About GLOBAL METAL SOLUTIONS
It started with an idea…
Global Metal Solutions, backed by over 40 years experience in polishing much of the world’s finest-quality sheet for the aerospace industry and precision grinding of all alloys, is positioned to become a strategic partner in support of your supply chain goals.
Global Metal Solutions has developed a unique combination of resources for skin finishing and precision grinding, so much so, that we designate our production methods to be capable and reliable and are prepared at all times to demonstrate its superiority.
Our time proven competitive advantages include: Equipment Capacity, Tested Capability and a Knowledgeable Workforce to meet Industry Demands.
Equipment Capacity & Capability:
Our dedicated machinery for polishing, coupled with our very high-level capabilities for meticulous and knowledgeable hand finishing (as required), the result is absolute uniformity, sheet by sheet … surfaces entirely free of blemishes, scratches, blisters and other unsightly defects. Our grinding machines can grind down to .008″ with a tolerance of + / – .001″.
Skilled and Knowledgeable Workforce:
Global Metal Solutions beginnings are rooted in the requirements of the aircraft industry. Our earliest work, involved preparation of skins for the then-new generation aircraft. And, over the years, our precision grinding capability has expanded to where we now can grind any alloy to meet the requirements for any industry.
Company Experience and Technical Skills to meet Industry Demands:
Our relations with aerospace organizations has allowed us to fine-tune and perfect two related techniques:
1. Upgrade aluminum sheet to a mirror polish where its quality (blemish free and uniform finish) supersedes what the mills are able to produce.
2. Repair skin sections blemished during fabrication or forming and polish to a uniform, consistent finish to achieve an even match with other skin sections. Where blemishes mar the skin, the area is checked to ascertain that the defect has not penetrated the cladding. This area is then worked carefully to remove the blemish and to attain uniform blending with surrounding area. In no case is more material removed than the depth of the defect.

Message from the President
Global Metal Solutions is a privately held company with a team that knows aerospace and partners with top Aluminum mills worldwide.
We have been deeply involved with metal skin finishing and polishing in the last 50 plus years of company history. We are specialists in sheet polishing. Many of the aircraft in service today contains our work.
Although metal polishing is important for quality for aerospace, I feel the sense of appreciation toward metal finishing has faded because of the rise of automation.
We welcome automated process in our industry but I wonder and question if the current trend in advancement will achieve the experience of the human eye. I believe bringing more complete approach to metal finishing leads to better quality products, that is why I always say “our employees are our biggest asset!”
At Global Metal Solutions we strive to passionately create impressive value in the beginning and end of the supply chain. It is our ultimate mission and sheer pleasure if we turn metal products from dull and lifeless to something that is optically perfect in record time.
I can not stress enough that metal finishing is important to keeping the sense of quality throughout the process of product development. We feel pride and responsibility when we get involved in your project and through hard work, strive to face the challenge in creating value in metal finishing. Our mission is to continue to contribute to higher quality aircraft while providing peace of mind to our customers.
