Truss History


How long has the truss industry been around and where did it start?


The invention of the first metal truss connector plate in Florida in 1952 by A. Carroll Sanford (founder of Sanford Industries in Pompano Beach, Florida) marked the beginning of the industry that in just four decades has vastly changed home, apartment and commercial building construction.
