. Since its inception, Taber has worked to include aerospace, automotive, marine, infrastructure, and sporting goods, among many others.

Additionally, in-house casting solutions, ultra-precision extrusion manufacturing, friction stir welding capacities, and a full range of hard and soft aluminum alloys are part of Taber’s portfolio. Taber continues to align itself as an industry leader in having the broadest available capabilities.

Today, Taber Extrusions is proud of its relatively recent addition, the VF-12 CNC machining line. Along with a full offering of extruded aluminum components, value-added machining services, and raw material supply to the North American market, Taber keeps expanding services. Adding these capabilities to a growing portfolio propels Taber into the future. In a quest to continuously improve quality and service, we aim to be your aluminum extrusion partner.
