We make. You build. They plant.

We believe that as the use of mass timber grows, so does our responsiblity to our planet.  We're looking for partners to build a sustainable future together.

For every project built with our mass timber hardware in North America, we've partnered with the National Forest Foundation to plant trees and regenerate our forests.  Join us in ensuring our industry and plant thrive for future generations of builders.
