MetalForming Inc., Peachtree City, Ga., announced that it is now the exclusive North American distributor for Austria-based Forstner and will market the company’s high-quality coil processing systems. Forstner has been developing and manufacturing quality machines for professional coil processing for more than 40 years, and has been marketing its products in North America since 1986. The partnership is projected to generate annual sales of some $2 million in North America.
“Forstner is among the world’s most preeminent coil processing brands. Adding the Forstner brand to our existing Schlebach and JORNS lines means that we now can offer every conceivable coil processing solution to meet our customer demands for quality, flexibility and cost efficiency,” MetalForming President and CEO Geoff Stone said.
According to Stone, it is now possible for end-users to purchase components from each coil-processing brand that MetalForming represents and join them together for specific job needs.
“We built a partnership with MetalForming because we always retain the No. 1 distributor in each of our important markets. The professional way MetalForming markets its products, its strategic relationships, its vast knowledge and focus on the architectural sheet metal business and its active independent strategy are all factors that make MetalForming a good partner for Forstner,” said Forstner Owner and CEO Renato Romagna.
