CRL-U.S. Aluminum Launches KD Storefront Fabrication Program across North American Service Centers

Expanded manufacturing and logistics capabilities allow the company to provide customers with localized fabrication services to streamline aluminum storefront projects.

LOS ANGELES, CA - May 26, 2015 - CRL-U.S. Aluminum, the leading single-source manufacturer of architectural glazing systems, has continued to stand firm with its strong commitment to meeting the needs of the glazing contractor by introducing its new KD Fabricated Storefronts Program. Designed to simplify the process of ordering and installing aluminum storefront systems, these added services will provide glaziers and installers with enhanced customer and technical support that will allow them to complete storefront projects faster and easier. This newly introduced program efficiently delivers localized fabrication to glazing contractors once they send their project details to CRL-U.S. Aluminum, who will then fabricate their fully-framed storefront without the need for additional modifications. When ready, installers can conveniently retrieve their fabricated system from a local CRL-U.S. Aluminum Service Center for a turnkey, KD solution*. CRL further enhances this service by providing all glass sizes and bundling materials by elevation for easy job site handling.

CRL-U.S. Aluminum's Fabricated Storefronts Program ultimately provides quality assurance with precise fabrication through state-of-the-art CNC processes that can minimize cost and liability that arise from common fabrication errors. Additionally, the company's robust manufacturing capacities accommodate fast turnarounds and rapid customization of complete systems for virtually any project scope.

"By offering complete fabrication services for our storefront systems, our manufacturing strengths essentially become our customer's strengths," says Gerald Hendrick, President of U.S. Aluminum. "We are adding services that increase accuracy and reduce labor, allowing glaziers to complete diverse projects with more confidence, in less time. There's no denying the added value."

For even faster fabrication turnaround, the newly enhanced U.S. Aluminum Storefronts OnlineŽ Estimating Software allows glazing contractors to generate complete fabrication drawings that are immediately sent to CRL-U.S. Aluminum for fast processing.
