IUSA and Cambridge-Lee Industries: Leading the Way with Quality and Service
Cambridge-Lee Industries entered the copper tube industry in 1955 as a small distributor serving the U.S. plumbing market. Over the years, the company has evolved into one of the world’s largest distributors of copper with sales offices in every corner of the globe.
During 1993, Industrias Unidas S.A. de C.V. (IUSA), one of Mexico’s largest conglomerates, acquired Cambridge-Lee. IUSA has a modern, state-of-art copper refinery and tube mill in Pasteje Mexico. In 1996, Cambridge-Lee purchased Reading Tube Corporation, a major U.S. producer of copper tube. As a result of the merger and acquisition, Cambridge-Lee has become one of the world’s leaders in the manufacture and distribution of copper tubes for water supply, air conditioning, refrigeration, and a variety of commercial applications.
Cambridge-Lee has grown to be a world leader because we understand that customer satisfaction requires not only quality products but also a high level of service. Our employees take pride in ensuring we meet our customers needs and requirements: from on-time deliveries to well-trained sales and service departments, to the utmost product quality.
Commitment to Quality
Cambridge-Lee implements strict testing methods and controls to ensure that the highest quality tube reaches our customers. Tubes manufactured are continuously tested for defects by Eddy-Current test units.
ACR Copper Coils & Pipes are dehydrated, degreased, purged with nitrogen, and capped to maintain the internal cleanliness of the product.
From the selection of raw materials to final packaging, our tube is continually tested and inspected at all stages in the manufacturing process to ensure problems and defects are detected and solved at their source. Each Coil is individually packed in dye-cut carton boxes. This ensures the Originality & Exclusivity of the product while also giving additional protection during Transportation. Environmentally harmful material such as plastic shrink wrap is eliminated in the packaging process.
Another step in our ongoing commitment to providing the highest level of product quality, and exceptional customer and technical service is that both our production facilities have achieved ISO 9001:2000 Certification – the international standard for assured product quality. This achievement along with our dedication to you is the driving force that paved the way for and has earned us a reputation as a world- class industry leader.
