Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals, announced today that it has signed a franchise agreement to bring a fast and convenient metal supply option to businesses and consumers south of Lake Pontchartrain.
The upcoming location will be the first to open in Louisiana. Metal Supermarkets New Orleans will offer over 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, cut to each customer’s exact specifications. Along with its convenience, speed and commitment to customer service, Metal Supermarkets will be the one-stop-shop for manufacturers, machinists, maintenance and repair, tool and die shops, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, homeowners, artists, hobbyists and more in the New Orleans area.
“I, like many others in the area, have consistently struggled with obtaining cut to size, quality metals quickly. I know this store will benefit the many businesses, contractors and artists in the community. Metal consumers should have access to quality materials without compromising quality or quantity requirements. We will provide the proper solution for each customer,” said David Machado, incoming owner of the store. “The opportunity to begin this journey with Metal Supermarkets came at the right time for me. I believe in high standards, continuous improvement of processes and the value of a supportive team. Metal Supermarkets checks each one of those boxes.”
David Machado joins the Metal Supermarkets network, bringing aviation industry experience serving as both an offshore helicopter pilot in command and heliport manager. He considers his background in aviation a strong fit with his new career path because of the precision and dedication needed in both roles in order to ensure consistent outcomes. Machado identified the need for Metal Supermarkets in the region and is eager to provide metal solutions to other businesses in his community.
The deal with David comes amid a pivotal growth phase for Metal Supermarkets. With locations open across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, Metal Supermarkets is executing a strategic expansion plan to add 50 new locations during the next four years in targeted markets, including Austin, Boston, Detroit, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Sacramento and San Antonio.
