In the automotive industry, we know manufacturers require stainless steel & aluminium for many components on the vehicle e.g. trim, exhausts, power-train, chassis, seating, lighting and more. Stainless steel / aluminium coil, blanks, sheet and aluminium extrusion are durable, efficient and are supplied directly into tier 1 companies.
The average weight of a vehicle rolling off the production line in 2020 was 4,156 pounds (1,885kg) *, with much of the weight coming from the use of steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
In the automotive industry, we know manufacturers require stainless steel & aluminium for many components on the vehicle.
At Sherwood, we provide a range of finished products including steel for trims, exhausts, power-train, chassis, seating, lighting and more.
The explosion in consumer demand for and consequent production of electric vehicles has opened up more opportunities in aluminium light weighting to support a push to lower overall weight, energy effectiveness, carbon reduction and aesthetic quality.
And we’re seeing opportunities in areas surrounding battery containment and charging, with aluminium extrusion perfect to help vehicles achieve greater efficiency.
