Johnson Brothers Metal Forming was started in 1947 by Edwin Johnson Sr. in Illinois. The company's operations are now directed by Edwin's grandson, Vice President/General Manager Brad Johnson, whose 33 years of roll forming experience have contributed to the ongoing success of this company. Johnson Brothers remains at the forefront of the metal forming industry by paying close attention to the evolution of roll forming technology and the ever changing needs of their customers.
The article in the The Fabricator stressed Johnson Brothers' capacity to offer a variety of precision fabrication options for metal forming through advancements in equipment and a highly skilled and well trained staff. In the article, VP/General Manager Brad Johnson states that "Key people, especially with the design capabilities, are important. Not just the guy that sits in the office, but he's in the shop as well. Those are the types of people that can make or break a company's ability to produce complex roll forming" (p. 53).
The company has expanded from just three roll forming lines in the 1980's to 20 lines and over 35,000 sq ft. of production space by 2011.
