Tennsmith [www.tennsmith.com] recently added Roll Former Corporation to its family of brands, joining Roper Whitney. Roll Former Corporation, based in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, has supplied the metal forming industry with roll forming equipment since 1982, including serving as the first company to produce and market portable roll forming machines to the standing seam metal roof industry.

“This acquisition made a lot of sense for Tennsmith as roll forming equipment is a natural extension and complement to the sheet metal forming equipment our company manufactures. With this product line, our organization can provide one of the most comprehensive lines of forming equipment and solutions to the metal forming industry”, remarks Mike Smith, one of the Tennsmith owners.

Tennsmith, which is based in McMinnville, Tennessee, along with Roper Whitney offer an extensive line of metal-forming tools and machinery. The product lines include automatic folders, hand brakes, shears, slip rolls, cleat benders, notchers, and rotary machines, among others.
