SAF celebrates 75 years

March 30, 2021 - SAF, Atlanta, a global metals distributor, fabricator, and finisher, is celebrating its 75th year in business in 2021. Since 1946, SAF has grown from a post-World War II pioneer in anodizing to a full-service aluminum finisher, extrusion and sheet distributor, and metal fabricator offering a complete line of architectural panels, column covers, and exterior building systems.

“SAF’s early beginnings were as one of the first two anodizing lines in the U.S., and we are proud of the new products and service offerings we’ve added to our capabilities over the last 75 years,” said John McClatchey, vice president of sales and marketing at SAF. “We still carry on the anodizing legacy but have grown to be an industry-leading metals distributor, finisher, and fabricator with a much more robust service array. This year serves as a significant milestone for us, and we’re excited for another 75 years.”

To commemorate the 75th anniversary, SAF is giving back to the community with a donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), a leader in type 1 diabetes (TD1) research.

“We believe that supporting our community and giving back to an organization that helps so many people, like JDRF, is crucial to our core values and corporate mission,” said Penn McClatchey, CEO of SAF. “We are just as committed to providing the best products and services to our customers as we are in supporting the causes that are near and dear to the hearts of the SAF team.”

SAF is the only metal service center in the country with anodizing and painting facilities, a full-time fabrication center, and a comprehensive stock of sheet and extrusions from a single source. With facilities in Atlanta, Villa Rica, Georgia, Nashville, Indianapolis, and Redding, California, SAF added expedited 3-Day-Out service for custom sheet metal projects, and next day shipping for anodized and cut-to-length orders.
