Petersen Aluminum is expanding its operations with the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Phoenix. The 52,000-square-foot facility is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2018.
The facility will be equipped to provide the Western U.S. construction market with the full line of PAC-CLAD steel and aluminum cladding products, including seam roof panels, hidden- and exposed-fastener wall panels, sheet, coil, and more.
The expansion west provides a solution to growth challenges Petersen has faced, says Mike Petersen, CEO. “To date, we have been limited in our ability to effectively service customers in the Western United States, largely because of the challenges and high costs of transporting products from our Texas and Illinois facilities and over the Rocky Mountains. By opening this Phoenix facility, we’re creating a foundation on which to grow the PAC-CLAD brand into the West Coast market.”
The new facility will be managed by David Hedrick, whose background includes more than 15 years of management leadership in both the manufacturing and architectural metals industries. "I'm excited about joining the Petersen team and opening this new PAC-CLAD manufacturing facility. The Arizona PAC-CLAD team looks forward to providing the Western United States construction industry with the high-quality PAC-CLAD products and professional service the rest of the country has enjoyed for more than 50 years," Hedrick says.
