Some Advantages of Metal Fabrication Through Midlake

Every hinge attaches to something, either a door or a hatch or hood or cover or panel. Knowing what the hinge is attaching to gives us an advantage. This insight allows us to provide alternatives or suggestions that solve a problem beyond the hinge. Our customers are often taken back because they thought they were just going to procure a hinge and instead found a solution to another problem as well. Also, having a relationship with our customers and knowing the members of their team significantly increases our ability to exceed the customers expectations.

Midlake Helps You Through Production Volume Bottlenecks

Our target customers for metal fabrication are existing customers. These are customers with whom we have regular communications and a track record of a mutually beneficial business relationship. They often face the challenge of temporary constraints or seasonal bottlenecks. Because of the volume fluctuation, it’s hard for them to level load their schedule. Finding a vendor that is willing and able to be switched on and off on a moment’s notice based on demand is cost prohibitive and very difficult. But with our existing customers, we have already established ourselves as an approved vendor and through constant contact, outsourcing metal components to Midlake becomes a seamless transaction. We often share tooling, knowledge, programming, raw materials, vendors, quality equipment and pricing.

Commitment to Quality

Midlake has been serving customers with metal fabrication solutions for over thirty years. This common sense approach is a win-win for everybody. And it brings customers high quality, reliability, and on-time shipping from proven, established metal fabrication professionals. Our quality policy is to provide products to our customers which meet or exceed their expectations through our commitment to continuous improvement in quality and productivity in all areas of the company.

Midlake is the Right Size

It seems like many metal fabricators are too large or too small. Midlake is the right size to handle a wide range of quantities and capabilities. Our 30+ years of experience in metal fabrication allows us to quickly size up what you need – and our size enables us to get to work right away.

Midlake is your Partner – Not Your Competitor

Over 50% of our customers are metal fabricators servicing a multitude of industries. Our strength is at the component or sub-component level, not at the fully integrated or contract manufacturer level. We are not a competitor but rather an extension of your own facility.
