Why Rigid-tex®

Rigid-tex® metal has been designed to scientifically redistribute standard sheet metal in three dimensions. Available in ferrous or non-ferrous metals, Rigid-tex® can be provided in sheet, strip, or coil. Enhanced performance and appearance over plain flat-rolled metal equates to stronger, lighter, better looking, and longer lasting metal for your unique application.

What Rigidized® Metals Means to You

When Rigidized® Metals Corporation, originally Rigid-tex® Corporation, was founded in 1940, its main thrust was to provide deep textured metal for industrial applications. Today, nearly 75 years later, with its third generation of family-owned leadership, Rigidized® Metals Corporation continues to lead the world in the development and production of deep-textured, three dimensional metals, now used in architectural, industrial, and transportation applications.

Rigidized® Metals Corporation understands and can respond to the specific technical and logistical requirements of today's industry. Quality, performance, and responsiveness define the Rigid-Tex®/customer relationship and we know those words have specific meaning to manufacturers and suppliers.

While the range of applications has grown exponentially to include everything from transportation, food processing and elevator panels to restroom partitions, building facades and commercial and residential kitchens and dining, Rigidized® Metals Corporation continues to offer the same great products that originally put us on the map. Our advancements in technology, engineering, and fabrication have led us to differentiate our application offerings and provide more industry-specific brands, bringing the industrial portion of our organization back to its roots with the Rigid-Tex® brand.
