EP 32: Stroder & Overholtzer Discuss Benefits of Supplier-CM-Framer Partnership

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Steve Stroder and Shawn Overholtzer share how California TrusFrame (CTF) is partnering with their plate supplier and a framing contractor to solve the growing challenge of shear walls in large, wood-framed buildings. Steve and Shawn explain how partnering with MiTek to incorporate their cold-formed steel picture frame product into CTF’s wall panel line has proved to be a win-win solution for field installation. They argue that component manufacturers should take greater advantage of supplier products to design and manufacture even more valuable framing solutions.
