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!
