One interesting aspect of the numbers in our construction survey responses is the expansion plans for Rollforming Magazine subscribers. When immediate and future expansion plans are combined, several categories reach 78-80% (primary for metal roof and metal building; participate for gutters) and all are 60%+. Of the categories in the 78-80% range, Rollforming subscribers are 6% or more above the others to have immediate expansion plans and 8% above all respondents.  

43% of responding Rollforming Magazine subscribers are adding metal forming equipment. RF
