CRL-U.S. Aluminum Named Top Metal Company
for 6th Consecutive Year

Report by Glass Magazine Recognizes Top Architectural Metal
Manufacturers Based on Sales Volume

LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 9, 2017 – For the 6th straight year, Glass Magazine has named CRL-U.S. Aluminum (C.R. Laurence Co., Inc.) the Top Metal Company. The report recognizes the leading architectural metal fabricators in the United States and Canada based on sales volume. The list comprises businesses that manufacture and distribute curtain walls, storefronts, entrances, commercial windows, railings, and other architectural metal systems.

CRL-U.S. Aluminum attributes this recognition to increased supply chain capacities and improved customer service. The company continues to strengthen its distribution capabilities with coast-to-coast facility expansions. This allows it to provide localized customer service, comprehensive stock inventories, and shorter lead times in order to help customers meet demanding schedules. CRL-U.S. Aluminum also developed online design and estimating software that allows glaziers to bid more jobs in less time by automating the quoting process.

CRL-U.S. Aluminum is currently boosting its operations and supply chain capabilities at its corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, CA. The company is breaking ground on multiple facilities that will expand production and inventory capacities. A trained business development team has also been established to offer customers project support. This all comes on the heels of a large expansion of its Union City facility in the Bay Area, which will allow the company to stock complete U.S. Aluminum product lines.

“This year’s report is encouraging because it speaks to the growth of American manufacturing,” said Lloyd Talbert, President of CRL-U.S. Aluminum. “We’re very proud of our top position in the rankings. It reflects our ability to add value to our customers’ projects by providing the solutions they need to grow their businesses. Quality and speed are key factors, but our customization capabilities and unwavering customer service are our real differentiators.”
