Traditionally, corrugated metal has been used as exterior cladding such as roofing or siding.

However, utilizing corrugated metal in a wide variety of applications is growing. There are many good reasons to use corrugated metal. Among the most prevalent are a clean, sleek appearance, strength, product life-cycle, cost efficiency, and the ability to give particular space a unique appearance. 

Some of different uses for corrugated metal panels are:

Fencing: When used with appropriate farming/posts, it will last for years to come!

Garden Beds: Use corrugated metal panels as fascia of a flower bed.

Corrugated Metals and ISO 9001:2008

corrugated_metalThere might not be a higher honor in the world of manufacturing than achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification. It is the gold standard when it comes to assuring customers of a company’s commitment to quality and consistency. At Corrugated Metals, we put tremendous effort, time, and money into attaining our ISO 9001:2008 certification. We believe that it gives our customers peace of mind and a sense they will also receive the best products and service.

So, what exactly is ISO 9001:2008 certification and why is it so coveted? The ISO 9001:2008 is a prestigious international standard that sets out the requirements of a quality management system. 

As you might imagine, attaining such a certification is not easy. The process to becoming ISO 9001:2008 certified is long, exacting, and exhaustive. The standard it self has a minimum of 28 different specific requirements. You must have everyone (and also a large number of sub-requirements) or you will not even have the chance to apply. Even after meeting these requirements, you then have to train your entire staff how to implement and constantly maintain the ISO 9001:2008 standards. This is topped off with a full documentation of your system and an exhaustive audit from the ISO organization.

Only about 25,000 American companies have obtained this prestigious status, so the entire Corrugated Metals team is exceedingly proud of our ISO 9001:2008 certification. In many ways, it is our way of saying to our customers that we will always put quality and their needs ahead of our own.

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!
