In 2021, Mt. Lebanon Awning purchased the 112 Extreme.  The 112 Extreme is known for its fast production times as well as its ease of operation and precision control.   With the ability to easily maneuver the material, the Mt. Lebanon Awning team was able to easily manufacture their products, quicker.

They eliminated the need for employees to do multiple things for one item.  Now, their employee can focus on producing a quality product with ease.  

With the reliability of the 112 Extreme, the team has experienced less downtime.  Keeping the Mt. Lebanon team to stay up and running longer.
