THE BERRIDGE TOTAL PROGRAM
By the early nineties it was evident that Berridge roof panels and their corresponding portable roll formers presented an outstanding opportunity for contractors to market site-formed roofing panels in both commercial and residential markets. In order to respond to this expanding demand, Berridge introduced its Licensee Program in 1992. Under the new Licensee program, Berridge began to sell or long-term lease many of its main line of portable roll formers. Machine owners, along with Long-term lessees, became referred to as “Licensees”. Along with the substantial benefits of being a Licensee which are described below, Berridge Licensees agree to the exclusive use of Berridge coil and accessories for the particular portable roll former which they own or lease. This is necessary in order for Berridge to fully support products manufactured by its Licensees. Although Berridge Licensees who long-term lease rather than purchase a Berridge portable roll former will receive the majority of the benefits of the Licensee Program, machine owners do have certain exclusive unique benefits and advantages as listed below.
While various manufacturers offer metal panels, only Berridge can provide your company with all architectural metal products from one convenient source. For Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors, the Berridge Total Program is a single-source solution designed to streamline your business and increase profitability.
