Trachte Building Systems, a manufacturer and supplier of self-storage buildings, has purchased Roof Mart Cos., which consists of Made Right LLC, Metal Land LLC and Roof Mart LLC. All are based in Vernon, Ala. Joe McNees, chief operating officer for Roof Mart, will join Trachte as general manager for a new Roof Mart division, according to a press release.
The acquisition will give Trachte a new operating platform to improve its position as a supplier of self-storage building systems, steel-curtain doors, refurbishment services and public safety-training systems. It’ll also provide the required resources to accelerate the growth of Roof Mart and Made Right, the release stated.
“Roof Mart’s entrepreneurial roots and customer-focused culture make the Roof Mart team a natural fit with employee ownership. We welcome the Roof Mart teammates to the Trachte team,” said Trachte CEO Jeff Burbach. “We will invest in our Vernon operation to enhance the value of all of our combined products and services for our customers.”
Founded in 1901 and based in Sun Prairie, Wis., Trachte is an employee-owned company that manufactures metal prefabricated buildings and components for self-storage, fire-training towers and tactical-training facilities. Its customized self-storage systems include single- and multi-story, interior partition and corridor, and canopy boat/RV.
Roof Mart Cos. was launched by Robert McNees in 2004. It manufactures and markets metal-roof panels, wall panels, trims, trusses, sheds, and post and beam building packages. The companies also erect post-frame buildings.
