About Us

CHRG Metals officially became a division of United Performance Metals on October 1, 2013.  CHRG had previously operated as a division of O’Neal Steel.  CHRG Metals, O’Neal Steel, and United Performance Metals are all affiliates of O’Neal Industries.

CHRG Metals is a supplier of corrosion and heat resistant stainless and nickel alloy sheet and plate.  FIRSTCUT+® Services include hi-definition plasma cutting, shearing, laser/water jet cutting, sawing, forming and other processes.

United Performance Metals and its divisions are leading suppliers of stainless steel, nickel, cobalt, aluminum and titanium.  Comprehensive inventory includes high temperature, high strength and corrosion resistant alloys in sheet, coil, strip, plate, bar, forged block and near net shapes.  FIRSTCUT+® Services offered are Precision Shearing, Precision Sawing, Slitting, Edging, Leveling, Hi-Definition Plasma Cutting, Laser Cutting, Water Jet Cutting, Machining, Chamfering & Facing, Deburring & Finishing, and Precision Cold Saw Cutting.

Headquartered in Hamilton, Ohio, United Performance Metals maintains branches in La Mirada, California and Houston, Texas as well as sales and stocking locations worldwide.  Specialty divisions of the company include Plus Ten Stainless located in Benicia, California, and Vulcanium located in Northbrook, Illinois.


CHRG Metals was formed January 1, 2012 when TAD Metals-Houston (a member of the O’Neal family of companies) and a specialized product group within O’Neal Steel combined forces to bring their customers a more robust offering of specialty stainless steel and nickel alloy flat products.

The recent transition to United Performance Metals places both companies in a position to bring their customers additional products and services that are a perfect complement to one another.

As part of the U.S.A.’s largest family-owned group of metals service centers, United Performance Metals brings with it the strength and support of the entire O’Neal Industries family of companies.  United Performance Metals is a customer-focused organization that is committed to delivering the metal you need and the solutions you want!
