Southern Stretch Moves its Pennsylvania Location
August 4, 2011

Southern Stretch Forming in Denton, Texas, has moved its Pennsylvania location from Zelienople to Butler. The new leased location is 13,000 square feet in area with an additional 6,000 square feet available for future growth.

The new shop will offer precision curving of extrusions, formed lineal break metal and arched frames for hollow metal doors. It houses three stretch form presses ranging from 17 tons to 30 tons, and a 26-foot-by-8-foot-by-8-foot oven for tempering and annealing aluminum, all moved from the Zelienople location. The company doesn’t plan to add any new lines in the next six months, says Charles Michie, marketing director of Southern Stretch Forming. The new location has two new additional people in staff.

The company has been in Pennsylvania since April 2006. With the new location, along with the one in Modesto, Calif., and the home office location near Dallas, the company says that it can now provide curved metal needs throughout the United States.

“Work on schools and churches is steady to strong,” Michie says. “The new location gives us room for growth and more inside area, which will prevent slowdowns that can occur during winter weather. Plus, Butler is much easier for me to say than Zelienople.”
