PRE-PAINT IS THE MOST COMPLEX PRODUCT WE SOURCE. IT ALSO HAPPENS TO BE WHERE WE EXCEL.
At FGM, we know pre-paint. If we were the bragging type, we might be so bold as to say chances are we know more about your pre-paint products than you do. We certainly know more than others in the business. Our team members have run paint line facilities. They’ve worked with every major paint producer. And when others have failed to react, they’ve looked past the obvious to identify root problems – and solve them.
THE PROOF IS IN OUR NUMBERS
- growth in pre-paint volume in the last year including cold rolled, hot rolled, galv and aluminum substrates
- years of pre-paint experience on our team
- different substrates we’ve specified over the last year
DISCIPLINE LEADS TO CERTAINTY
It isn’t one thing when working with pre-paint products. It is all the things. That’s why we crafted a very disciplined approach, from how we vet our supply chain to our detailed specification process. Like others, we trial before taking an order but we stress-test every step from port to processor to packaging. We require sign-offs along the way, making sure everyone from the mill, to the processor to the customer confirms the end-product is able to be achieved.
That discipline means we create certainty for our customers by maintaining control:
- Control of the substrate
- Control of the processor
- Control of the supply chain
- And even control over the price, if hedged
