Our Work

Our new, 120,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility in Mentor, Ohio

Built from 3 generations of metal finishing experience and 4 years of careful planning, our state-of-the-art facility was meticulously designed for metal finishing excellence. We have taken metal finishing to a level that few of our competitors have even dreamed of. When we say automated, we mean it. Every part we process is recipe based and computer/PLC controlled, to ensure that our customers can rely on American Metal to always receive a consistent, high-quality finish. There is no other metal finisher in the country with our capabilities, capacity, or turnaround time. We are able to process in excess of 1,250,000 pounds of product PER DAY, with additional capacity expansions and new finishes planned for our 2nd phase.
