LOOKING FOR PRECISION, CONSISTENCY, AND VALUE? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE

"No matter how much that we grow, we will never end our commitment to providing each and every client the top quality service and lightning fast turnaround that they have come to expect. "

When you’re an OEM or service center ordering tube and bar products, you won’t stay in business long if you accept anything less than perfection on every order. And while you’re at it, you’ll have a hard time growing your business if you cut into your already thin profit margins by paying too much for parts.

At Central Tube and Bar, we’ve been providing precision bending, shearing, and laser cutting services for over 20 years and counting, and we’re ready to add you to our long list of satisfied customers! We operate three facilities and service clients in an 8-state area, and owe our success to repeat and referral business. Here are just a few of the benefits of partnering with CTB:

Industry-Leading Turnaround Times

Many OEMs operate out of small facilities that don’t have the room to store large amounts of parts or raw materials, and rely on “Just-in-time” delivery to have the parts that they need to begin their production run. We will work with you to ship the parts that you need when you need them, and not a minute sooner or later.

Each of our service centers are fully equipped with state-of-the-art CNC machinery that are capable of more automation than ever. This means that we can perform operations that used to require multiple machines, and can automate many processes. We’re highly familiar with JIT delivery requirements, and are always committed to shipping on your schedule.

Our high volume OEMs also appreciate that we can duplicate repeat orders with first-run precision easily and quickly by programming in previous job specifications. Through value engineering and rapid prototyping, we can assist with evaluation and streamlining of your product designs for greater efficiency and integrity.

Other services include CNC bending, sawing/shearing, part finishing, and product engineering.

Our equipment is state-of-the-art, and capable of multi-bend operations that used to require multiple machines, and human operation. The more that we can automate, the faster that we can deliver. And don’t worry: every part that you order will be exactly the same, guaranteed.

Value Design Services

For each new production run, we consult with the client and look for ways to improve designs, complete the order more quickly, and lower costs. Even if it’s only a few seconds or a few pennies, they add up over time.

Before we start a production run, we take a good look at the parts with our clients, and make any suggestions that we can that will expedite the order, and save them money.

Our service centers are equipped with an optimum mix of precision machines that gives us the flexibility to do miter cutting, bundle cutting and trim cutting on round, square, and rectangular tubes and bars. We can also automate the process, which helps us fill large orders more quickly, and at a lower cost.

When you have been in business as long as we have, you start to get a good feel for exactly how long each process will take. You also learn ways to complete routine processes more quickly, and at a lower cost.

Zero-Defect Precision

When we say that quality precision is job one, we put our money where our mouth is. Every CNC bender, cutter, and laser on our floor is state-of-the-art, and well-maintained. 

Our multi bend tube bender machines are equipped with advanced features like weld seam and etch mark detection that facilitates perfect part orientation, and helps us expedite setup and production of intricate, multi-bend geometries.

Some manufacturers agree to certain scrap rates on larger orders, but the only scrap rate that we will accept is zero. Whether you pull out the 10th part or the 10,000th part, they will be exactly the same. 

Service after the Sale

We are committed to 100% customer satisfaction, and every member of our team has the authority to do whatever it takes to make sure that you’re satisfied with every order. 

Most of our clients don’t require our services just once, and we approach each new client as a new partnership. We stand behind every order, and every member of our team has the power to do whatever it takes to turn you into a repeat customer.

At Central Tube and Bar, we take pride in our CNC laser tube cutting, our sawing and shearing services, and our multi-axis tube bending, and we have been partnering with OEMS and service centers since 2005 to provide the precision tube and bar products that they need. 

You can always count on your order being built to your exact specifications and delivered on your schedule. If you have any questions, or are ready to get an estimate, contact us online, or at (501) 450-7750.
