    Default Aluminum extrusion supplier?

    I am looking for a supplier with a decent selection, pricing and fast delivery on stocked items.

    Who to call for mid Atlantic?

    Thanks

    Pierce Aluminum and Eastern Metal Supply are two of my go to suppliers, and they both have locations that serve your area.

    Decent pricing from Pierce Aluminum? How do you manage that?

    What kind of profiles are you looking for?

    Misumi stocks a bunch of standard profiles for doing frames and motion control type stuff.

    If you're looking for boat specific shapes like toerails and tracks, it's gonna come from someone who specializes in marine.

    As it turns out Eastern is meeting my needs.
    They have a deep sort of coastal/marine aspect to their catalogue.
    Dock building extrusions, boat flybridge stuff etc
    They don’t have any of the really specific boat stuff- toerail, genny/main track etc.
    I’d like to know who catalogs this stuff.
    Harkin and the like have their system components and it may be these profiles are just run on order for these outfits.

    By the time you are in a boat gear catalogue prices are pretty high.

    I do go through phases with them. There was about a year they were always high, and never won a quote, and then there have been times they've won every order over a 6 month period. Eastern is playing high guy right now. I've had a small credit on my account with them since the summer that I haven't been able to use because they are coming in 20-30% high over Pierce and Phoenix.
