Your facility’s roof protects a huge percentage of your assets and happens to be home to mission critical systems such as your HVAC, plumbing, electrical and even solar. So when integrating these systems on your roof, it’s vital to make sure all components mesh well while leaving your roof watertight, within code, and maintaining your roof’s warranty.Joel Stanley, our founder and pioneer, recognized this need and began designing a universal anchor that would be a seamless, non-penetrating component of the current roof system while providing the strength and engineering required to keep equipment in place. Fast forward several years – after designing, testing, and consulting with roofing experts around the globe for every environment – that universal anchor, now known as the U-Anchor, was born.

Our story begins in 1890, when Thomas “Whit” Whitaker Rosborough started running his own sawmill. Sixteen years later, Whit Rosborough formed the Caddo River Lumber Company in the aptly-named Rosboro, Arkansas. In 1939, his team migrated to Springfield, Oregon, and opened Rosboro’s first sawmill. Rosboro’s first glulam plant opened in 1963. It was the first in the industry to use several key innovations: ~ Radio frequency beam curing equipment to shorten the processing time, enabling Rosboro to offer glulam as a cost-effective alternative to other floor and roof framing options. ~A continuous pre-glued finger joint allows Rosboro to make long length lamination's. ~ Stress wave machine-graded lumber, which creates stronger and more consistent glulam. Since then, Rosboro has continued its commitment to “Building Better” by using comprehensive information technology services to help create a top-notch customer service experience.
Solving challenges is the very foundation of who we are. after all, in the beginning, sea captain Robert Fergusson didn't particularly care about paint. He just wanted to keep his ship intact. That's why, when he noticed that an accidental splash of fish oil had stopped the relentless spread of corrosion on his rusty metal deck, he immediately recognized it for what it was: A valuable solution. The same passion that drove the Captain to spend his next few years creating the world's first rust-preventative paint still drives us today. When we see a problem, we work diligently until we've perfected a solution- which has led to some of the most cutting-edge, durable and innovative products in the industry. If you've got a surface you need to protect or a look you want to transform, you've come to the right place. We have a coating for every challenge. Welcome to Rust-Oleum, home of trusted quality-and powerful solutions-since 1921.

Stockton Products™ was founded in 1949, in response to construction demand in the Southwestern United States, particularly California. Exterior stucco applications were popular and widespread. Recognizing the need to provide a framework around which stucco could be applied and keep it from cracking at stress points, a welded wire corner was developed that met that construction need. It was known as Corneraid®, and quickly became and remains the industry standard. Since then, a variety of welded wire products have been developed that save time, while maximizing stucco adherence to the wire-reinforced exterior. In addition, certain welded wire drywall related products are also available.
