About

The Metal Supply You Need. The Prices and Service You Desire.

Our vision is to be Arizona’s premier provider of ready to manufacture custom transformed raw material. We achieve this by providing the raw material sourcing along with a variety of value added services so that you, our customer, can focus on the manufacturing processes, growth and prosperity of your business.


Why HT Metals?

IMG_0521_sizedToo much time is lost in material purchases these days. Many machine shops and fabricators subcontract (or have the distributor subcontract) the custom waterjet cutting of 2D shapes. This adds onto the cost of the metal and slows the delivery of the order.

HT Metals is different.

We’re a distributor. That means, we’re able to save you money by beating the material prices of other waterjet providers.

Your projects take priority. We never sell extra capacity on our waterjet machine, which means we can offer quick custom transformation of the raw materials to your custom dimensions. .

It’s these unique features that allow your projects to move faster at a more cost effective price.

Sourcing for All Your Metal Needs

Searching for Stainless Steel?  Aluminum? Titanium? Another type of metal? We’ve got you covered. If we don’t have what you’re looking for in-house, we’ll source it for you. Never buy metal without asking us for a quote first. You’ll be amazed at how competitive our prices are compared to other metal distributors.
