Trachte Building Systems, Inc. Acquires Tech-Fast Brand

Trachte Building Systems has purchased the assets of the Tacoma Washington based self-storage manaufacturer Tech-Fast.

Sun Prairie, WI, February 20, 2010 --( Trachte Building Systems, Inc. acquired the Tech-Fast brand from founders Dave Cook and Mark Duncan on February 3rd.

Established in 1901, Trachte’s fabricated steel products have historically dominated their respective markets and currently offers a comprehensive line of turn-key Self-Storage Building solutions, Roll Up Doors, Micro Units, Partition Systems and Portable Storage Units. Tech-Fast has been in business since 1989, and has supplied and/or built thousands of buildings in North America.

By purchasing the Tech-Fast’s brand, plans and designs, Trachte Building Systems will be structured to serve the needs of former and prospective Tech-Fast customers. “I’m pleased that we were able to put together this arrangement with Trachte to continue to serve our customers. I’m confident that they will be in good hands with the crew at Trachte,” commented Cook. Self-storage developers will now be able to select from Trachte’s traditional building systems or seamlessly opt for a Tech-Fast building design.

Trachte National Sales Manager Jamie Lindau is excited about the opportunity and looks forward to meeting and working with Tech-Fast’s customer base. “Tech-Fast has a history of offering their customers not only basic single story buildings, but also a very impressive portfolio of attractive multi-story projects. The acquisition of Tech-Fast, will serve to further expand Trachte’s already extensive product portfolio while increasing market penetration in the Western United States and Canada. This move is an important step in implementing Trachte’s long term strategic growth plan of product, capabilities and market expansions. This is a step towards industry consolidation; we are currently looking at other acquisitions as well.”
