Advance Quality Planning

We utilize Advance Quality Planning (AQP) for new as well as for repeat orders. Our intent is to identify the best material, the correct processing, and the most efficient delivery to support fabrication and manufacturing needs.

AQP begins with identifying the most suitable raw material to meet all product performance requirements. Need it be extraordinarily strong and rigid? Perhaps the tube needs additional ductility for hydroforming. Will it be arc welded or punched? Will it require bending or flattening?  How important is the material's surface?  Will the tube need a specific shape profile? There are so many possibilities of fabrication and end use application. AQP defines all specification requirements and is the culmination of engineering the product, from raw material to delivered tube. This ensures our customers will receive exactly what they want and what they need.
