MODERCO Inc. Announces Construction of new Facility to Support Growth
Moderco, an International and 40 year experienced manufacturer of Moveable Wall Systems, today announced plans to construct a new manufacturing facility, beginning the summer of 2021, within the Greater Montreal Area. The new manufacturing plant and corporate offices will be located in the heart of a developing area adjacent to the new Montreal/St. Hubert regional airport. The facility will consolidate into one location the three existing separate plants that are presently required to meet the growing demand for Moderco’s products as experienced over the past few years. In addition, it will provide for the growth of Moderco and the manufacture of new products and features.
“Our Architects and consultants have designed a building and environment wherein our associates will remain central to our success. We will incorporate our 40 years of success and experience in all aspects of the moveable wall industry including robotic assembly, automation, AI, material management, quality and inventory control into one location. Combining the skills of our valued associates with the most current manufacturing methods and equipment available, will allow us to maintain and significantly increase our planned growth” said Stephan Julien, President and CEO of Moderco. “We were extremely fortunate to locate such a nice and well-served location. The location and enhanced operational efficiencies will help us to continue to grow and develop and provide exceptional service and product”.
Jean Martin (JM) Roy, VP of Sales and Marketing commented : “Our entire office area, combined with a sales training and presentation area, will allow us to showcase and demonstrate all of our products. In addition we will have, in partnership with a prominent acoustical engineering company, a fully accredited acoustical testing laboratory where we will be able to quickly sound test all of our planned new products as well as have existing products retested in order to keep current with the most recent test procedures. One of the most pressing problems in our industry is extreme variations throughout a year in product demand. Alleviating delivery problems associated with these variations is an important part of the incorporated manufacturing processes allowing us to keep pace with our client’s needs.”
All at Moderco are looking forward to the relocation to our new facility in the Fall of 2022. For additional information about the new Moderco manufacturing facility, Moderco in general, Moderco products or Moderco distribution please contact email@example.com or call 800.363.3150.

RPC is the new representative for Hollaender in the Houston area.
The Hollaender Manufacturing Company produces a wide array of architectural hand railing systems, from non-welded aluminum rails to stainless steel structural glass.
These hand and guard railing systems meet the IBC and ADA codes. The Hollaender engineering staff can provide delegated design services to demonstrate our compliance, if needed.
Infills are available in a wide variety of materials:
- Resin Panels
- Metal Panels – mesh or perforated
Finishes are available for our hand rails in a wide range of different patterns, colors and textures. Aluminum systems can be anodized with clear and bronze options, or powder coated in almost any color imaginable for your job requirement. Our steel infill panels are produced in the same wide array of colors, but are first e-coated to protect against corrosion.

RPC is pleased to announce a new design tool from Major Industries to assist Architects and Designers.
PRESS RELEASE: NEW WEBSITE TOOL FOR ARCHITECTS/DESIGNERS
With more and more people working remotely and self-sourcing product information, we’re always looking for more convenient ways to provide architects and designers the information they’re looking for, while also allowing us to see which products and materials are being searched and utilized. Because of this, Major recently teamed up with a company called Concora to set up a “Design Studio” link that contains all of our technical information, including drawings and product literature, BIM models and other related information.
The Design Studio is set up in an easy-to-search format where users can filter by all types of parameters (sheet color, glazing material, etc.) and get access to all our data in one spot instead of having to get items piece-by-piece. We’ve added links to the Studio throughout the site, including the home page and product and technical pages, with the hope that in some ways it replaces our typical “tech binder” for most uses, and allows users to find the info they need more quickly. (You can see the page here – https://majorskylights.concora.com/ . Also note that users can still access our technical information the traditional way. )
The tool requires a name and email to access specific info, allowing us to view that information and better understand how our technical information is being used. Architects/designers can also store their own project information in their account, “tagging” us to specific projects which we can then search and follow up on. We’ve also included links to our standard quote form and to the rep network map for easy access to contacts if users have additional questions.

RPC is officially an approved NanaWall installer. This means you get the experience and skill of the RPC installation technicians, partnered with the high quality product of NanaWall. This comes with an extended warranty.
The NanaWall moving glass walls are customizable to meet the requirements of your project. Every moving glass wall system is manufactured for long-term performance, durability, and beauty. As the leader in the industry, we strive to be ever-improving and constantly innovating—you’ll never hear the last of our firsts.
Whether you’re replacing a dilapidated skylight, upgrading the thermal performance of a window/wall system, or simply replacing a storm damaged daylighting system, we have a solution to fit your needs and budge.
Whether it be broken panels or impaired functionality, you may choose to replace your old skylight to gain the enhanced convenience and beauty of our newest generation of products.
- Degradation Affecting Performance
Why suffer through poor light quality and thermal performance? By replacing an old skylight, you can enjoy the modern benefits of increased energy efficiency and better quality of light.
Water intrusion can cause significant damage in your building, be it slow or sudden. Replacing your leaking unit with one of our standard or custom-built skylights will allow you to permanently resolve this issue quickly and easily.
- Wrong Application/Lighting Solution
It’s important to know how to best utilize skylights in your commercial space. When defining the interior of a space, you may find you want to alter or enhance the effect a skylight has by updating it with a different style or new function.
Is It Difficult to Replace Skylights?
We would first set up a site visit to determine the best daylighting product and to examine the curb conditions and dimensions.
Based on the site visit, we will generate a quote and upon your approval, supply submittal drawings.
- Fabrication & Shipping
Once the submittal drawings are approved, we will fabricate any custom products to be shipped to the jobsite or ship a standard product from our inventory.
If you choose RPC as your installation company, we will provide all the necessary equipment to remove & dispose of the old skylights and install the new ones.
No matter what the system, our goal is your satisfaction. From initial quote to manufacture to installation and beyond, our products are only as good as our customer service, and we want to make finding, specifying, ordering and installing our daylighting systems as simple and worry-free as possible.
Combining technology, innovation and industry expertise, VELUX Modular Skylights are revolutionizing commercial daylighting. With an innovative, prefabricated modular design, installation is three-times faster without compromising strength or performance.
The unique, modular design offers intelligent control options for ventilation and fully-integrated roller blinds, all in one slim profile design. Bring light to life with VELUX Modular Skylights.
Test Method for High Velocity Wind-Driven
Rain Resistant Louvers
Did you know that, if located in the Hurricane-Prone Region, all intake and exhaust louvers must comply with AMCA 550 (Test Method for High Velocity Wind Driven Rain Resistant Louvers) per the International Mechanical Code versions 2012 and 2015? The AMCA 550 test standard simulates external wind speeds up to 110 MPH with an external rainfall rate of 8.8 in. per hour. To pass AMCA 550, no more than 1% of the total sprayed water volume may penetrate the louver. If your state has adopted International Building Code 2012 or 2015, now is the time to ensure that all intake and exhaust louver specifications call for an AMCA 550 Listed louver, if located in the Hurricane-Prone Region.
Airolite offers a complete line of AMCA 550 listed louvers, ranging from high performance vertical blade products, dual-module horizontal front/vertical rear louvers and combination louver-dampers that will not only meet the function required, but the form desired.
Louvers with Glazing Adapters
The design of glazing systems with louver infill has become a very popular design choice by architects. Airolite has the ability and flexibility to work within this design request by offering a louver infill with a glazing adapter that allows the louver to be installed directly into the glazing system. There are many different types of glazing systems, and the glazing adapters do not necessarily work with them all. Airolite is happy to promptly review your project details to verify they will work and make the best recommendation for your specific application.
