Sales Department

Sylvester Sheet Metal's Sales Department prides itself in providing customers and potential customers with service in a timely manner. We welcome any questions that may help our customers within design and production stages. 

Quotes are always provided quickly, and on time.  Our estimates are created using the latest version of Visual Manufacturing Software.  This software provides us with the ability to review all previous work and use the knowledge of “true labor time” for future quotes. Along with this ability, we have up-to-date pricing on our extensive material and hardware inventory. This database of labor time and up-to-date costs provides us with the ability to provide accurate and timely quotes.

The use of this software also allows for constant monitoring of work flow from order entry to shipping. It gives us the ability to immediately identify part location and fabrication progress, allowing us to be proactive in customer communication regarding order status.
