CEMCO Research and Development


CEMCO's Research & Development Division has a team of highly motivated engineers and test technicians whose mission is to develop new products for the building and construction industry using light gauge steel. By nurturing innovative ideas, CEMCO R&D focuses its efforts in achieving solutions for improved cost effectiveness, functionality, strength and ease of construction. We are known for our concise and efficient approach to innovation.

We develop framing members (joists, studs, tracks, etc.); structural systems (shear wall, panels, etc.); as well as accessories (lath, furring channels, joints, beads, etc.). Before they are commercially available, new products and systems are evaluated and certified by international organizations, such as the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO) and the International Code Council (ICC).
