Since 1910, Julius Blum & Co., Inc. has provided ornamental metal components of the highest quality to the architectural trades. Today, operating under third and fourth generation leadership, we continue to be the industry’s most complete source of architectural metal. Despite continuing growth and change to the industry, Julius Blum & Co., Inc. has not lost sight of our founder’s mission: to best serve our customers with prompt service and quality components. Items shown are carried in stock in substantial quantities. Proper packaging is a priority as is domestic sourcing.
In addition to our product descriptions, our Catalog and website contain Engineering Data to aid in the design of structurally sound and code complaint railing systems. The dimensions, weights and technical data published in the Catalog and on our website have been ascertained with care but cannot be guaranteed. Details and availability are subject to change. We welcome your calls and emails.
What We Do
In Stock For Prompt Shipment
Julius Blum & Co., Inc. is unique in the industry. While most companies choose to maintain minimum stock, we have always had substantial quantities on hand of every item shown in our Catalog. We take pride in our prompt service and generally ship within a day or two of receiving an order.
Providing quality material is a tradition at Blum. With a very few exceptions, all components are manufactured in the USA. Understanding that the majority of our items are purchased for architectural use, care is given to providing an excellent ﬁnish. We have added a dedicated staff member whose responsibility includes careful scrutiny of all incoming material.
Julius Blum & Co., Inc. supplies stock material only and does not offer custom design, fabricating or installation services. It has always been our philosophy never to compete with our customers. As Julius Blum wrote in 1938, “We want our customers to sell our goods at a Proﬁt…and…for our Iron Master customers to be successful.”
Shipping And Packaging
All components are produced and handled with great care and protected for shipment by wrapping and/or crating to assure a product well suited for architectural metal work. Aluminum bars, angles, channels and tubing—except for structural shapes—are stocked in mill wrapped bundles of approximately 100 pounds. Each bundle is paper interleaved to protect the surface during storage and shipment.Small package shipments are made via courier service. All other shipments are by common carrier, FOB, Carlstadt NJ.
Protecting The Environment
With a ﬁrm belief that we must all do our part to protect the environment, Julius Blum & Co., Inc. has long worked to reduce waste in our daily operation. By using old newspapers as packing material, re-using storage boxes and bins in the warehouse, recycling unused business forms into memo pads, and placing solar panels on the roof of our building, we seek to lessen our impact on our surroundings.
The architectural metals we stock are largely composed of recycled material. We are glad to provide information on the recycled content of our material for those seeking LEED certiﬁcation.
