Welcome to the very first issue of Rollforming Magazine! From the publishers of Rural Builder, Metal Roofing Magazine and Frame Building News, we are excited about this new publication. One huge market segment transcends all three of our existing publications. Roll formed metal wall and roof panels comprise an enormous portion of the agricultural, commercial, post-frame and residential construction markets. Our existing magazines are aimed at the contractors. Rollforming Magazine will target the roll formers in the construction industry. Targeted products that we will cover include:

• Stationary or portable;

• Panels, gutter or trim;

• Roll formers, seamers, decoilers, benders and brakes;

• Coil, coatings, accessories and consumables; and

• Controls, software and after-market accessories and much more.

If you sell to roll formers, this is your audience. This issue has been in the works for a while now and we thought what better time to showcase all of our hard work than at METALCON? The metal industry has been evolving for a long time, and with that, so has many facets of the industry, including roll forming. We also want to hear from you! If you and your business are doing anything exciting, please let us know. Please contact me (info below) or contact sales representative Gary Reichert at: [email protected]; or call 715-350-7080.

We are really looking forward to hearing from you. And, stop by and visit us at METALCON; we’ll be at booth #609. RF
