As the turpentine industry became replaced by synthetics, FLAMCO began to diversify its product line. Florida Metal Products Inc. has grown through four generations of family ownership to bring you quality metal roofing products you can rely upon. Our determination, integrity, and desire to bring great products and service to our customers allowed us to sustain over 95 years of change and adversity in the marketplace.
