Alro's NEW Hautau Tube Cutoff System
​Alro Steel has expanded their processing capabilities to include a new Hautau RC60 Tube Cutoff System at their Potterville, Michigan location. The benefits include ID/OD chamfers of both ends, high production speeds and precision tolerances. The Hautau RC60 can cut carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, copper and alloy tubing up to 6.7” diameter.

Alro Steel is a distributor of metals, industrial supplies, and plastics. Founded in 1948 by brothers, Al and Robert Glick, Alro Steel began in a small garage in Jackson, Michigan. The company name was derived from the first two letters from Al & Robert. Al began the company during a steel shortage in the 1940's which was due to the military demands of World War II. Al found a niche matching up companies with steel needs to companies with excess steel. 

Today, Alro has grown to over 60 locations in 12 states. Alro distributes metals, industrial supplies and plastics, offering cut-to-size metals and plastics with next day delivery to over 25,000 customers in North America. Alro sells a broad inventory of products under the following companies: Alro Steel, Alro Metals, Alro Metals Outlet, Alro Industrial Supply, and Alro Plastics. To learn more, visit alro.com.
