“We would be remiss not to acknowledge the importance of today’s technological tools, particularly with regard to the role that search engines and social media play in the ability to target our customer-base.   In addition to providing the best, customized products, it’s also important for us to provide a user-friendly platform for contractors and engineers.” platform features include:

  • Three-minute informational video
  • Company blog and news section
  • Highlights section with high-resolution product and application images
  • Digital “capabilities” chart and “standard shapes” catalog
