Englert Inc., the New Jersey-based supplier of painted metal coil and metal fabricating machinery for the roofing and gutter industry, and Swenson Shear of Ceres, California, manufacturer of innovative tools to speed the preparation and installation of metal panels, have announced a strategic alliance to provide the Metalman Snaptable HD, and The Metalman Snaptable Pro collection of panel preparation equipment.
With the new partnership, Englert will offer its customers two new all-in-one panel preparation machines with the ability to notch, slit and hem standing seam profiles from 12” to 24,” along with 33” to 60” slitting and hemming capabilities, while saving an average of 35 percent in labor cost.
Tony Newman, director of sales at Englert notes, “We have long sought to align with an innovative equipment manufacturer in the U.S.A. and feel we have now connected with a company whose products are suitable to Englert’s level of quality.”
The alliance gives Englert proven metal preparation products it can confidently offer to customers. “The Metalman Snaptables are easy to use and are more effective than manual efforts to create perfect valleys, ridges and edges,” Newman remarked. “These products will enhance the roll forming product line we already offer, and we know that our customers will be particularly happy with the two-year manufacturers’ warranty.”
With a tradition of innovation and proud craftsmanship that stretches back to 1966, Englert serves commercial and residential roofing contractors throughout the United States with the highest quality painted metal coil, a wide variety of roofing accessories, including seamers and curvers, and numerous, in-stock roll-forming machines, including the Multi-Panel which can roll-form 10 different panel widths and styles.
Newman continued, “We are dedicated to developing relationships and creating programs that support the growth of our customers’ businesses. “We listen to our customers and anticipate their changing needs. These co-branded Metalman Snaptables are just one more example of that guiding principle.”
Englert introduced the new machines at the International Roofing Exposition in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 17-19.
