Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) April 15, 2010
Qualified vendor http://www.qualifiedvendor.com, an online marketplace for engineering quotes, released a new resource for the custom aluminum extrusion industry today - http://www.extruded-aluminum.com.
The Extruded Aluminum Resource Center was created to centralize aluminum extrusion industry news and catalog design tips and best practices for engineers.
The resource center consists of a knowledge base blog, resource-link center, past job archive and quote center for engineers and purchasing agents looking to find both stock and custom aluminum extrusions.
Although little known to the layman, aluminum extrusion is a three billion dollar industry domestically consisting of roughly 120 suppliers that service thousands of manufacturing companies. Most people encounter aluminum extrusions on a daily basis whether they are staring out of their aluminum-extruded-office-windows or shoving the extruded push handle on the door out of most buildings.
Qualified Vendor matches request-for-quotes of make-to-order goods from engineers and purchasing agents with industrial suppliers via crowd sourcing.
