Malco is a leading manufacturer of specialty tools for steel or asphalt roofing installation and tear-off.Malco Products, SBC got its start in 1950 when a young steel supply salesman, Mark W. Keymer, decided to manufacture and market a pipe crimper he had invented for use in installing the “new” sheet metal ductwork used with forced air heating systems.
Malco Products -Today Malco Products, SBC is the nation’s leading manufacturer of “tools of the trade” for HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) professionals. In 1975 Malco also created a vital specialty tool market for EXTERIOR REMODELING professionals (Installers of Roofing, Siding and Gutter) and holds the leadership position in that niche as well.
This market definition has since grown to also include tools for installers of FENCE, DECK and RAIL. Another, very recent, market venture for Malco is AUTOBODY REPAIR and REFINISHING. This market presents opportunities for tools that cut or work body panels as well as tools for paint prep. Early on, Malco’s introduction of a power-assisted Quarter Panel Hemming Tool was recognized with a 2014 SEMA Award for Best New Product in the Collision Repair and Refinishing Category.
