Alpine, an industry leading provider of products and services for building component manufacturers is proudly celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

The company’s plan to build strong customer relationships and provide industry leading goods and services has proved to be quite successful over the last half century. In its first year, Alpine created 300 individual truss designs for customers. Today Alpine produces more than 5 million engineered drawings annually and is a full-service supplier of connector plates, hardware, engineering services, manufacturing equipment and building component design software.

Alpine managers attribute the brands continuing success to the innovations developed as a result of the business partnerships it forms with every customer. Advances from Alpine in the last fifty years include a series of ever-improving connectors and hardware; the revolutionary TrusSteel system; ground breaking equipment including the original roller press, RAM System, AutoSet Jigging, AutoMill, and the ALS; constant advances in engineering; as well as numerous productivity-enhancing software programs. Alpine now works with customers and all other ITW construction brands to continue to innovate on a larger scale as part of the ITW Residential Design Center.

Alpine’s current marketing theme “Honor the past and designing for the future” pays tribute to the people, products, and innovations of the past fifty years, and points to fanatical customer-driven advances already in the plans for the next 50 years.
