Union Corrugating has purchased two new trim lines for its Fayetteville, N.C., manufacturing facility. In its continuing effort to bring the best metal roofing products to the industry, CEO Keith Medick says: “We’ve experienced strong sales growth and were looking at ways to improve both our production capacity and overall product quality. This significant investment helps us in both areas, which will lead to happier customers.”
The new lines improve production tolerances, speed part changeovers and allow for the production of two parts at the same time. Quality improvement of the ridge cap, fascia, rake and corner, and gable trims are most evident because these parts are very visible. “Consistent, closer tolerances of parts off of these lines diminish installation issues and improve the aesthetics of the overall installation,” says Medick.
In addition to the improved quality of parts, the new equipment will provide quicker lead times. “I look at this equipment as another stepping stone to the A+ experience we want to offer our customers,” says Medick. “We keep pushing the bar to new heights.”
