Rapid Sheet Metal Launches New Faster and Free Shipping Service

Custom sheet metal parts in 5 day standard lead-time!


September 19, 2017 – Nashua, NH – Rapid Sheet Metal, the largest prototype sheet metal manufacturer in the world, is excited to announce a new turbo 5 day lead time service with free shipping for custom sheet metal parts. Responding to customer demand, Rapid Sheet Metal reconfigured its factory to make possible this guaranteed lead-time reduction. The new service is currently available for parts with a variety of features, materials, and finish options.


David Puleo the general manager of Rapid Sheet Metal stated, “Many years ago, I had a vision of a manufacturing cell that could run sheet metal parts faster than the traditional shops. I had a vision of these cells being compact and flexible enough to be able to put them around the country.  I had a vision of satisfying national customers faster than the industry standard. Today, I can say that one of my work dreams has come true. Today I would like to introduce you to Turbo!”
