SAF to Open Aluminum Finishing, Extrusions, Sheet & Fabrication Western US Plant

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 31, 2007 -- SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing Co.) announces the opening of Western plant operations scheduled on March 15th, 2007 at 4350 Caterpillar Road, Redding, California 96003. The 20,000 sq ft SAF West Plant facility will distribute and fabricate aluminum sheet and extrusions for the commercial construction market, including glazing contractors, subcontractors, architects, design/build contractors, owners, and manufacturers. The new SAF plant, in addition to expanding the company's national distribution and production services, will augment the company's SAF Western Division sales office in San Diego, California, and can be contacted by calling 619-944-0409.

Products available from the SAF West branch will include next-day-out extrusions and prefinished sheet. Fabrication services include shear, press brake and welding.

According to SAF project manager Jim McClatchey, "We see tremendous construction growth potential throughout the West. From this Northern California location on I-5, a major transportation artery, we'll be able to offer overnight delivery of anodized and mill finish aluminum to most of the west coast. This is particularly important to more completely support the nation-wide SAF eCommerce network on www.saf.com, where aluminum extrusion and sheet transactions may be processed and tracked around the clock, 365 days per year."

SAF is the only aluminum service center in the country with anodizing and painting facilities, a full-time fabrication center, and an unparalleled stock of sheet and extrusions, architectural column covers and panel systems from a single source. This enables SAF to provide quick, one-stop expertise, service and accountability. SAF boasts next business day order fulfillment for mill finish, anodized and cut-to-length extrusions.
