Sheet Metal Supply, a leading fabricator and supplier of formed perimeter edge materials and processed coil and flat stock for more than 25 years, moved its operation into a new and larger facility in Grayslake, Ill.
Located in a 30,000 square foot building in Mundelein, Ill., the last eight years, SMS completed the move into a state-of-the-art 80,000 square foot facility at 150 Pine Street on March 23.
“Moving into a new plant is our reaction to industry demand and a growing desire for a wider range of products and materials,” says Ben Kweton, CSI-EP, Vice President of Sheet Metal Supply. “The added space and new equipment allow us to be quicker with our response time and more flexible for our customers.”
The new plant includes a second ACM routing table to increase SMS’s capabilities beyond ACM and into heavier single skin products, phenolic resin-based and fiber cement-based façade solutions as well. In addition, SMS purchased a 21-foot bi-directional folder, allowing for the forming of longer parts or multiple 10-foot parts. SMS will also be able to provide more customized solutions into the façade market.
