“I am doing construction business and I use a lot of decking panels like this. Therefore, I believe it’s a right call to get a cold roll former to produce the decking panels on my own. Not only the decking panel roll forming machine, but also I have large needs for the stud and tracks, so the next move I am going to take will be buying a stud and track roll forming machine.” Mr. Gaby Barakat from a construction company in US told MTC when he visited the company. “Apart from my own use, I can also sell the decking panels to many other people I know”. On his face is his proud and excitement to make the decision to buy his own cold roll former.
There are so many stories that is like Mr. Gaby Barakat, however, not everyone can move one more step forward. A cold roll former can do many jobs automatically, so that you can save much money and time. For example, if you need roof flashings, you can pre-cut the sheet on a shearing machine and bend the sheet into roof flashing on a bending machine. Every each piece of flashing will take you at least 10 minutes. Supposed you had your own cold roll former, you would make at least 20 pieces of flashing within 10 minutes. Of course you can buy the finished flashings from Mr. Gaby Barakat, and that’s why he’s successful for his business.
Why do you need a cold roll former?

In addition, the cost of making panels is far lower, beyond his expectation, than that of buying panels. Furthermore, with over 10-year experience in construction industry, he knows so many people that doing same business in the field. Therefore, he has handful of potential customers.
