ATLANTA, GA and REDDING, CA–(Marketwire – Jan 3, 2013) – With the start-up of its batch anodizing line, SAF-West achieves functional parity with SAF’s east coast capability. Their Redding, CA, plant operations now include distribution of aluminum extrusions & sheet, and metal fabrication in addition to the newly-added anodizing service. The anodizing plant reaches customers up and down the west coast with next day delivery throughout California. SAF’s next-day-out service on custom anodized sheet and extrusions now results in expedited delivery to the west coast and mountain states.

The new capability will improve SAF’s capacity to efficiently serve its extrusion, fabrication and finishing customers in the western U.S. SAF’s customers represent a wide variety of industries, but most are users of architectural aluminum extrusions, fabricated architectural aluminum parts, aluminum sheet and panel systems.

James directed the opening of the SAF Redding facility in 2007 with 5 local employees and 20,000 sq. ft. Today SAF-West operates with 15 employees in 75,000 sq. ft., and expects to add another 20 – 25 employees in 2013.

Batch anodizing involves racking parts and immersing them in a series of treatment tanks. Featuring the latest environmentally sound processes, the new SAF anodizing plant will produce clear and 2-step anodized finishes in bronzes and black hues in lengths up to 28′. Both acid and caustic etched finishes are available.
