Considered a leader in structural systems research, testing and innovation, Simpson Strong-Tie® products are recognised for helping structures resist high winds, hurricanes and seismic forces.
Simpson Strong-Tie is one of the largest suppliers of structural building products in the world, including timber connectors, fasteners, fastening systems, anchors and lateral-force resisting systems. The company is known for its commitment to product development, engineering, testing and training as well as providing customers with quality products and exceptional service. Today, Simpson Strong-Tie has more than 2,600 employees and more than 30 factories, offices and warehouses all around the globe.
Simpson Strong-Tie began manufacturing engineered structural connectors for timber-framed construction in 1956 in California, USA. Nearly 40 years later, the company entered the anchoring industry, and the product line has expanded to include many anchoring, crack-injection repair and masonary adhesives, and a full line of powder-actuated tools and fasteners.
In 2004, Simpson Strong-Tie acquired Quik Drive® fastening systems, a company based in Gallatin, Tennessee, USA. Quik Drive operated in New Zealand prior to the acquisition and has since continued to distribute a wide range of Simpson Strong-Tie products throughout the country. This range now includes fasteners, mechanical and chemical anchors, powder-actuated tools and connectors. The Simpson Strong-Tie sales team in the North and South Islands is equipped with technical support and training to assist with specification and jobsite support to service the needs of customers.
