Metal Distributor in Monroe, North Carolina
PPC Specialty Metals, Inc., was founded by Frank E. Poindexter, Sr. in June of 1987. Frank began his career in the metals industry in 1967 as a surface grinder operator with a Greensboro, North Carolina, tool steel firm. During this time, Frank successfully achieved certification in Elements of Metallurgy from the Metals Engineering Institute.
Frank was promoted to every aspect of the tool steel business and was very successful in sales engineering before rising into management. Having worked directly with tool engineers, machinists, heat treatment providers, and metallurgists for more than 20 years, Frank was well groomed for the founding of his own company.
Since that time, many achievements have been accomplished. The firm moved into their newly expanded facility in June of 1995. More modern sawing equipment was added, along with larger inventories in tool steel plate and bar. With the addition of several new grades and products, we are now serving consumer markets, as well as automotive, textile, aerospace, and energy markets.
The firm remains a privately-held family corporation. Frank Poindexter, Jr., known as Eddie, has been with the firm since its beginning. He now holds the position of President, as well as working in sales on a day-to-day basis. Frank's wife, Pam, supervises all accounting functions for the firm.
