SidePlate®, a Berkshire Hathaway company (NYSE: BRK-A, NYSE: BRK-B) that designs innovative steel building connections, today announced that it has doubled its employee base in the last 36 months to accommodate rising demand for its consulting and project-management services. As another indicator of the Company’s dramatic growth, SidePlate’s active projects have more than doubled since July 2010.
Since 1995, when the Company was founded, SidePlate has seen a steady increase in demand for its connection technologies and consulting services, which offer economical solutions for general steel building applications and high-performance seismic and blast-resistant designs. However, in the last three years, SidePlate has seen that demand accelerate at a remarkable rate, as indicated by the recent doubling of its active projects. In 2009, Berkshire Hathaway’s MiTek® acquired SidePlate because of the Company’s sterling reputation, its innovative consulting services and technology, and its potential for the very growth that SidePlate is experiencing today.
“In the last three years, the demand for SidePlate’s connection technologies and consulting services has exceeded our most ambitious goals,” said Henry Gallart, SidePlate’s president. “We’re honored to serve an expanding roster of clients in the construction industry, as our efforts are ultimately in service of the people who live and work in buildings that we’ve helped to make safer and more affordable.”
Acting as a free extension of the design team, SidePlate delivers engineering services for professionals who design, fabricate, and erect steel moment frame and braced frame structures. While providing connection technologies and ongoing support to the engineer, fabricator, contractor, architect, erector, and building owner, SidePlate offers economical solutions for general building applications, as well as for high-performance seismic and blast-resistant designs. Since 1995, SidePlate’s technologies and connections have been proven in real-world and laboratory tests for earthquakes, bomb blasts, and progressive-collapse resistance.
