For the family-owned business, the entrance to a fourth decade will feature a mix of the old and new as the company continues to change and grow to serve the industry.
Stainless steel pipe and tubing used to only be used in commercial applications; however, as of late, the fabrications have been put to use in the residential setting, as well. Atlantic Stainless continues to improve upon their age old formula for keeping customers happy.
The history of stainless steel pipe dates back to 2000 B.C. It has developed into a most highly sought after pipe in recent times. You will find piping nearly everywhere. You will find it underneath the ground in your plumbing system, and also being used for things such as the transference of gases and liquids in factories and other institutions. There are three basic types of stainless steel piping, and they include seamless, stainless, and carbon. The difference between the three has to do with their basic uses and functions. Seamless is great for combustible liquids, while carbon is better used for liquids that are at high temperatures.
Stainless pipes are great for anything that is corrosive, as stainless resists corrosion, it is rust free, and it can be recycled. There are many benefits to using these types of piping in your residence, such as the fact that they are chemically resistant, combustion resistant, and very durable, since there is not much that can damage stainless steel pipes. It is also extremely easy to install. This type of pipe can be costly; however, the advantages of this pipe will far outweigh any investment.
President Jerry Cohen and Vice President Bill Gouveia—who founded the company together in the early 1980s—remain in their respective positions, providing tremendous stability for the stainless steel supplier. With Jerry's son Jeff Cohen also on board as vice president of sales, Atlantic Stainless is positioned to continue under solid professional management for the next generation to come.
"Our customers appreciate the consistency and dependability we have been able to provide to them over the last three decades," the elder Cohen said recently. "Stability is an important part of our industry," he said, "and with all the changes in ownership that have gone on throughout the stainless business, we continue to steadily maintain our record of service while only increasing our capabilities."
Cohen also thanked Atlantic Stainless customers for the critical role they have played in the company's success, and said the future holds improvements for them, as Atlantic sets about instituting technology improvements and software changes. "Our industry has grown and changed tremendously over the last thirty years or so, and we have grown and changed along with it," he remarked. Cohen also noted that the company has revamped its entire IT system, which will be fully implemented by sometime this summer. Please visit us at http://atlanticstainless.com?pmc=PR3.
