Bayou Metal Supply – Stainless Aluminum & Steel Purchasing Made Easy
Our Company. Our Mission. Our Values. Our History. Our Team.
Bayou Metal Supply, LLC opened its doors in 2004 as a local distributor of aluminum plate and extrusions with a commitment to provide the best service, the most diverse inventory, and the most competitive pricing to customers in Louisiana and throughout the Gulf Coast.
Since our modest inception, the company’s strong faith in God and visionary leadership, with direct input from our customer base, has pursued an aggressive course of product line expansion into stainless steel and many other specialty metals. Our strong financial profile and management philosophy led to national recognition as a Master Distributor by Metal Center Service News.
We continue to expand the value-added services we offer to our customers. In 2018, with two (2) state-of-the-art CNC Routers already on-site to support processing of up to 8′ x 40′ aluminum sheet and plate, we added our third, a 10’ x 40’ table to expand our capabilities to process 10′ wide material. Already In 2019, we have added a press and are currently in the process of adding a new WaterJet to further expand the processing services that we can provide to our customers.
Over a decade after our inception, we continue to celebrate, affirm, and encourage these core values, both in our business practices and our local communities.
