Extending Value Beyond Steel Processing

Many JDM Steel customers seek to operate 'leaner' by simplifying their supply chain and reducing non-value added steps in their business process. We help by offering valuable, cost-competitive fabrication services through our on-site fabrication partner, LB Steel.


There are clear advantages to having "first stage" fabrication performed on the steel we process for you, while that steel is still on our campus:


  • Eliminates cost of having your material shipped to another job shop,
  • Reduces cycle time by eliminating an extra outsourcing step,
  • The simplicity of having your steel and fabrication on one consolidated invoice.

Tapping the expertise of the LB Steel experts can generate additional savings by having their engineers review your design for manufacturability, looking for ways to save material or simplify processes. Or if a new design would require you to invest in a machine or tooling to make it in house, chances are LB Steel already has the machine and tooling needed so you can get into production faster by working with them..
