Buying direct from Chemetal.
Chemetal has a long history of selling directly to OEMs, furniture companies and manufacturers. This purchasing option exists for customers who meet specific conditions.
First, quantity. Product minimums start around 500 sheets annually. This can include annual POs, blanket orders for monthly orders and other options.
Second, custom designs. Chemetal has several custom designs and cut metal shapes we’ve developed for manufacturers. These non-standard materials usually involve R&D time on our part, and order volume commitments on the part of our customers.
Third, usage. Selling direct doesn’t apply to say, a large, one time, hospitality project. Our distributor network can cover these projects well and will work to ensure the best pricing. Direct selling is reserved for manufacturers who are making Chemetal part of the products they produce regularly, and Chemetal is looking to build multi-year relationships with guaranteed product minimums. In turn, Chemetal can offer regular supply and cost-effective pricing.
Many of our direct customers come to us through the work of our distributor network, and, in the case of large orders where cost efficiency is an issue, we regularly include distributors in a commission structure.
