Tucson, AZ, March 10, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- StrongHold Basement’s parent company, HJ3 Composite Technologies, will be expanding operations in a new state of the art facility in March 2011. The company's carbon fiber and polymer products will soon be produced and assembled in its new 20,000 square foot facility, located just off of Interstate-10 in Tucson, Arizona.
The move comes at a great time for HJ3, who is rapidly expanding in size. For the last couple of years, HJ3 has been growing its client base steadily with the increase in the number of Certified StrongHold Dealers it has trained across the country to prescribe and install carbon fiber repair systems for residential homes. Thus far, this dealer network is responsible for over 5,000 basement wall and floor repairs using StrongHold repair products.
HJ3’s new facility will allow for manufacturing, packaging, engineering support, marketing, training, testing, sales and account management to all be under one roof. “Production capacity of StrongHold products and the assembly of its pre-engineered reinforcement kits will double to meet the needs of the expanding StrongHold dealer network,” states HJ3 CEO Jim Butler. “The pre-engineered StrongHold kits make basement wall or floor repair easier and faster for dealers, which homeowners appreciate, and allows dealers to complete more repairs per day with their existing crews.”
In addition to StrongHold, HJ3 is the parent company to CarbonSeal, for industrial repairs of concrete and steel, and BlastSeal, for blast protection. The kits HJ3 produces for each StrongHold, CarbonSeal and BlastSeal are created with the end result and the user in mind. Certified contractors are trained to install each branded kit that is specific to their market focus, while relying on continuous field support from HJ3’s engineering team. Offering exceptional contractor support allows HJ3 installers to quickly adopt these branded kits into their business With the new facility, HJ3 plans to provide in-house training classes for its certified contractor network as well as design training for interested consulting engineers.
