WAUKESHA, WIS. – Metal-Era LLC has acquired the entire metal roof edge product line, manufacturing operation, and assets from OMG Roofing Products. The acquisition includes the plant, equipment, and team located in Asheville, North Carolina, as well as the rights to the venerable Hickman brand name.
“OMG has been a good steward of the business since 2013,” said Tony Mallinger, President & CEO of Metal-Era. “We are excited to bring back the Hickman Edge Systems brand, the first pre-manufactured roof edge in the US and a pioneer in the fascia and coping industry.”
Combined, the two organizations and two brands will have the largest selection of tested roof edge products in North America, offering a variety of options for customers to protect their commercial roofing systems at the perimeter. “We believe additional investment in Hickman Edge Systems and their workforce in Asheville will serve both of our customer bases extremely well,” said Mallinger. “We look forward to integrating best practices from both businesses.” No significant changes are expected in personnel at Metal-Era in Waukesha or the existing Hickman location in Asheville.
