The company's product portfolio includes premium pile weatherseals and extruded seals for windows and doors, and various specialty products for applications outside the fenestration industry. Ultrafab’s extensive vertical integration and experience in the design and manufacture of seal production equipment make the company a high-performing and flexible partner for customers worldwide.
Ultrafab and Roto: a "perfect match"
Marcus Sander, CEO of Roto Frank Window and Door Technology, feels that Roto's appeal as a partner to U.S. window and door fabricators will be enhanced through the integration of Ultrafab.
"You could say the combination of Ultrafab and Roto is a 'perfect match'," Sanders says.

Customers will see more benefits as a result of this acquisition."
