About Merit Aluminum
Three generations, extruding since 1974, the Rapport’s have responded to the many changes and challenges in the aluminum extrusion industry. Without these challenges, we would not have made the changes that have brought us to where we are today.
We have close to 3 times more extrusion capacity compared to the day we opened in 1991. Over the years we have added Anodizing and Powder Coating to our offering as well as a precision metal stamping division. We always have plans in the works that will continue to increase the value we provide to each and every one of our customers.
We learned long ago that we are part of an industry that is more comfortable looking at where they have been rather than looking to where they need to go. Fortunately for our customers, we have always had an eye on the future.
Merit Aluminum Inc. is committed to responsible environmental practices that protect our planet. Global warming is the existential threat to humanity. It is everyone’s responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint in their daily lives, and even more so for those that are business owners, no matter what size the business. We cannot rely on governmental intervention as our only means to deal with this threat. As shepherds of our planet, we must take whatever steps necessary, within each of our means, to create a carbon neutral world. To accomplish that, we all have to work together providing the leadership that others will and must follow. Failure to do so, the consequences are unimaginable.
– Mike Rapport, President, Merit Aluminum Inc.
