In April of 2012, fabricators at Bestworth-Rommel constructed several arched entries out of ALPOLIC metal composite material (MCM) panels to be featured at the entrances of multiple GMC Buick dealerships. As part of ALPOLIC and GMC’s nationwide program, Bestworth-Rommel internally engineered and designed the entryways in accordance with the dealerships’ intended uniform appearance.

For a number of locations around the country, these entryways arrived as part of a retrofitting initiative in which older dealerships were redesigned to suit the consistency in branding. One advantage to retrofitting a project, as opposed to a complete teardown and rebuild, is that fewer resources are utilized, thereby making the project efficient and more environmentally friendly. Use of ALPOLIC in a retrofit may also yield a quicker turnaround time for the build, as well as save money in the long run. Learn more about the advantages of retrofitting with ALPOLIC.

The entry at the Lynnwood, WA location, which stands 18 ft. high by 40 ft. wide, arrived at the dealership in 3 pieces of curved MCM. The ALPOLIC panels were attached to each segment using a route and return system, and then each section was directly applied to the frame. Each arch features several ALPOLIC finishes, including HLZ Hairline Aluminum, HPA High Polished Aluminum, TBL Black, and RVW White.

Thanks to MCM’s ease of use, fabrication of the various entries was done quickly and efficiently, with one job taking as little as two hours. Additionally, as noted by the fabricators, the advantages gained specifically from the use of ALPOLIC included the exceptional service, availability, and one of the best warranties in the industry.

Through ALPOLIC’s Corporate ID program, some of the best known brands in the United States, from automotive dealerships to retailers to restaurants, can design new exterior concepts with our precision color MCM. The superior flatness and consistency in brand colors of our products can help enhance curb appeal and brand recognition, and in turn create a comfortable shopping or hospitality experience for customers.
