ICC APPROVES STURDI-WALL BRACKETS
Perma-Column has announced its Sturdi-Wall® and Sturdi-Wall® Plus brackets for post-frame construction have been certified by the International Code Council (ICC) as complying with international building codes. Certification from ICC enables builders to more quickly attain necessary project approvals and permits.
Heavy-duty Sturdi-Wall and Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets connect post-frame structures to traditional concrete foundations such as monolithic slabs, formed walls, and existing concrete pads. They can be paired with foundations already poured (Sturdi-Wall) or while concrete is still wet (Sturdi-Wall Plus).
“This certification confirms we offer the best post-frame bracket in the industry,” said Mark A. Stover, Perma-Column President. “Obtaining an ICC certificate of compliance is not easy. It was two years of hard work requiring significant investments in time, money, people, and resources. This is the best way to ensure the quality of our products and shows our commitment to leading the industry. Builders can work with the assurance that Perma-Column products meet national and international code requirements while consumers can feel more confident in their post-frame investment.”
Perma-Column said that with the certification of Sturdi-Wall, all of the company’s post-frame and deck construction products have achieved ICC approval. “We have the only patented, ICC-approved foundation systems in the post-frame industry,” Stover said. FBN
Ramco Supply Celebrates 20 Years of Metal Manufacturing Excellence
In 2020, Ramco Supply, a leading metal roofing manufacturer and pole barn supplier, celebrates 20 years of providing exemplary service and quality metal roofing and siding products for customers throughout Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois.
Marvin Ramer, founder and owner, began retailing metal roofing and siding in 2000 out of a 40′ x 60′ pole building he had built on his personal property in Rochester, Indiana. The company quickly began to grow, filling orders from customers across northern Indiana. The company has expanded many times and, in 2009, they purchased a 20-acre property to house a new state-of-the-art facility to help meet increased demand. In 2013, Ramco purchased a 10-acre lot in Woodburn, Indiana, and a new facility was erected in 2014.
On reaching such a milestone, Ramer stated, “From our early humble beginnings, I never would have imagined we would grow into the size and type of company we have become today.” Ramer also attributed much of his continued success to his employees and loyal customers. “Our employees are the best at what they do. I thank them for their hard work and dedication. Most importantly, I want to thank our customers for their business and trust.”
With the mission to practice honest business, Ramco Supply’s team is committed to bringing value to their customers, vendors, and community. Visit www.ramcosupply.com fore more information. FBN
