Strong Man Wraps Itself In a New Name

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J. – Strong Man, supplier of debris netting and weather enclosure products, is taking on a new name. Established in 1974 as Strong Man Building Products Corporation, the family owned company is celebrating 40 successful years in the industry with a name change that reflects the core of their business. Effective July 27, Strong Man Building Products will now be known as Strong Man Safety Products.

“It’s a seemingly small change,” notes Strong Man Founder Jay Kinder. “But the fact is, we’re not just in the debris netting business. We’re in the business of selling safety. That’s true whether it involves keeping workers safe on the job site or pedestrians passing in the streets below, or even protecting buildings and equipment. When people in the business think Strong Man, they think ‘safety,’ and we wanted our name to reflect that.”

Benefits of Prefabrication Proven in New Study

Construction of the new $623-million, 831,000-square-foot Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado is scheduled to be completed this month--nearly 2.5 months earlier than normal—thanks in part to the construction technology of prefabrication. The practice and growing trend of designing and assembling components of a building off-site prior to delivery and installation was a key driver in meeting the regulatory need of having the new hospital open and operational by December 2014. Mortenson now has released a new study on the project that proves how this evolution of construction can pay big dividends to customers today.
