Roofinox: Company's Stainless Steel Chosen to Fill Market Void Left by Follansbee
Feb. 12, 2016 — When Follansbee closed its doors, removing its TCS II from availability a few years ago, it left a serious hole in the market for architectural stainless steel, according to Allan Brock, president, Brock and Associates, of Pittsburgh.
“Architects still need TCS-II and many are still specifying it for their designs," he said. "So we decided to satisfy this market by bringing Roofinox into our product line."
Brock Associates is now sourcing material for its commercial roofing and siding/ACM applications from Roofinox America, the U.S. arm of Roofinox International, Europe’s leading supplier of quality stainless steel specifically designed for roofing and roll-forming.
“Over recent years, we have seen the market for metal in roofing, siding, and paintable flashing increasing,” Brock said, “especially in the high-end applications, in our market area of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, New Jersey, and Virginia. When we saw an opportunity to re-introduce stainless into the market with Roofinox, we went for it, and we have not been disappointed.”
“We are extremely pleased about Brock’s decision to go with Roofinox,” said Dave Rowe, vice president of sales, Roofinox America. "Roofinox Tin Plated stainless offers a great replacement for the old TSC II, along with a rich architectural appearance.
“The good news” he added, “is that it is 20 percent more malleable than any other stainless products on the market, making it easier than ever to roll-form."
