For more than 100 years, Corrugated Metals has manufactured metal products for our customers. While our experience goes back more than a century, Corrugated Metals constantly rolls ahead with the times, meeting the changing needs of the industries we serve. We are dedicated to continuously improving our capabilities, both in our manufacturing processes and controls, and in our service to our customers.

Staying on track with the changing needs of our customers, we are always participating in the growth of the industries we cater to. With the recent spike in demand for freight cars (the spike is directly related to the resurgence in the auto industry), we’re happy to participate in the growth of the railcar industry that’s impacting manufacturers across the nation. Corrugated Metals manufactures component parts for both freight railcars (including boxcar and auto-carrying cars) and passenger railcars, two distinct segments in the rail industry.

Our capabilities meet our customers’ width and gauge requirements of up to 64-inch coil widths and gauges of up to .250-inch material. Essentially, we can manufacture any component part needed within these specifications. Additionally, we easily meet our customers’ quality requirements. We are ISO 9001:2008 registered, maintaining a high level of quality throughout the production process.

For passenger railcars, Corrugated Metals manufactures the corrugated and roll-formed materials that go into the railcars, specifically in the roofs and side walls. We’re able to maintain tight tolerances and to work with special alloys in the manufacturing process.
