Tri Star Metals and Aubert & Duval Establish Strategic Distribution Agreement for Defense Products


FREEPORT, Ill., June 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Tri Star Metals is pleased to announce the establishment of an exclusive North American distribution agreement with Aubert & Duval, a leading manufacturer of advanced material solutions for the defense industry. This collaboration signifies a pivotal moment for Tri Star as it diversifies its product offerings and expands its reach in the defense sector.

The partnership will introduce a range of high-performance proprietary grades of steel, including the proprietary barrel grade ARMAD®, as well as advanced engineered grades tailored for barrels and components critical to defense applications. Under this agreement, Tri Star aims to meet the evolving needs of the defense industry by delivering premium quality materials for high-performance solutions.

The negotiation of this agreement was cultivated by Mike Walsh, founder and former president of Centric Alloys, who initiated discussions with Aubert & Duval two years ago. In February 2024, Tri Star acquired Centric Alloys to enhance its presence in defense markets. Mike Walsh subsequently joined Tri Star as Vice President of Defense. The successful execution of this agreement underscores the dedicated efforts of both organizations to strengthen their collaboration and enhance product offerings for the North American defense market.

Quoting Jay Mandel, CEO & President at Tri Star Metals: "Our partnership with Aubert & Duval exemplifies our commitment to providing top-notch materials and solutions. These specialty alloys developed by A & D will enable us to expand upon our existing base of commodity stainless, nickel and aluminum products provided to defense markets. By incorporating Aubert & Duval's highly engineered steel products into our portfolio, we aim to elevate standards of quality and innovation for our customers."
