AMERICAN-MADE IS WHAT WE LOOK FOR

“We were looking to expand our fabrication capabilities. We are a Metal stud and drywall construction company that also does exterior finishes. We have found that during Covid our ability to get custom product was greatly impacted. We have a 90+ year history, so we decided that customers mean more and decided to find ways to provide required items to finish products, and self-fabrication has been the answer!

We are a Union Based company and American-made is what we look for to support the American working force. Four years ago is when we purchased our first Autobrake, and have since purchased a second. Both were seamless purchases, and we can’t wait until we decide to purchase another piece to add to our capabilities.

The Roper Whitney team had the machine setup documents to include a complete checklist to ensure we were ready upon delivery and arrival of the final setup/ training team. Having a direct line to the sales team and a person that was knowledgeable about the product and its requirements was very helpful. Also, we experienced prompt follow-up and resolution to any issue we ran into during the process, and our machine was ready to ship before the projected delivery date.”

THE MACHINE RUNS LIKE A CHAMP, AND IT IS SIMPLE AND EASY TO WORK ON.

“Roper Whitney’s machine matched what we were looking for, and the price was good. They also answered all our questions and didn’t have a problem customizing the backgauge and tooling for us. The machine runs like a champ, and it is simple and easy to work on.

They are a good company that is willing to work with you on your project, to get it just right. Also, when we need help we get answers faster than other companies we deal with.”

THE SERVICE DEPT WAS VERY GOOD. FROM TIMELY RESPONSE, TO SCHEDULING, TO SHIPPING PARTS.

“Nordstrom Metal used to sub contract out our brake forming material. We decided to buy a Roper Whitney and self-perform our own brake metal trims. We had many issues when we subcontracted out the brake forming material. Many issues were resolved once we had our own Roper Whitney brake. Our field installers noticed a significant positive difference once we starting using the Roper Whitney. Material being fabricated exactly to the measurements specified. This purchase took a huge burden off of our hands.” – Hunter Young

“We were a very small company and grew quickly to about 15 employees. Our hand fabricating was taking too much of our time. Since owning Roper Whitney Equipment, we spend less time fabricating and the end result is cleaner, and more and precise.’’ – Angie Kerzman

THERE IS NO DENYING THAT OUR AUTOBRAKE IS STILL THE BACKBONE OF OUR FABRICATION SHOP AND A LARGE CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR COMPANY’S GROWTH.

“We only have great things to say about our Roper Whitney Autobrake. Our current Autobrake is now a decade old; despite this, it is still dependable as ever. It has increased production tremendously, allowing us to bend large orders in record time. There is no denying that our Autobrake is still the backbone of our fabrication shop and a large contributor to our company’s growth. Earlier this year, we started looking into their newer Autobrake models and quickly came to a decision to invest in another machine. In addition to their amazing equipment, Roper Whitney, and their family of brands all have phenomenal employees and customer service. We are looking forward to our continued relationship and delivery of our new Autobrake from Roper Whitney next year.”

AS SOON AS I HAD MY ROPER 1014K UP AND RUNNING, IT WAS MAKING US MONEY' - D&D ROOFING AND SHEET METAL

Dear Roper Whitney,
I want to thank you for selling and Roper Whitney for manufacturing an excellent piece of equipment.

As you know, I was in the market for quite a while for an AUTOBRAKE. My company and I had decided after my extensive research, to purchase a European manufacturer’s model as it was the same manufacturer of a machine we had decades ago. We were told it was the first of the model to be sold in the US and told it would satisfy all of my fabrication needs. It was very uncomfortable to operate and overly complicated to program and run. I had nothing but issues and considered myself lucky if I didn’t have to call the manufacturer more than once a day to get the machine functioning so I could complete jobs. I wasted countless hours and destroyed material trying to jump through hoops to bend simple profiles with this machine. For almost a year I had nothing but issues from programming and simple functioning of my European model, not knowing from day to day if I would even be able to fabricate what my installers needed to complete jobs. In 16 years of operating this type of equipment, I’ve never had so many issues. I ultimately returned the machine to the manufacturer.

I then contacted you to look at and operate Roper machines of the capacity I required. You diligently researched contractors on the west coast that used those AUTOBRAKES and arranged for me to visit them.
As soon as I had my Roper 1014K up and running, it was making us money. Completing tasks without fail, functioning day in and day out, doing all that I asked of it. The ease of use, ease of maintenance, the taller table and the ability to switch to the segmented tooling in a snap had me grinning ear to ear. My 1014K was and continues to be a breath of fresh air. I’ve had my new Roper over 6 months and I’ve only had to call Roper service 3 times. Each time there was an almost immediate response and resolution, something else that was lacking with the European manufacturer.

I want to thank you and Roper for designing such a great, reliable piece of equipment, coupled with outstanding customer service that can be relied on without fail. You never know how bad you had it until you have it good. Our company certainly appreciates Roper Whitney’s efforts to furnish equipment that can actually do what we require for our success.
