The extensive use of precast concrete continues to be widely adopted between engineers and architects who are looking to its structural durability, versatile applications, and modular compositions. With any level of construction, safety is above all else the most important for the over at MAX USA team and its customers. MAX USA Corp. has been and continues to support our end-users who operate in these plants with the latest tools, guidance, and training to carry out profitable and safe work.
One nationwide precast plant has been utilizing MAX rebar tying tools for the past several years across all their divisions because of the increase in productivity they experience using the products. Recently, Production Manager, Curtis S. integrated the Stand-Up RB401T-E tool for his construction activities.
We have over 70 people tying rebar each day with 50% of it being slab work, so the areas where we can use the RB401T-E for those applications, we provide it to our guys. We have a gentleman who is over 65 years of age who can efficiently and safely carryout work. It’s been a great solution for us by helping to reduce project cost and increase our productivity safely.”
