This growth will be due to high demand across many different industries from Airports and Shipping facilities to the Mining fields. With the need to cut down on material handling cost and the need to get from one place to another quickly, Overland Mine conveyors will be one of the biggest players in this anticipated growth.

These conveyors can quickly move bulk materials from the mine itself to the mining facility swiftly, safely, and efficiently by going over terrain that may not be suitable for roads. Due to these conveyors allowing materials to move from the mine to the facility taking the path of least resistance, a significant amount of time is reduced during the production process. Saving these mining companies time and money by reducing transportation costs and errors.

The United States alone is expected to be a significant player in this growth with mining facilities from the East Coast to the West Coast as mining efforts continue to track toward 2008 numbers.

This is where we come in, as a full-service Stamping facility. Vulcan Metal Stampings, located in south Alabama, is manufacturing conveyor parts for some of the biggest names in the belt conveyor mining industry. As we expand our catalog and work toward expanding our reach, in this growing industry by committing ourselves to exceptional customer service and outstanding craftsmanship, we would love to bring your company along for the ride!

Continuous Cast 5052 Aluminum – Used For More Than Stop Signs

Vulcan Aluminum Mill began its partnership with Mickey Truck Bodies in 2003. MTB is an industry leader for all-aluminum beverage truck bodies and trailers, emergency vehicles, and dry freight van bodies. In the beginning, we supplied Mickey with a steady stream of 5052 H32 aluminum coil which they processed in house.

Over time, new equipment was obtained by Mickey in an attempt to increase efficiency.  In doing so, they now had a decision on their hands between purchasing aluminum coil or aluminum sheetVulcan Aluminum Mill was able to step up and provide aluminum sheeting as a value-added service. Making this switch cut down their processing time and minimized their scrap. Since then, Vulcan Aluminum Mill has provided Mickey with millions of pounds of aluminum sheet.

Our relationship continues to grow year after year and we are excited for future opportunities.
