-Steel Fabricators & Stainless Steel Fabricators of America -
Manufacturers of the Portable Podium
Short Run Deliveries
We are all about metal products! We manufacture steel & stainless steel products, aluminum and copper products. We fabricate sheet metal, tanks, coils, and tubing. For stainless steel, we certainly beat our competitors. We've been quoting large and small manufacturing jobs for 25 years, and we win stainless steel jobs left and right.
Our manufacturing processes are well suited to stainless steel, and our engineers have very extensive experience in stainless steel fabrication. We have performed jobs for NASA, the University of Notre Dame plasma research division, Westinghouse Air Brake, GE Router Stokes, and dozens of other top name companies serving private and public projects. When it comes to it, we have great people with mounds of expertise. That's the Berrien Metal Products, Inc. difference.
As a fabricating facility with five sectors of service, Berrien Metal Products, Inc. specializes in both short and long run jobs involving the prototyping and manufacturing of:
Metal Stampings, and
These services share many processes, including shearing, CNC stamping, forming, welding, painting, ecoat, or epoxy upon request. Berrien Metal Products, Inc. is now a member of the Copper Tube Coils Group.
Full metal fabrication service capabilities are available for your use, including 4000 Watt CNC laser cutting, 5 punch presses ranging in size from 45 to 250 tons, a 33 ton CNC Wiedematic punching machine, a 10' Cincinnati Shear, several welding stations, four press brakes up to 75 tons, and so on, equipping us to produce a broad range of metal products.
With over 46,000 square feet, your blueprint can be taken into full-fledged production into the tens of thousands of parts per month, in an efficient, competitive, and timely manner (expedites and prototypes available also). Your parts can be delivered immediately or on a monthly basis as you need them to reduce your stock and warehousing costs. Some companies who have used our services for metal manufacturing have been with us for over ten years.
As a registered federal government contractor (cage code available upon request), doing business regularly as such, you can trust BMP to deliver your custom metal fabrications professionally and confidentially. Your sheet metal fabrication prototypes can be delivered for almost any industry utilizing metal 1/4" thick or less. Your humble engineers at BMP are prepared to deliver your next generation of weapons designs and retrofits.
If your prototype involves small tanks or coils, your design can be accommodated up to 4' diameter by 8' long. Tube bending fabrications can be up to two meters square, while stampings generally average at less than 6" square (larger stampings arbitrarily fall under the "sheet metal fabrication" category).

Long Run Deliveries
Warehousing costs are by far the leading unnecessary burden for manufacturing companies and the broader American industrial complex as a whole.1 BMP builds your parts per order and stocks them for free, so you can request shipments when you need them.
To easily maximize your manufacturing savings, your best choice is to utilize a service that ships bulk loads of manufactured parts on a monthly basis. This relationship vastly decreases warehousing and production costs which are otherwise associated with lump orders. Staying competitive today includes having vendors that do not cut corners.
When you call our facility, you'll be speaking to us personally. Take advantage of the design and prototyping experience from our engineers. We do not outsource our customer service, and you can oftentimes be on the phone with the plant manager in two or three minutes. Contact us for an estimate today.
Our experience in developing and pioneering specialized metal fabrications for our customers has made us solidly proficient at prototyping and design.
