Where Does Your Ingot Come From for Your Aluminum Billet?
“Our supply chain does not include material from un-approved counties. Most customers find this knowledge helpful, along with the fact that Taber has 50-years-worth of experience. Not just aluminum extrusions, but aluminum technology and innovation. Our Gulfport cast house was modernized a few years back, and we make it our business to lead the way when it comes to giving our customers and partners the best America has to offer.”– Jason Weber, VP of Sales & Marketing, Taber Extrusions
History of Taber Extrusions and Their Gulfport, Mississippi Aluminum Cast House
Established in 1973, Taber has since become one of the leading aluminum extrusions companies in the U.S. by combining cutting-edge technology, innovation, and unmatched customer service within various industries around the globe. We are pioneers in the extrusion of large, heavy, and wide complex shapes that set us apart in the aluminum extrusion industry.
Expansion started in 1995 when Taber acquired the Gulfport, Mississippi facility, giving easy access to its ports and industrial scraps. In time, Taber also added two additional presses and a cast house which increased our capabilities to cast, extrude, and fabricate products in-house.
By 2017, Taber continued to expand, adding 7” billet molds to their existing 9”, 11”, 16”, and 20” diameter molds. The state-of-the-art upgrade in Gulfport, MS increased billet capacity by over 30% and allows Taber to manufacture American aluminum billets for defense, marine, and other specialized industries.
