How we got our start:

In 1989 QE was founded in a garage.

The mission back then was simple:

Make the best drip edge in the world and blow the customers mind by shipping it within 72 hours.

QE raised the bar on the entire industry when it committed to manufacturing and delivering metal building products within 72 hours. When we began, the competition’s lead times were 4-6 weeks.

Today we’ve grown to three locations.

We now ship to customers nationwide.

We are unique from everyone else in our industry in that we offer more than just products—we offer the selling tools and systems required to sell our products, at both the contractor and homeowner point of sale.

We remember our roots.

It keeps us grounded.

Our headquarters remain in Walker, Michigan, just outside Grand Rapids – about 30 miles from the natural wonder of Lake Michigan. The area’s economy maintains a strong manufacturing base, while thriving and growing in new directions. Today many people know Grand Rapids as Beer City USA for its collection of craft breweries and events. Others know it as the location of the international ArtPrize competition each fall. But we still remember our roots – and that garage.
