The Metal Construction Association (MCA) announced two companies have recently become members of the association: Lorin Industries and Metallic Products. These companies have joined 100+ MCA member companies which include manufacturers and suppliers dedicated to expanding and developing the metal construction industry.
For nearly eight decades, Lorin Industries has been a worldwide provider of coil anodized aluminum. Lorin partners with many of the world's leading designers, product engineers, architects, and fabricators. They are known for their creativity and innovations in bringing new and exciting products and building designs to life and helping their clientele achieve their vision. Their products include coil coating, natural metal, and metal coil.
Established in 1962, Metallic Products takes pride in providing quality, cost-effective ventilation products, outstanding customer service and shortened lead times to its customers. While the company is internationally known for ridge ventilators, it offers a host of related products, including roof curbs, wall louvers, and door canopies.
"Lorin is excited to be a new member of the Metal Construction Association. We believe our membership will serve not only as an opportunity for Lorin to become more educated and involved in the metal construction market, but also for us to provide educational guidance about continuous coil anodizing and the value it can bring to the market as a whole,” said Steven F. Soderberg, corporate marketing manager, Lorin Industries.
Travis Wendt, owner/president, Metallic Products said, "Metallic Products chose to join MCA because of our shared mission in being advocates for the use of metal in the building envelope…especially roofs. We have been in business for 60 years and we believe MCA will help us to prosper for the next 60 and beyond. We look forward to the great work both of our organizations can accomplish together."
Both companies will now have access to the resources available to all MCA members, including updated technical reports, research data, the Annual Market Study, networking opportunities, and industry information in the members only section of the MCA website.
MCA members represent a broad array of companies including metal roof, wall panel, shingles and coatings manufacturers, coil coaters and metal producers, distributors, equipment and accessories manufacturers, energy insulation system manufacturers, MCM fabricators, and contractors.
MCA member companies benefit from participation in association activities and connections among suppliers and industry leaders in research, codes and standards, market development, and technical programs. The association works to increase the use of metal materials in construction by educating the building and design communities about the benefits of metal.
