Manufacturing Process

Manufacturing for Wood Construction

Our value engineering process optimizes design, using minimal material for maximum performance.
  • R&D engineers focus on material efficiencies and innovative features to minimize waste in our steel connector, anchor and fastener designs.
  • Our value engineering process optimizes design, using minimal material for maximum performance.
  • Lean processes at our manufacturing plants help to reduce waste and improve production efficiencies.
  • Energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems further reduce our impact on the environment.

Manufacturing for Concrete Construction

  • Our Repair, Protect and Strengthen (RPS) group of products are used to rehabilitate and reinforce infrastructure, commercial and industrial projects. This reduces the need for complete demolition and removal of deteriorated materials to landfills.
  • Our RPS products contribute to the longevity and sustainability of the projects on which they are used.
  • Some of the raw materials used in these products contain chemicals that are hazardous. After fabrication, these chemicals are inert and are no longer reactive.
  • We have initiated a program to develop Globally Harmonized System (GHS)-compliant Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all products to increase transparency about product content and their effect on people and the environment.
  • Our European plants have GHS-SDS in place. This GHS-SDS process will help us better evaluate our product lines to further ensure they are suitable for the environments in which they are installed.
