COMMERCE, MICH. (Nov. 15, 10:20 a.m. ET) — Michigan Roll Form Inc. recently completed a 30-mile move west to a new 40,000 square foot facility in Commerce.

“We simply outgrew our previous building. This move doubles our floor space giving us much needed elbow room,” said President Steve Arens, in a news release.

The company, which was previously located in Fraser, Mich., managed its production so that it was able to gradually make the move over the course of the last few months.

Michigan Roll is expanding its product line offerings in the vinyl extrusion industry. It has a new line of extrusion post forming products including calibration tables, embosser/chill roll machines, calibrators and inserts.

The company products include roll form machines and tooling; mechanical and air presses; flying cut-off, crop notch and plastic extrusion dies; coil holders, flying cut-off saws, re-coiling and rotary perforator machines.

Michigan Roll was founded in 1952 as a roll form tooling company. The company has grown through the acquisition of the Contour, Pneu-Powr and Pfeiffer brands. Its purchase of the assets of TruTech Tool and Machine Co. in 2010 expanded its metal forming capability.

Arens said the company plans to hire more employees for both manufacturing and engineering.
