Metal Sales Manufacturing, a leader in advanced metal roof and wall panel technology, opened its 20th regional manufacturing facility.
As many competitors lay off workers or close their doors, Metal Sales Manufacturing continues to build for the future with a new Fort Smith, Ark., branch that will hire employees over the next 3 years.
"We’re building for the future," says Metal Sales Manufacturing president Jim Waldron. "This new location will allow us to provide better service to an important region of the country."
The new officially opened April 5. "The Fort Smith Chamber of Commerce was helpful in bringing these new employment opportunities to Arkansas," says Waldron.
The 34,000-square-foot location at 7510 Ball Road, Fort Smith, Arkansas will serve the needs of commercial, agricultural, and residential customers better throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma and Northern Louisiana by producing the high-efficiency Energy Star Rated Cool Roof Systems and feature a private delivery fleet with Moffett off-loading capabilities.
"More people are beginning to realize the value and durability that a quality metal roof can provide," says Fort Smith branch manager Bob Bright. "With our new Fort Smith location, they have access to a wide selection of colors, styles, and features closer to home, which will reduce overall costs and transportation expenses for our customers."
