Innovative Sintered Metals is a fully diversified organization serving automotive, medical, electrical, pump, appliance, and lock industries.
We established an immediate strategy to carve out niche markets where we would become specialists in a given product line or process. Our largest niche is the production of stainless steel components for automotive, architectural hardware, locks, and pump industries. Stainless production represents more than 40% of the company's sales.
We provide our customers with superior value. Our overhead is kept low without compromising quality, technical support, or customer service. We do not have to support a large corporate staff. Our managing partners are the owners. When spending capital dollars we only buy when there is a direct benefit to our customers, employees, and shareholders.
Innovative Sintered Metals Inc. was founded in 1997 by Mr. Jay Draper, former president of Ridgway Powdered Metals and the former American Powdered Metals, a subsidiary of Alcoa.
Our organization strives by offering superb value to our customers, stockholders, and employees. The guiding principle throughout our organization is providing the utmost respect for every individual, customer, and supplier. We are an active and responsible participant in the community.
We are strategically located in western Pennsylvania, the Powder Metal capital of the world. The technical skills and work ethics of the area workforce are excellent. Our employees make the difference and are our biggest asset.
Our goal is to provide unsurpassed service to our customers. Our ability to be infinitely flexible and responsive to our customers needs is what separates us from our competitors.
Innovative offers our customers value beyond the single component. In many instances we can save our customers time and money by providing sub-assemblies.
Our design and engineering staff will help you from your initial design concepts through the production life of the program. We work diligently with our customers' engineers to improve current parts with the idea of always becoming more competitive. Our processes, whether production or administrative, must continue to evolve in order to keep jobs and opportunities in the United States.
