In an attempt to set itself apart from competitors, pontoon manufacturers have always looked for advantages to improve the look and feel of its boats. The latest wave to hit this niche market-colored aluminum panel rails for your pontoon.

For decades consumers really had only two choices when it came to rail panels: white and off-white. But one of the latest trends that is catching on quickly is the visual appeal of colored panels that can be color-coordinated to match interiors.

Aluminum Metal CO, LLC., located in Elkhart, Ind., has experienced tremendous growth with the colored panel phenomena, especially in the last few years. Colored panels continue to be a hot topic of discussion in the design rooms of major pontoon builders, which led to AMC recently purchasing state-of-the-art equipment to heighten its ability in servicing this growing market.

"We want to be the industry leader in supplying our customers with innovative products to assist them in being successful," says AMC President J. Hess. "With our ability to color match any color, we can give the manufacturers an endless variety to choose from. The only limit is their imagination."

AMC also has an extrusion warehouse which services a wide variety of extrusion needs, ranging from custom to standard shapes. These are available in numerous finishes including, but not limited to, painted, anodized and mill finish. Specialty shapes are also available upon request.
