Detroit Tube Products

Basically it’s more cost-effective for us to have well-trained, clever, intelligent, sympathetic craftspeople doing the work.

This is Detroit Tube Products on south junction in Delray. Employees in this single floor warehouse are operating machinery to reshape and finish tubes.  The resulting pieces are shipped to businesses to become parts of things like prison toilets, dishwashers, diesel engines and more.
