COLFAX, WISCONSIN – Timber Technologies LLC has achieved certification by the American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC). |
Certification distinguishes this Glue Laminated Manufacturer from many other manufacturing facilities by providing the highest quality glue laminated beams and columns to the agricultural and commercial markets as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Status as a certified, licensed organization, means Timber Technologies LLC has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of ANSI/AITC A190.
For 60 years, the American Institute of Timber Construction has been the national, technical trade association of the structural glued laminated timber industry. AITC recommended building and design codes for wood-based structures are considered authoritative in the United States building industry. AITC certification will allow Timber Technologies to nationally market its full line of glue laminated products to architects, engineers and commercial contractors.
“We believe our customers deserve the peace of mind that comes from rigorous third party inspection,” stated Tom Niska, Co-Owner of Timber Technologies LLC. “When you see the AITC certification stamp on our products, our customers will know that AITC, an independent, nationally recognized organization, has closely examined our entire facility and procedures, unlike many manufacturers that certify only the finger joint process. It means that we, as an organization, care enough about our end users to strive for the highest level manufacturing process possible.”
The recognition of AITC as the authority in the laminated timber industry, is the direct result of the collaborative efforts of its members in the development and maintenance of today’s industry design and product standards, the establishment of the benchmark industry quality assurance/inspection/grade-mark program and laminated timber research.
AITC represents many glue laminated timber manufacturers in the U.S. in addition to a number of installers, suppliers, sales representatives, engineers, architects, designers, and researchers.
