Choosing a perforated sheet metal supplier
Planning a project that involves perforated metal this year? Don’t get supplier regret – here are our top tips to help you choose the right perforated sheet metal supplier for project success:
Make a list of key capabilities and criteria
Outline what you’re looking for from your perforated metal supplier – do you need a short lead time? Custom perforation capability? Flexibility for any late design changes?
Listing what you need will help ensure you choose a supplier that can fulfil all your requirements throughout the project, especially if any aspect of the product may need revising as the project progresses, which can and does happen. Consider things like:
- Lead times for the style of perforated metal you need
- Perforation capabilities if your design is complex
- Delivery process and timescales
- Named contact – is there always someone you can speak to?
- Quality control measures
- Experience in creating products like yours
- Responsible manufacturing process – essential for environmental projects
Don’t just choose a perforated sheet metal supplier based on price
The cheapest supplier isn’t necessarily the best value. There are lots of other factors that you need to consider when ordering perforated metal as well as the price.
Product quality, exceptional service, seamless ordering processes, customer relationship, supplier stability and reliability matter just as much. Remember that the supplier you choose reflects on your business, so it’s important to make a considered decision.
