The aluminum on pontoons is one of the most important components. Manufacturers have relied on Champagne Metals to provide them with the best aluminum for years. Now, the company is opening in Indiana to serve their customers better, which in turn will help keep boats affoardable for all of us.
Champagne Metals, an aluminum service center and processor headquartered in Glenpool, Okla. is pleased to announce the completion of a new processing and distribution center in Middlebury, Ind. The 85,000 square foot facility is located on 17 acres in the Greenfield Industrial Park, adjacent to highway I-80/I-90. Specializing in aluminum sheet and coil, Champagne Metals provides an unparalleled level of aluminum expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to the area. Current processing capabilities include precision leveling and cut-to-length for coils up to .250" thick x 80" wide and a multi-blanking line for slitting coils up to .125" thick by 72" wide. Future plans call for coil-to-coil slitting capability along with a replication of the .375" x 100" cut-to-length line currently housed at the company's Glenpool facility.
Mike Champagne, President and CEO of Champagne Metals, said, "We have been able to createsome wonderful partnerships and relationships with customers in Indiana while servicing them from our facility in Glenpool. We wanted to take the next step to further show our commitment to the markets we serve by creating a facility in the area to service the pleasure boat, recreational vehicle, and truck trailer markets. We also see this as a strategic location to better serve our customers in the commercial transportation markets as well as our processing customers. The new facility is a tremendous complement to our processing capabilities in Oklahoma."
