Our quality policy

Helping people build a secure and cost-effective designs. If we want to achieve this, we design and manufacture products that meet the needs and expectations of our customers and sometimes even beyond. All employees are responsible for product quality and compliance with the quality management system.

Our environmental policy

Each employee Simpson Strong-Tie® trying to reduce the impact of business activities on the environment, and promises that it will prevent pollution.

Thanks to the right technology implemented in our plants before and after sorting recyclables we have 95% of the waste produced in 2013. Simpson Strong-Tie® increases after 6 years the share of safe industrial waste (DIB) by 30% and dangerous products (DIS) fell by 50%.
 

Energy management
