Tour of Matandy Steel & Metal Products and JN Linrose Manufacturing

Join us for this manufacturing plant tour where we will have the unique opportunity to visit two manufacturing facilities, with multiple slitting lines, blanking lines, cold reduction mills, press breaks and shears. We will first tour Matandy Steel, a steel service center that specializes in low carbon coil, sheets, and blanks.  Afterwards, we will head across the railroad tracks to JN Linrose, the only metal framing manufacturer in the Greater Cincinnati area.  They produce light gage studs, track and accessory items for the commercial construction industry utilizing roll forming technology.  While witnessing the roll-forming process for manufacturing metal framing components, we will Learn about carbon-based steel and the processes utilized to prepare it for customer use. We will explore the inherent fire resistance of cold-formed steel framed steel assemblies and the ASTM test standards involved.  We will also learn how the high recycled content of light gauge metal framing coupled with cold-formed steel’s transition to a regional material impacts a project’s LEED consideration.

The tour of these two companies will allow you to see the entire process of steel purchase, reduction, slitting and roll-forming that is utilized onsite to ultimately produce our metal framing components.

Matt Pfirman, President of JN Linrose Mfg, and his staff will be presenting information about both companies and, along with his staff, conducting tours of the facilities.
