Military & Government


The metals industry is important to the United States government and military because it supplies the raw materials needed to produce weapons, vehicles, and other equipment used by the military. Additionally, the metals industry also plays a vital role in the production of infrastructure and other government-funded projects. The availability of a strong domestic metals industry also allows for greater control over the supply chain and reduces dependence on foreign sources. Kloeckner Metals is proud to supply the United States government and military.

    1. Weaponry: Metal is used to manufacture a wide range of weapons, including small arms, tanks, and aircraft.
    2. Vehicles: Metal is used to manufacture vehicles for the military and government, such as tanks, trucks, and aircraft.
    3. Infrastructure: Metal is used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure, such as military bases, government buildings, and airports.
