Tri Star Metals remains open and fully operational during this pandemic. We are doing everything in our power to educate and protect our team members while continuing to support our valued customers. Our highly engineered specialty metal products are the backbone of America’s essential markets including but not limited to medical, aerospace, food and water services, and hygiene. We recently received our first order from a customer for small diameter specialty bar that will be used to build ventilators. Their starting material will be produced at our Freeport, IL manufacturing facility making our operations more critical than ever.
We conducted a survey of our customer base to identify how many of our customers are remaining open as they are essential to our nation’s infrastructure. Of the 169 respondents, 156 (92%) of them remain operational while just 13 (8%) are in temporary closure.
Tri Star Metals is committed to keep our Team Members, Customers, and Suppliers informed with the most up to date information relating to COVID-19. Click on the bold links below to open related documents. Please visit our website regularly for current details!
