N.B. Handy Showcases Sheet Metal Machinery During ‘Spring Fling 2014’

The N.B. Handy Company held its “Spring Fling 2014” Machinery Show on April 28-30 in Lynchburg, Va. Top roofing vendors brought their machines and worked with Paul Seufer, general manager at N.B. Handy, to showcase profitability through productivity.

The “Spring Fling” is the largest architectural sheet metal show under one roof in the Mid Atlantic Region. Attendees saw live demonstrations of the full suite of machinery products, including Quadro pan former, Lockformer CNC plasma cutter, Norlok metal fastening machine, Flagler Offset Snaplock machine and an ironworker to manufacture gutter brackets and punch holes.

Participating vendors were excited to travel from all over the country to meet with N.B. Handy customers and engage and share in the concepts and technologies being highlighted. The crowd saw lots of machines, asked questions and observed demonstrations with their own spec parts. Several customers took advantage of show specials to help them get the best machines into their shops now, at the beginning of the construction season.

Seufer took the opportunity of having the show serve a dual purpose; he held a roofing hands-on training session for the N.B. Handy roofing staff members and the employees at their subsidiary company, Morris Ginsberg. To qualify for participation, each person had to pass a pre-test to prove they were prepared to build a roof. The group worked as a cohesive crew to build a mock-up of a roof, incorporating ANSI and SPRI National Standards. This invaluable exercise showed the team what their contractors do on a daily basis.

“The Spring Fling was a place for everyone to bring their curiosity about the roofing industry and see for themselves, through a working exhibition, the incredible array of machines available today that keep us productive and profitable,” Seufer says.

N.B. Handy, headquartered in Lynchburg, Va., has 14 strategically located, full-service sales and distribution facilities in Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
