“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.”
Gary Kulp, President
KWM is excited to share the latest on our expansion for our fabrication facility opening early 2021 located at 801 S Larkin Ave, Rockdale, IL 60436.
KWM has continued to operate a safe and healthy work environment without impacting production during the Covid-19 outbreak. Although some manufacturers have had to close or scale back production significantly, we've been able to fulfill orders in a timely fashion because the entire KWM product line is manufactured in-house.
Our production lead time is currently about 6 weeks due to the highest demand we have ever seen, but we're doing our best to tighten the lead time when possible. KWM will never compromise our stringent production standards for speed. Crafting the highest quality roll forming products for our customers remains our top priority.
Thank you for your continued support.
Our thoughts go out to all who have been affected by this unprecedented Covid-19 outbreak.
KWM is fully committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for its employees, customers and the community.
KWM is actively implementing all recommendations and guidelines set forth by various public health authorities including the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local authorities. We have asked employees to practice social distancing, thorough hand washing and sanitizing, avoid touching their face, stay home when sick and disinfect workstations and frequently touched surfaces.
Sales, Distribution, Technical Support (via phone call) & Administration are running without any limitations. You may reach all your normal contacts at KWM via phone and email as usual.
We thank you for your support and are committed to providing you the best customer service. Stay safe!
Due to the rising cost of materials, prices for all machines and machine packages will increase 5% effective March 1, 2020.

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!
Hanger Mark is an add on accessory for any IronMan K-style machine. It makes an indentation on the inside back of the gutter every 8" to indicate where to place your hangers. Patent Pending.
Hanger Mark is now available for purchase for any new or used IronMan K-style profile machine.
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...
