ADI Metal provides Marine Grade Aluminum to Brazil
Recognized as one of the Top 50 women-owned businesses in Florida, ADI Metal has built a reputation on its assurance of quality and reliability. Primarily serving marine and industrial customers, ADI Metal is a globally recognized ISO 9001 and QSLD certified wholesale metal distributer, specializing in high-quality marine grade aluminum and stainless steel products.
As a family business in operation since 1958, ADI Metal strives to be flexible and works with clients to meet their individual needs. Customers include the United States government, the oil and gas industry, and businesses in over 70 countries across Latin America, Europe, the Pacific, and the Middle East.
The company’s durable Marine Grade Aluminum is popular throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and ADI Metal looks forward to providing this unique product to new customers in countries such as Brazil, where this superior grade of saltwater-resistant aluminum is not readily available.
Ms. Betsy McGee, president of ADI Metal for 26 years, is excited to increase exports to Brazil. “The Marine Grade Aluminum can be used for intervention vessels, fast-ferries, police boats, navy, and coast-guard type boats. Demand for this highly corrosion resistant product has now found its way to LNG transport vessels, as well as being a desired material in port construction and modification in a bid to expand their capabilities. “The market in Brazil is certainly big,” confirmed Ms. McGee.
ADI Metal offers an extensive selection of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals in all shapes, quantities, and sizes. Ms. McGee stated, “Part of our success with our customers is dependent on solving the customer’s problem, finding the right solution and delivering quality product in a timely and cost effective fashion. We listen to our customers and stop at nothing to provide value in every step of the purchase process.”
It is this type of customer service combined with high-quality products that has contributed to ADI Metal’s long-standing success in Florida and worldwide. Concluded Ms. McGee, “We are not just a distributor but also offer a bit more to customers. We are flexible enough to adapt to changing deadlines and committed to providing our customers with real solutions. Located just minutes from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale and between Port Miami and Port of Palm beach, we work with our global customer base and their chosen freight forwarders to pack to specialized requirements and meet their export needs. No order is too big or small.”
