Competitive Advantage

Innovation

Our unique manufacturing integration and marketing philosophy has led us from virtual obscurity to being a dominant supplier to its niche markets. For example, the patio and pool enclosure industry historically was serviced by stocking distributors who purchased material from traditional aluminum extruders. Although the market was not clamoring for another supplier, by reducing the historical supply chain and establishing ourselves as a legitimate mill direct distributor, we filled a supply void in a mature market. Specialty contractors that erect enclosures have benefited from our low-cost position, ability to control the quality of the products we sell, capacity to maintain inventory levels in our warehouses by not depending on outside sources of supply, and the utilization of strategically located regional distribution centers to best service their daily requirements.

Regarding the Milestone® business, no other window and door manufacturer located in Florida has a comparable level of advanced manufacturing, design engineering, and professional engineering integration. Most of them only assemble these products. Our competitive advantage is a direct result of (1) the capability to produce and assure the quality of our own precision tolerance extrusions (2) our commitment to cutting edge, cost effective fabrication, assembly, finishing, and packaging technology (3) innovative product engineering with designs that set the standard for performance, ease of installation and operation, and appearance (4) an exclusive durable powder coated finish and (5) marketing through a network of authorized installing Milestone® dealers that offer the best value.

    COMPANY CULTURE BY JOEL G. LEHMAN,

    FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT

    The primary strength of Florida Extruders lies in its high level of extremely experienced managers who have without exception spent their entire careers in the technical, production, and sales areas of the products that we manufacture. This high level of technical talent has enabled the company to become very integrated from melting metal in its own foundry to performing all fabrication activities for the products it sells.

    Further, this skill manifests itself in other areas as well. We perform all maintenance on our vast truck fleet and we make much of our tooling and process machines in our own tool and die shop. We also build some of our own electrical control panels and we fabricate all sorts of equipment components, material handling devices, and support equipment for our own use.

    We recognize those employees who contribute to our overall success by the establishment of high wage rates, discretionary bonuses, and a 401(k) plan, along with other fringe benefits. Since it is difficult to hire new experienced people in our specialized industry, we place significant emphasis upon employee training.

    We work in a “family” type environment and pay special attention to our employees’ personal problems and offer them all kinds of assistance when appropriate. Everything possible is done by us to motivate and keep good employees. We could not have built our company in Central Florida with its historical low unemployment rate by doing otherwise.

    Our never-ending commitment to our customers is to be a low cost supplier and the best in the business. Accordingly, we value our employees, trade partners, and customers and recognize their contribution in making FEI a leader in the markets in which we sell.
