To this end, company representatives from CDH Custom Roll Form have already taken orders to create custom roll form products and are having detailed conversations with other potential customers.

Once operational, CDH Custom Roll Form will have the largest engineering support group in the industry. The joint venture is backed by 100 years of experience and will offer state-of-the-art roll forming technology, internal testing and laboratory facilities. The new site will also be able to provide customers with in-house stamping and slitting capabilities, as well as 3D printing and prototyping services. Such proficiencies make CDH Custom Roll Form the ideal partner for customers who want to develop new products. On top of this unmatched innovation, the joint venture will retain the large distribution footprint and world-class customer service capabilities of its parent companies.

Speaking on the joint venture, Ben Towe, Group Managing Director at Hadley Group commented: “This is a significant moment in the history of Hadley Group and underlines our continued commitment to international growth. The North American roll form market is already large but looks set to keep expanding in the future. We want to be integral to that growth and believe this new joint venture puts us in position to do so. For customers, our differentiation is clear, we offer the most innovative cold rolling technologies, as well as excellent management stability and global reach through an existing, extensive distribution network. We’re really excited to get started and can’t wait for the site in Warren to be fully operational in the summer.”

As global demand for high performance building materials continues to rise, CDH Custom Roll Form will supply products with applications across a range of industries. The company’s range will be enhanced by Hadley Group’s innovative UltraSTEEL® process, which enables the production of components with up to 20% more strength and a similar reduction in raw materials. For over 50 years, the company has used the innovative production technique to add value for its customers and react to ever-changing demands.
