Metal-Era’s Track Record of Growth and Innovation

Metal-Era was founded as a small manufacturing plant in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1980. By the late 1980’s, we had already grown enough to move into a 44,000 square foot facility. Metal-Era’s business has continued to grow rapidly, by introducing new brands like our contractor-friendly Edge Systems One and expanding into new areas like ventilation with our innovative Airflow Solutions products. To accommodate that growth, we have continued to expand our manufacturing, warehouse and administrative space, and Metal-Era now occupies more than 100,000 square feet.

Our commitment to innovation extends from our products to our manufacturing. In 2008, we introduced robotics into our manufacturing process to increase productivity and consistency and improve our lead times. Our first robot was used for spring clip automation, and this process was such a success that we added more robots. We now have additional robots focused on notching, acute forming and clip finishing. The use of robotics has enabled us to standardize our products and dramatically improve efficiencies. For our customers, this means high performance products which are quick to ship.
