Greetings from Chicago (aka “Chi-beria”) where in the last month on at least one day it was colder than the South Pole! Construction just doesn’t happen when it’s that cold. Nevertheless, Spring is just around the corner and once this snow melts there ought to be plenty of new work for those of us in the metal construction market.
At Petersen, we continue to invest in new capacity. The recent addition of new Redbud slitters at both our Tyler, Texas and Acworth, Georgia plants will speed up our production and greatly enhance our ability to service the growing slit coil market necessary for on-site rollforming. We continue to add colors to our 20” coil program in support of this growing market.
Our PAC-CLAD color chart now includes 32 standard colors and six PAC-CLAD Metallic finishes. Standard substrates include galvanized steel, galvalume and aluminum. Given this combination of colors and substrates, I dare say we offer the building design community the broadest selection of architectural metal products in the industry.
Finally, our new PAC app for the IPad is now available for free download at the Apple App Store. The PAC App is also available for Android at Google Play. The App features information on all our roofing and wall products including complete detail drawings for each product. Once installed, you can use it anywhere, no internet connection needed. Download your copy today.
We look forward to working with you on your metal requirements as the year unfolds.
