    Our Story.  Well, it took us 2 1/2 years but we found a home for our aluminum box truss.  When we tell companies we will find a 2nd home for their castoffs, we are committed to finding the "repurpose" no matter how long it takes!

    BEFORE:  With this big box truss, the Missouri DOT thought there was a higher and better use for this box truss that simply melting it down at a scrap recycler.  We absolutely agreed and did a deal for it. 

    AFTER:  We sold the 66' box truss to a drag racing track in Michigan to use at their drag strip.  Bill, we appreciate your business!
