Gibraltar Industries Expands Transportation Operations With Ryder to Include Three Additional Subsidiaries

August 1, 2006

MIAMI – Gibraltar Industries, Inc. — a manufacturer, processor, and distributor of metals for the building, vehicular, and industrial markets — has expanded its transportation contract with Ryder and has added dedicated contract carriage services for three Gibraltar subsidiaries: Appleton Supply Co., Inc., Southeastern Metals Company/SEMCO, and DOT Metal Products, Inc. Ryder has provided full-service leasing for Gibraltar since 2004.“We needed a national transportation provider that could leverage our network of multiple divisions and drive efficiencies throughout our supply chain,” said John Wagner, VP of supply chain management for Gibraltar Industries. Additionally, Ryder will be co-located at Appleton Supply Co., Inc.’s manufacturing facility in Appleton, Wis., and Southeastern Metals Company’s manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Fla., to manage and consolidate less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments into multi-stop truckloads and fill backhaul lanes through Ryder’s Transportation Management Center.
