This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.

LynRus Aluminum Products are found everywhere from ski resorts to amusement parks, and from sports arenas to parking lots. The Salt Lake City-based company manufactures aluminum products of every kind, including components for roller coasters, automobile engines, ladders and valves.

LynRus was founded in 1949 by two brothers, Lynn and Russ Margetts. Russ’ son, also named Russ Margetts, now operates the company of 50 employees.

Sales and Marketing Director John Pos tells me that LynRus is one of the few remaining U.S. aluminum manufacturers that has not taken its business overseas to cut costs. Even so, LynRus has garnered customers across the globe with its reliable service and commitment to quality.

LynRus custom manufactures aluminum products as well as producing and selling its own products. Its lifting and safety systems are sold worldwide. John says the systems are primarily used to raise and lower basketball backboards safely. They are found in school gymnasiums and in recreational and professional arenas across the globe. In fact, the lifting system in the Utah Jazz’s Zions Bank Basketball Center practice facility was made by LynRus under the Spalding label.

LynRus Aluminum Products provides services ranging from aluminum casting and machining to advanced finishing and assembly. John says aluminum has many advantages to other metals. It is one-third the weight of steel, yet is stronger and more resistant to corrosion.

LynRus Aluminum Products in Salt Lake City has carved a niche in the casting and manufacturing industry with its domestic locale and its years of experience making, selling and designing aluminum products.
