“Direct Gutters operates only KWM Ironman machines. We standardized on the Ironman because of its reliability and durability. Encompassing nine years and 10 Ironman machines, our experience with KWM Gutterman has been ideal. I am looking forward to another 10 years in partnership with Ken, Keith and their team.”

As of Friday, December 29, 2017, KWM will no longer make Panther 5" & 6" machines. If you own or plan to purchase a Panther machine before the year's end, know that it is still fully covered by KWM's Rock Solid Guarantee. And we will still keep inventory of Panther parts to service machines.
Panther was the first roll forming machine KWM built, so it was a challenging decision to discontinue it. But customers have noticed that our IronMan line—currently 9 machines with 34 gutter profiles—is more advanced, lighter in weight, and less expensive. So to respond to demand, we need to adjust our production to best fulfill customer needs.
Thank you for trusting KWM—we look forward to working with you for many more years to come!
KWM Gutterman is excited to unveil our 15,000 square foot assembly plant! We will be moved in and fully operational by the end of summer 2016. More room will allow us to keep up with your production demands. We would like to thank our loyal customers for their continued support to make this possible.
In addition to the 5 1/2" Fascia gutter machine, KWM now offers their standard Fascia machine in a 4 1/2" configuration. Recommended materials for both configurations are as follows...
