Southern Aluminum Finishing 75th Anniversary

Reliability is in our DNA

SAF fabricates, finishes, and distributes metal products on time and on budget. We partner with customers like you to complete thousands of projects internationally each year. 

Over our many decades of operation as a family-owned business, we have developed systems and expertise you can trust. We’re so confident in our ability to deliver that we offer

  • Delivery guarantees such as Next Day Out and Three Day Out.
  • Warranties with quality guarantees and compliance with a range of standards.

We’re intense about innovation.

From our first days under founder Marvin McClatchey, we experimented with our capabilities and listened to our customers to innovate our offerings. We regularly offer new, unique products for the commercial building industry. And we collaborate with innovators in industries like renewable energy.

We’re also pioneers in Lean Manufacturing, with our scalable system featured in trade magazines and in industry events. Today, we’re one of a handful of companies in the U.S. that has all three metal capabilities: fabrication, finishing, and distribution.

We’re growing so you can, too.

The SAF family has grown to 250 employees around the globe, so we can meet increasing demand from customers like you. We’ve cultivated a respectful culture, a team spirit, and a dedication to employee safety that attracts top talent.

We also add to our equipment and techniques to scale capabilities in smart ways.

As we open more facilities to accomplish our mission, we don’t lose our sense of family. When we launched in Redding, CA, our dedication to the area’s development and community earned us Business of the Year from Redding Chamber of Commerce. When the communities in which we operate thrive, we all benefit.
