Industry professionals know that Roper Whitney is a brand they can trust. Since the company’s founding in 1910, Roper Whitney has been synonymous with quality and outstanding craftsmanship.

Looking to expand, Roper Whitney purchased Peck, Stow and Wilcox “PEXTO” in the 1970s. Pexto’s long and rich history as one of the original American sheet metal tool manufacturers was a great compliment to Roper Whitney’s product line.

In 1985, Roper Whitney made a strategic purchase by adding the “Connecticut” line of manual brakes, known for being among the most accurate and dependable in the industry. The addition of this line made Roper Whitney a leading supplier of high quality sheet metal fabricating equipment.

TennSmith, a market leader in sheet metal fabricating machinery and metal forming equipment, acquired both Roper Whitney in 2011 and Roll Former Corporation in 2021. United under TennSmith’s umbrella, the combined prowess of Roper Whitney, Roll Former, and TennSmith delivers the most comprehensive range of American-made sheet metal machinery available in the market today.
