Union Corrugating has installed additional equipment in their Scranton, Pa plant that gives Union the capability of producing more product and reducing lead-times for their customers. The equipment includes both an additional panel line and trim line. “Our panel line produces R/PBR panels and MasterRib”, says Keith Medick, Union Corrugating president and CEO. “The second panel line was added as a direct response to customer demand for our MasterRib panel which is a three foot exposed fastener product. In addition, being able to produce R and PBR panels for industrial, commercial and steel frame building applications opens up new markets for us.”

The trim line produces Ridge Cap, J-Channel, Rake & Corner and Rake profiles. “We are excited to be able to provide a new level of convenience to our customers by offering custom length trims. Both of these lines will enable Union’s customers to realize a reduction of time between order placement and delivery, and ultimately help them capture more business,” says Medick.

Union Corrugating announces the addition of panel line and roll-formed trim equipment at their Ocala, FL, facility. “Our customers in Florida benefit from this additional capacity”, says Keith Medick, Union Corrugating president and CEO. “Shorter lead-times for our products is one of our strategies as we strive to become a convenient metal roofing supplier.”

In addition to cutting flat sheets, the new panel line produces 2 1/2 inch oval and R/PBR profiles. The new trim lines produce Ridge Cap, J-trim, and C-fascia. Union Corrugating already produces MasterRib, 5V, and Adlok II standing seam panels at the Ocala facility. All of the new equipment is now operational.
