YOUR County Chamber




    For over 30 years, Metal-Era, Inc. has been serving the commercial roofing industry by providing high-quality, long lasting engineered roof edge solutions.  The company was founded as a small manufacturing plant in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1980. By the late 1990’s, we had grown enough to move into a brand new 60,000 square foot facility right down the road from the original building.  We continued to see growth creating a need to expand our facility two additional times, to have a total of 115,000 square feet. Metal-Era’s business continues to grow rapidly, by introducing new brands and expanding into new markets like commercial ventilation.


    Metal-Era, Inc. is proud to be a Minority Business Enterprise and a member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council. Minority Business credit is available on all Metal-Era Roof Edge and Airflow products as well as our complete line of private label products.

    In 2006 Metal-Era introduced an innovative line of airflow products to provide commercial buildings with proper intake and exhaust venting. Our popular Hi-Perf Airflow Systems have filled a large need within the industry for ventilation products that are tailored to commercial buildings.

    Manufacturing & Engineering

    Our commitment to innovation extends from our products to our manufacturing. In 2008, we introduced robotics into our manufacturing process to increase productivity and consistency and improve our lead times. Our first robot was used for spring clip automation, and this process was such a success that we added more robots. We now have additional robots focused on notching, acute forming and clip finishing. The use of robotics has enabled us to standardize our products and dramatically improve efficiencies. For our customers, this means high performance products which are quick to ship.


    Metal-Era is well-known for its custom design capabilities and uses the most advanced up-to-date computer CAD design and manufacturing equipment to guarantee consistent, quality products. Our lean manufacturing allows us to reduce lead times and provide faster turn-around on most orders.
