Coldwater Rolls, Inc ( CRI ) has the knowledge, experience, and assets to save your paper mill substantial dollars in operating cost. We are a "One Stop Service" for high quality paper machine rollers. Our General Manager, Charles ( Charlie ) Rhoads, has near thirty years experience in the paper industry. Most of that time was directed toward paper machine rollers in the process required to manufacture, remanufacture ( repair ) and cover rollers. He was employed by Beloit Corp. in the 1970's. He joined the organization to implement the "One Stop Service" centers. Charlie went on his own in the late 1980's developing suction seal material to replace Eelslip containing asbestos. Concurrent with the suction seal material Charlie founded Mill Roll Service Corp. and implemented many improvements in manufacturing, remanufacturing and covering paper machine rollers. Charlie was a cofounder of Coldwater Group. The CWG marketed urethane covering equipment and suction seal material and owned Coldwater Seals, Coldwater Covers and Coldwater Resins with direct sales of suction seals and deckles. In 1997 Charlie rolled Mill Roll Service into Coldwater Group as Coldwater Covers, Inc. For the next five years he prodded, criticized, complemented, checked on and insisted that Coldwater Covers develop high quality attitudes, workmanship and concern for the customer. In 2003 Charlie sold his half interest in Coldwater Group to David Withers. In 2006 Coldwater Group sold Coldwater Covers to Stowe Woodward. Stowe closed the service center in 2007 leaving high quality, experienced talent available in the Anniston, Oxford geographical area. The Paper Manufacturing Industry cannot afford to lose this technical experience and knowledge. CRI in Anniston, Alabama has opened a "One Stop Service center, " to use this available talent. Our first offering is a polyurethane roller cover and of course any metal work required to remanufacture the roller. A CRI polyurethane roller cover can be used in almost any un-nipped position in the paper machine. Our covers are ideally suited for the wet end of the paper machine as well as reel spool applications. We cover breast, drive, wire, guide, table, turning and other rollers.
