Petersen Adds Technical Representatives in Canada for Metal Roof, Wall Systems

Petersen is expanding its network of manufacturer representatives into Canada to meet the country’s growing demand for metal roof and wall cladding systems. The manufacturer representatives from Enercorp will support architects, consultants, installing contractors and others involved in the specification and installation of exterior metal cladding products from coast-to-coast across Canada.

Enercorp (enercorp.ca) will represent Petersen’s PAC-CLAD architectural metal cladding products in Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. The firm also represents products made by Carlisle Construction Materials, which owns Petersen. PAC-CLAD products will be shipped from its Elk Grove Village, Ill., facility.

“Partnering with Enercorp to represent Petersen is a significant step toward successfully servicing Canadian design and construction professionals who are looking for metal roof and wall products. The sales team at Enercorp will satisfy the architectural metal needs of Petersen’s existing and new customers in Canada as we grow the PAC-CLAD brand,” said Mike Petersen, president.

Petersen’s metal cladding products are used in Canada for a wide variety of projects, including commercial, educational, healthcare, residential and most other buildings to deliver a clean and elegant aesthetic. Petersen’s PAC-CLAD products include a high percentage of recycled material, which lowers their environmental footprint and supports sustainability, while being equally applicable for both new construction and restoration of existing building envelopes.

“One of Enercorp’s strengths is consulting architects on product specification, and Petersen is a spec-driven manufacturer, so this is a strongly aligned partnership,” said Dan Meskell, architectural representative at Enercorp. “Adding the PAC-CLAD product line to the Enercorp mix is a natural growth opportunity. We look forward to giving Canadian architects and construction professionals additional options for their exterior cladding needs with quality PAC-CLAD products.”
