Continental Materials, Inc. was established in 1958, specializing in the importation of nails and aluminum products to the U.S. market from overseas sources. Our commitment to QUALITY, SERVICE and VALUE was established long ago.

The current management team, led by Peter Fischer came into place in 1984, and has devoted the full resources of CMI to developing the Continental brand along a complete line of roofing and building components.

Commercial Products

Leaders in the supply of BUR asphalt with our well recognized flag logo cartons, CMI is one of nation's largest suppliers of asphalt to support roofing projects nationwide. To support this growth we have made significant investments in our patented "No-Smell™" asphalt technology making the asphalt odor virtually undetectable to workers, building occupants and neighbors. All CMI asphalt is available with this No-Smell™ formulation and additional investments in Weather-Seal™ packaging have provided our customers the best packaged material for distributor yard and jobsite storage in the market today.

CMI is one of North America's largest suppliers of fiberboard products for roofing and other industrial and construction applications. Material is shipped from two manufacturing facilities and numerous strategic reload centers servicing the entire US market and shipping to Canada and Mexico, too.

Residential Products

Residential roofing is a large part of CMI today with two strategic shipping points in North America shipping Continental organic roofing products; quality underlayments are available nationwide to support our customers wherever they may need saturated felt products.

Pioneers in the importation of generic coil and bulk roofing nails, Continental nails have been in the market place for over 50 years, with millions of quality boxes delivered. To support this business we have invested in the Continental/Qingdao nail factory in Qingdao, China. Today, with our on-the-ground presence in the Far East, we import over 1,000 containers per year of nails, fasteners and construction staples from countries including China, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Dubai.

Moving Forward

As we begin the next 50 years, Continental is poised for long-term growth. CMI will continue to use its resources to search the globe to develop products and find value for our customers, business partners and for the roofing and building materials industry. CMI is committed to forming strategic alliances with manufacturers worldwide that can see the benefit of utilizing our superior sales and marketing organization, credit facility, financial capability, and logistics expertise.
