Meet Al Lowe our President and Founder. Al graduated from Ball State University in 1985 with a degree in Business and Marketing. After graduation Al had a short stent in an unrelated sales position before joining a flat rolled steel service center. While there he specialized in carbon steel sheets and coils for the automotive and consumer products industry.
Al always had strong interest in auto racing and discovered a need for a specialty metals supplier focused on the auto racing industry. In 1995 A.E.D. METAL PRODUCTS was established. "With what I learned about service standards, business relations, customer loyalty and dedication required for the automotive industry, A.E.D. began to thrive and develop into a global leader in the supply of race car structural materials" Al Lowe.
Al considerers the introduction of Docol® Tube R8 to chassis builders and the auto racing industry one of A.E.D. METAL PRODUCTS greatest accomplishments. We marketed Docol® from 2011 to 2012 and placed his first mill order in 2013. Since 2013 he has been educating and working with potential users of the values of these advanced high strength steels. Today we have several hundred regular users of Docol®, and hundreds of cars in nearly all forms of racing, both domestic and international. "It is certainly an honor to introduce a product to such a competitive industry that has been so well received and change the way many look at chassis structural materials." Al Lowe.
Aside from A.E.D., AL and a group of partners acquired BOYCE Industries, a tube forming operation with a 30-year history in the performance and industrial markets. In addition to tube forming BOYCE offers a variety of tube and end forming options and light Fabrication.
When not working, Al is developing 14 acres of woods that he recently relocated to on the westside of Indianapolis. When not working the property, he enjoys hiking, bicycling, and cruising the county side in his sports car.
