The Trussway Difference

Trussway was founded in 1972 by Dick Rotto on the simple, yet powerful principle of high intensity customer service, from beginning to endThis is The Trussway Difference and is what drives our nearly 1,000 employees to this very day.

It starts with our salespeople who build and nurture consultative, trusting relationships with customers. We then implement our proprietary project management protocol and engage our network of domestic and international designers who take a “whole project” approach to ensure that our trusses deliver as expected—to maximize open space, minimize noise, optimize deflection, and accommodate mechanicals.

From there, we make and deliver products from any of our six manufacturing locations—on time and as you need it, no excuses.  And, we’re right there on the job site with you to anticipate the unexpected and resolve issues should they arise.

When a project is completed, you don’t see our trusses.  And, you certainly don’t want to hear them.  And, if they’re not done right, you will hear about it from your tenants and we’ll expect to hear from you.

Our promise is simple: we sell, design and manufacture the best pre-fabricated wood framing components in the building industry. We leverage nearly a half century of expertise, from project conception to completion, to help ensure your builds are accurate, on time, and of high quality. Together, WE deliver living spaces that are quiet, long lasting, safe and comfortable.

This is The Trussway Difference.
