Aluminum is the material of choice for a wide range of products in many different industries. You’ll find aluminum in everything from automobiles and trucks to computers and consumer goods, where it offers an ideal combination of lightweight, exceptional durability, low cost, and environmental friendliness.

At Pennex, our goal is to be your one-stop shop for aluminum extrusion profiles and fabricated, finished aluminum components, all manufactured from our own internally supplied cast aluminum billet. As a member of the Metal Exchange — one of the largest suppliers, processors, and traders of non-ferrous metals in the world — we combine the resources of a large company with the customer-first focus of a small business. From our Wellsville, PA headquarters, we provide dedicated service and deep expertise to all our customers.

Our Divisions

Our three core divisions provide the following services:

Aluminum billet: Aluminum cast billet services are provided at our Wellsville and Greenville facilities. There, we are able to produce 7”, 8”, 9”, 10″, 12″, and 14” diameter billet in 1xxx, 2xxx, and 6xxx series aluminum alloys. Our state-of-the-art facility is IATF 16949:2016 certified, ensuring measurable quality control standards are in place at all steps of the remelt and casting process. Reliability, flexibility, and short lead times are hallmarks of the Cast Products Division.

  • Short lead times
  • Truckload quantities allow mixed billet sizes and mixed alloys
  • Tolling arrangements
  • Scrap purchasing
  • 6061 is our specialty

Aluminum extrusion: Aluminum extrusion products are produced in our Wellsville and Leetonia facilities. Our wide-ranging capabilities allow us to meet a variety of customer demands from large sizes and tight tolerances to custom alloys and enhanced mechanical properties. We also offer an extensive catalog of standard extrusion shapes that is complemented by our in-house design and engineering capabilities, through which we can customize or modify a product to better suit your requirements.

  • 7”, 8”, 9”, and 12” press sizes. Capability to extrude out to 16” wide.
  • Standard and custom alloys available
  • Capable of producing tight tolerance and multi-void hollows
  • ISO/TS 16949:2002 Certified

Aluminum fabrication: Our full-service fabrication capabilities make us the clear value leader among aluminum extrusion manufacturers. We can quickly turn around aluminum fabrication projects with an exceptionally high degree of quality. Services we offer include CNC machining, precision cutting, miter cutting, punching, notching, bending, welding, deburring, component assembly, painting, and finishing.

  • Punching out to 24’
  • CNC machining of parts to 10’ length
  • Job shop quantities and production parts volumes
  • High volume robotic and CNC machining work cells

Advantages of Aluminum

Manufacturers around the world have trusted the powers of aluminum in an array of applications — from household items like phones, foil, and vehicles to housing the International Space Station and wiring the U.S. power grid. Aluminum is an indispensable metal for many industries due to its distinct advantages, which include:

  • Strength: Aluminum can be made into a thin, lightweight, and bendable material, but it can also be transformed into one of the strongest, toughest materials known today. The versatility of aluminum’s strength is incredible, and it can even be made stronger with heat treatments and alloys.
  • Adaptability: As an amazingly versatile metal, aluminum can be adapted to numerous applications by introducing alloys such as silicon, zinc, magnesium, copper, and others. At Pennex, our in-house experts will create an alloy specific to your application’s requirements.
  • Weight: Aluminum weighs far less than most other metals, making it the metal of choice for construction, automotive, and aerospace industries. The lightweight metal is easy to handle, form, and ship, which also makes it far more cost-effective than other materials.
  • Sustainability: The use of aluminum lowers carbon emissions and energy costs in various applications and can even contain three times the recycled content of plastic and glass, making it an excellent choice for industries looking to switch to more sustainable business practices.

Who We Serve

We are currently providing extruded aluminum products and aluminum fabricated components for customers in the following industries:

  • Transportation: Truck body, truck trailer, and other transportation-related manufacturers frequently turn to extruded aluminum components for vehicle bodies, frames, ramps, lift gates, knurled flooring, and other components.
  • Automotive: Aluminum is used extensively in the automotive industry, where it plays a key role in fulfilling manufacturers’ ongoing requirements for strong and lightweight components.
  • Building & Construction: Aluminum alloys can be found in concrete forms, door and window frames, fences, decks, rails, and other residential and commercial construction products. With its ability to withstand the elements and corrosion resistance, aluminum is a smart choice for both indoor and outdoor use.
  • Consumer goods: Aluminum’s high predictability and light weight make it a good choice for appliances, sporting goods, computers, and other consumer products.

Other markets we serve include the electric power industry, solar and wind power, distribution, and more. To discuss an upcoming project and to find out how we can help, contact the Pennex head office by phone or email today.
