In 2017, Metform International Ltd., a member of The Bradbury Group of companies, produced numerous advanced sets of roll form tooling for the automotive industry; some of which were for the all new, redesigned GM truck.  As stated in the article from Motor Authority, GM is incorporating a high percentage of Ultra High Strength Steels in their new truck to shed a large amount of weight. Metform has played a key role in the production of these frame components.
