Brown Metals Company: Custom Quality You Can Depend On!

Keeping our environment safe is now a concern that many businesses and industries face on a global scale. The old days of large industrial businesses dumping nasty contaminants into the earth needs to stop and here at Brown Metals Company we are doing everything within our power to ensure our products are produced in an environmentally friendly way. Here are a few excellent examples.

Conflict Minerals
Industrial materials are often made from valuable minerals that come from specific geographic locations all over the world. Many of these locations are in third world countries where local governments force citizens to work in hazardous and dangerous conditions. Some of these citizens are forced to work at gun point and amid death threats.

Our products come direct from manufacturers who have stated all of their products are free from conflict minerals. Our official statement on this matter can be found at the following location:

Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
The European Union has developed legislative framework to help manage the risks associated with chemicals that may pose threat to human health and the environment. Our vendors have indicated to us that our products do not contain any significant amounts of chemical compounds. Our official statement on this matter can be found here:
http://www.brownmetals.com/kb/documents/REACH_BMC.pdf

Recyclable Materials
Recycling has taken the world by storm and it has helped all of us re-use certain materials time and time again. The old method of stuffing these materials into a large landfill are long gone. Many of the materials we bring to our customers are indeed recyclable. Our stainless steel products are 100% recyclable!

These are the few ways we are doing everything within our power to ensure our products are environmentally friendly!

With over one million pounds of inventory on hand at any given time, our customers obviously have a lot to choose from. Being able to offer our customers smaller quantities of materials is a service we take pride in. We realize each and every customer will have their own unique needs ranging from unique materials to unique quantities and that is exactly why we offer cut-to-length shearing.

What Is Shearing?
Shearing is a process that is used to cut our material into flat sheets. The shearing process can be used on a wide variety of materials we currently stock including:

  • Stainless Steel           
  •  Beryllium Copper

Shearing Cut-to-length Specifications
Our shearing cut-to-length services offer a wide variety of lengths, widths and thicknesses to our clients. Thicknesses range from .001 - .035 inches or .025 - .889 millimeters. Widths range from 1 – 37 inches or 25.4 – 940 millimeters. There is no minimum or maximum length that we can cut!

Material Is Protected During Transit
All custom cut-to-length shearing is protected during shipment by boxes that are also custom constructed to offer the optimal protection during shipment and transit. We also offer free delivery services for orders over 50 pounds in the southern California area.

At Brown Metals Company we are here to help our customers any way we can. Our custom shearing cut-to-length services are just one way we strive to give every single customer exactly what they want and need.

People on our planet have faced conflict for a very long time and these conflicts come in a wide variety. Conflicts exist between countries, regions and people. A large percentage of the human population is totally unaware of the majority of conflicts that are happening at this very moment. The perfect example would be conflict minerals.

What Are Conflict Minerals?
In the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining areas, valuable minerals which include: gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten are being mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuse. The typical human rights violations that are an everyday part of these mining conditions are:

  • Hired to work in a mine at gunpoint. 
  • Consistent threats against life and the life of immediate family members.  
  • Physically forced at gunpoint to work past the point of exhaustion.
  • Working conditions are remote, difficult and often lead to multiple deaths.

The total amount of human casualties that are a direct result of this conflict are over the 5 million mark.

Putting A Stop to Conflict Materials
In the year 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Consumer Protection Act into law. This act specifically addresses the problems associated with conflict minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other areas of the world. This single act has helped to reduce revenue to militia groups by over 60%.

Over 12,000 companies are directly affected by this act including Brown Metals Company.

What Brown Metals Company Is Doing?
Brown Metals Company does not manufacture any products that we sell, but we do work with manufacturers who are directly impacted by the Dodd-Frank Consumer Protection Act. As an effort to help our customers understand that our products , we have voluntarily obtained and posted statements from the manufacturers we currently deal with at the following url:http://www.brownmetals.com/compliance.

The statements located at the above mentioned web address clearly show that none of the products we distribute are using conflict minerals.
