Simpson Strong-Tie Company Inc. Acquires Ready Products and Radius Tools from Radius Track Corporation
Simpson Strong-Tie, a Pleasanton, Calif., manufacturer of engineered structural connectors and building solutions and a subsidiary of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc., has acquired the Ready Products (Ready-Hat®, Ready-Track®, Ready-Arch® and Ready-Angle®) and Radius Tools (Radius Track Bender® and Radius Trim Bender™) from Radius Track Corporation headquartered in Minneapolis.
The strategic acquisition is expected to help Simpson Strong-Tie expand its offering of solutions for cold-formed steel construction. Radius Track Corporation will continue as its own separate entity focused on the design, engineering and fabrication of sub-systems for curved and complex services, both preconstruction and post-contract award.
The Ready Products are hand-bendable curved framing solutions for light-gauge steel framing invented by Radius Track owner Chuck Mears and introduced to the market in 2004. Radius Track was founded in 1997 to distribute these tools.
