The Shape Alliance Story

The leaders of several metal shape manufacturers shared a common frustration: They were forced to turn away customer requests because their processes were not the best approach to meet the customers' needs. Rather than continuing to disappoint customers, these metal shape manufacturers decided to pool their capabilities and offer a comprehensive range of cost-effective metal shape solutions. The result was the Shape Alliance.

Led by Gus Hinze, director of Amerex, the Shape Alliance was formed as an association of independent metal shape manufacturers with the goal to include companies representing each of the commonly used metal shape production technologies including casting, cold drawing, cold rolling, forging, extrusion and others. The Alliance would become a single point of contact for buyers seeking metal shapes of any type.

Today, Alliance members have the capability to produce over 35,000 different metal shapes with applications in medicine, agriculture, power generation, road and bridge construction, food processing, oil and gas extraction and a host of other industrial applications. As new members affiliate with the Alliance, its capabilities and markets continue to expand.

Our Mission Statement

As an alliance of independent companies, we will provide customers with cost-effective options for purchasing shaped metal products precisely meeting their needs, while expanding business for our members.
