image_47.jpgNew technology, a dedication to quality, and a willingness to experiment leads many manufacturers to new heights of productivity, and it may just be that those heights will be covered by products made by Everlast Roofing, Inc.

The Lebanon, Penn., manufacturer of high-quality metal building components produced its first products on Valentine’s Day, 1997, and in its decade of operations has grown from just a handful of workers to 80 employees, from $2 million to $40 million in sales.

The company takes special pride in developing its Evercure process: “This process encompasses our G100® Heat Formed™ panel, with our Cut Edge Corrosion Inhibitor (CECI®) enhancement. We have mastered the process of Heat Forming™ by heating the metal coil prior to forming the panel profile.”

Even if that exceeds the usual amount of information you get about your roofing, you can’t argue with results. Evercure works in “preventing microscopic cracking and peeling of paint, and reducing the risk of surface and edge corrosion.”

In this hourlong documentary, Craig Covell, the company’s co-founder and president, walks us through the machinery and processes that produce the many products used in all kinds of buildings.

Once again, we appreciate Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) for supplying the video and keeping us up to date on the state’s manufacturing heroes. To watch this week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made” video, please click here.
