Our Capabilities

Rolling ---- 3/16'' thru 6'' Plate - Both HOT or COLD

We have some of the largest plate rolls in the eastern part of the United States to help meet any requirements. Our plate rolling equipment, skilled operators and the knowledge we've gained from years of experence combine to produce light to heavy wall rolled and welded cylinders and segments of the highest quailty. We can make single or multiple courses as necessary. Available lengths are dependent on the inside diameter of the cylinder (HOT or COLD), the type of material that is being rolled and the ID to material thickness ratio.

We can roll our own material or we can work with your supply. If you are going to be providing your own material please consult with our sales representative for the correct material size required for the job.
