Frank’s recent visit during our tooling startup went very well. We are glad to have confirmation that many of our standard practices are correct and useful. Thanks, Roll-Kraft!
I have been working for Brasscraft for 38 years. I will be retiring on March 29. Before I leave, I just wanted to say a few words about my experience with Roll-Kraft.
Our company entered the tube mill business about 18 years ago. Before the arrival of our new tube mill equipment, I immediately started to do research to understand the equipment as much possible, learning about how often form rolls wear out and where to send them when they needed reconditioning. I came across the name Roll-Kraft in a magazine.
I called the 800 number and learned that one of their reps was in California at that very time. I gave him a call, and we scheduled an appointment for later that week. To my amazement and appreciation, he cleared some time and arrived at my plant a day early. That’s when I met Shawn Mitchell.
Shawn has been one of my most valuable resources. It has been a pleasure to rely on his experience and Roll-Kraft’s policy of on-time deliveries over many, many years. I thank you sincerely.
We recently had Matt come to our facility to provide training to our newer mill guys. Matt spent three days with us and did a very thorough and detailed job. We have no complaints, whatsoever. We were also very impressed with Matt’s service report, and we are applying his recommendations. We hope to make this training a yearly event to refresh us on the roll form tooling setup and keep good habits in place.

Frank’s visit last week was very beneficial for our operator and maintenance department. He was able to give clarity to the function of the over/under benders to our staff and make corrective adjustments. We appreciate his service.

Thank you Roll Kraft team! I understand the difficulties of moving schedules, orders, etc. Especially during this time of year when you are trying to stay ahead so your folks can enjoy the holidays. Great job and it is appreciated!
I was having issues with my 1.750” and my 1.250” tube sizes with the breathing of the tube. I was getting as much as .015 variance in size. I decided to contact Chicago Roll to see if they could fix the problem. I visited their facility, and they found a workable solution. After redesigning and regrinding the rolls, they were able to get it down to .005. We are now running a great quality tube!
I just want to say, “Great job,” to all involved.
We have broken all of the records for the company in the last 6 months, running over 20,000 metric tons of products each month. We never thought we would get to this point.
We owe much of the success to Wally Mullen and Chicago Roll for the support and delivery, when we needed it the most. We also appreciate the engineering team who continues to improve on designs specific to our needs. Well done, Mike Quintao and Arjana Bebo!
The flowers are great help. Thanks.
All you guys at Roll-Kraft have been so good to me. Really do appreciate the support, education, and talks we have had through the years. Thank you so much. I really do appreciate it.
“I wanted to take a minute to thank the Roll-Kraft team and especially Tim Nahm. He is truly one of the best tube and pipe engineers that I have had the pleasure to work with. He took the time early in the project to get everything right so when the tooling came, all that we had to do was put the tooling on the mill and start running!
Thanks for your help and we look forward to continuing our business relationship”

Roll-Kraft Team –
I called Bret in a mad rush to get new tooling knowing the delivery was going to be tough to meet and Roll-Kraft came through right on time! Bob sent over drawings for approval the same day.
In true Roll-Kraft form, you guys jumped all over this for us and it is greatly appreciated. Please pass on “thank you” to all that was involved.

Appreciation for Excellent Service
I just wanted to drop you a note to express my appreciation for the excellent service that we experienced from your organization recently.
We have received all of our new tooling now….thank you. But I thought it worth mentioning that the individual efforts of people like Frank Lowery and Diane Moyers made the entire process so much easier for us. In fact, I know that we would have had the tooling a lot sooner if it were not for us holding things up.
Both Frank and Diane responded to everything we needed with quick professional courtesy.
Well done! Thanks again.
