Pennex Fabricated Products:
               Your Partner in Success
With the recent strong increase in demand for solar power, a start-up alternative energy
company needed to reduce the cost of their solar panels without sacrificing performance:
they chose Pennex. A boat trailer manufacturer turned to Pennex to provide their
components and sub-assemblies so they can focus on their core business. A leading
manufacturer of pop-up trailers needed our help improving the appearance and
performance of their folding ramp, while reducing cost. Pennex supplies a major fleet and
rental truck manufacturer with critical components Just-In-Time – via implementation of a
Kanban pull system.

Why do all these companies keep coming back to Pennex? They know that Pennex
Fabricated Products goes the extra mile to help them successfully face today’s critical
business challenges. Since 1983 we have consistently provided the highest quality
aluminum products for customers in a variety of industries.

What Outsourcing Can Do for You
Leading OEMs have turned to Pennex Fabricated Products to take the fabrication of
components and sub-assemblies “off their plate,” so they can focus on their core

Outsourcing to Pennex Fabricated Products brings your business key benefits. Our custom
stocking program will likely reduce your inventory costs, while freeing up valuable shop
floor and warehouse space. You will enjoy more flexibility in your manufacturing schedules
so you can better respond to your own customers’ ever more demanding delivery
requirements. With these time, space and cost savings, you can re-allocate resources to
work on new product development and other key areas of your business.

Helping You Tackle Your Fabrication and Assembly Challenges
When you choose Pennex Fabricated Products, you will benefit from our vertically-
integrated company organization. We have control over the purchase of scrap metal via our
parent company Metal Exchange Corporation, one of the largest suppliers, processors, and
purchasers of non ferrous metals in the world. Based in St. Louis, MO, MEC currently
operates globally in 19 countries.

Our nearby sister division Pennex Aluminum remelts MEC scrap aluminum to cast billet,
and then uses the billet to produce extrusions. Pennex Fabricated Products then adds
value to this extruded aluminum by creating finished fabricated products for our customers.
This close relationship between our company’s divisions gives us unmatched control over
raw material quality, availability, and delivery turnaround times. As part of this substantial
organization, Pennex is able to maintain stringent quality control, and to offer customers
expert engineering support and world-class customer service.

Pennex Fabricated Products runs a lean, nimble operation, staffed by the most customer-
focused team in the industry.
                       Working to Shape Your Future
