Thacher_Island_IMG_0356One of this year’s interesting projects, was an order for corrugated Aluminum replacement panels for a 50 year-old catch basin for rain water. The 25,000-gallon basin is located under a roof on Thacher Island, a 50-acre National Historic Landmark off the coast of Rockport, Massachusetts. Captain John Smith visited the island in 1614.

Peter Bergholtz, VP of the Thacher Island Association, said that our Sinewave panels fit perfectly over the 50-year old panels. “I was very elated with everything, just what we wanted”, was Peter’s comment after finishing the first phase of the project this year.

Thacher Island hosts about 2,000 visitors annually. A ferry runs every Wednesday and Saturday from June through the first weekend in September. If you are interested in visiting or viewing images of Thacher Island, check out their website: http://thacherisland.org/.

We Want You… To Tell Us What You Want

As a company that has been around for as many years as we have, we have received countless numbers of requests from clients in regards to products or capabilities they were looking for. Since we pride ourselves on always meeting the needs of every client, it is important to us to consider each request and find a way to integrate the core qualities into our business. That is exactly how we have grown from a company focused only on roofing and siding products to that of one serving OEMs, passenger rails, and military supplies as well. Over the years, we have learned how to grow and adapt to the changing needs and technologies of the industry. Today, it is no different.

To be more specific, we recently were approached about becoming a one-stop shop for the roofing and siding industry. One customer needed all new roofing and siding materials, including the flashing and other types of equipment. At the time, we were only able to provide the flat sheet of material—the customer would have had to go to another vendor in order for the flashings. In order to make it more efficient and cost effective for our customers, we have begun offering flashings and panels as well. Why not take advantage of the opportunity to become more reliable and dependent to our audience?

That’s not where we want this to end. As we are looking to expand even further in the coming years, we invite you to help with our product selection. We want to become more of a one-stop shop with all of the products we offer. We invite you to let us know any suggestions!
