MiTek Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company based in Chesterfield, Mo., announced the realignment of three brands that provide structural framing solutions to the building industry, including Benson.
Benson Curtain Wall and Benson Glass are among the structural framing building solutions to be included a global design, prefabrication and installation custom solution for glass and curtainwalls. The other two brands being realigned are SidePlate and Ultra-Span.
“Integrating these three former standalone operations into a unified MiTek portfolio of solutions is part of what has been a multi-year journey for us, following a period of acquisitions beginning in 2008,” said Mark Thom, chairman and CEO of MiTek. “We’re excited to further simplify our branding to MiTek, while maximizing how these solutions add value to our customers’ business and the way we help them use off-site means to build better. Our vision and complete focus are to better leverage all our technology and capabilities as MiTek, to further help our partners transform global communities. The need has never been greater for speed and efficiency from design to completion to help meet the rapidly growing demand for smarter, more affordable, and more sustainable homes and buildings. We continue to reshape MiTek to unlock that power.”
Lance Howard, president of Commercial Building Solutions, adds, “Bringing these structural framing solutions together more fully under the MiTek name will give our customers expanded access to new services and software solutions, and further innovations in off-site building that will transform the way the industry designs, makes, and builds. This is a natural next step that will further harmonize our team and solutions within MiTek’s broader technology solutions. In the end, this should help us even better serve as an ally for our partners.”
