"OUR TOOLS SAVE LIVES." These words are printed on an 8-foot sign in our manufacturing facility in Elmira, NY as a reminder of what rides on our products. Our employees, many of whom have served as volunteer responders, know the importance of the products we produce, and this shows in all we do. We build each rescue strut by hand in our shop, from proven and predictable materials. From hand-welds to high-end machining, all of our struts are built with care, and inspected and tested to ensure years of performance in the field.
