Metal Supermarkets Prospers in Greater Boston Market

New Greater Boston area metal service center Celebrates 1st Anniversary

WOBURN, Mass. - April 22, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Metal Supermarkets®, the world's largest supplier of small quantity metals, on March 31st celebrated the first anniversary of its Boston North location in Woburn, MA.

"We've enjoyed bringing the metal micro distributor experience to the Boston area market. Our unique combination of great customer service, high quality materials, custom cut and processing services, no minimum order, and onsite delivery has resulted in success for over 1,200 customers during our first year," notes local entrepreneur Gary Ainsworth, who opened the Woburn location in March 2014. "We look forward to many more customer successes in the years to come."

The organization's first year has made a tremendous impact on the New England market. The team has been featured in several local publications, and made a big splash at several local trade shows. Further, presence on social media has added to the buzz, particularly the customer-specific success stories on their Facebook page.

In its first year, Metal Supermarkets Boston served a wide range of industries including construction, laboratory, health care, transportation, manufacturing, R&D, and more. They have also assisted many customers in the public sector, including local municipalities and highway departments.

The team is poised for tremendous growth in the upcoming year. After gaining a foothold in the market, they are now stocking more material, shapes and grades than ever before, resulting in reduced lead times in more varied materials. Their on-site metal processing services are made possible by equipment in the Woburn showroom, including large and small production saws with miter capabilities, a 10 foot metal shear, an Iron Worker with hole punching and notching, and an 8 foot blade brake.

A recent customer enthuses, "Very friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to be able to actually see the stock and select the most appropriate material. Having it cut to length was unexpected but most appreciated. All in all, a very pleasant experience. I'll be back."

"We take away the barriers to obtaining small quantities of metal, and being just three minutes from the intersection I-95 and I-93 on 6th Road in Woburn, MA, the store is easily accessible from all parts of the Greater Boston area ensuring that you will be able to get to our location quickly, find the just the material you need, and be back to your project in no time at all," says owner/operator Ainsworth.

Metal Supermarkets – Boston North will be exhibiting at the following Trade Shows in the coming months:

Eastec, May 12th, 13th, and 14th, 2015, Eastern States Exposition, 1305 Memorial Ave., West Springfield, MA, Booth 5869
