As one of the largest providers of prepainted hot rolled steel in North America, Metal Prep has been providing coil coating solutions to the construction industry for more than 40 years.
Metal Prep is a full service coil coater who specializes in providing complete packages of painted and slit hot rolled steel. Metal Prep uses state-of-the-art techniques to apply organic (paint) coatings in a continuous process on a full range of hot rolled steel substrates.
Metal Prep specializes in the conversion of manufacturers from their inefficient, in-house painting processes, to the use of highly efficient and environmentally friendly prepainted metal. When this opportunity arises, a dedicated supply chain team is created to identify the customer’s needs and design a coating system that meets their specific requirements. Substantial cost savings can normally be realized through the elimination of operating costs, work-in-process inventories, material handling, warehouse space, environmental compliance and insurance costs associated with an in-house painting operation.
Also, Metal Prep offers access to an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and CoilTracker, an internet-based inventory management information system that allows customers to easily manage their prepainted metal inventory.
