Sobotec was founded in 1988 with a vision to produce the best modern wall panel systems available. That vision, coupled with a strong engineering background and a commitment to innovation, led Sobotec to become the first company worldwide to design and develop a Rainscreen Wall Panel System (SL-2000) for the metal composite material (MCM) ALUCOBOND®. Sobotec’s innovation transformed the industry with the SL-2000 system, widely expanding the use of MCM material all across North America.
Today, Sobotec is North America’s largest processor of metal composite panel systems, producing over 2,000,000 sq. ft. annually. Celebrating 35 years as an industry leader and pioneer, Sobotec’s vision and commitment to innovation continues to lead the industry.

Sobotec has not only helped shape the architectural panel industry, we set the standard for it.

We are also North America’s largest fabricator of metal composites and one of the largest manufacturers of engineered panel systems.
Concept to completion is a phrase seldom heard in the architectural wall systems industry. Yet at Sobotec, it is one of the characteristics that has distinguished us as an industry leader.
