Protean Construction Products, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Minnesota on September 01, 1989. Protean was established to engage in the manufacture and installation of Architectural Metal Cladding Systems custom manufactured for commercial building construction. The principal laminated products were 1" and 2" insulated and honeycomb exterior wall panels and sunscreens. The principal aluminum plate products were 1" and 2" thick exterior wall panels, curtainwall panels, and column covers.

Over the years Protean moved away from installation and has focused primarily on the manufacturing of metal wall panels, sunscreens and column covers. Demonstrating proven product experience since 1989, we focus on custom fabricated systems specifically designed to meet the ever changing needs of the design community. Protean has also expanded our product line to include fabricated aluminum composite materials (ACM) as well as extruded sunscreens.

Protean has developed a full service staff including sales, technical support, drafting, product engineering, project management, and production to ensure proper material selection and design, quality fabrication and prompt delivery. Our experienced design staff and our unique manufacturing processes, allow us to produce a wide variety of flexible panel systems at competitive prices. Each system produced to standard details offers flexibility to meet the specific needs of the individual project. This allows Protean to offer our customers a wide variety of panel systems, with varying modules, thicknesses, metal substrates and wide array of finishes. All delivered within a very reasonable time schedule.

Protean offers a single source of responsibility to our customers including custom designed panel systems, engineering, detailing, and custom fabrication. Our staff works closely with the architect and contractor on every project to offer creative design solutions, technical support and to insure proper system installation.

“We received our products on time, they were packaged well, shipping was well coordinated, and the panels and column covers fit without any modification. It really does not get any better than that.”
