MiTek® has Acquired SidePlate® Systems, Inc.
 
We are pleased to announce that MiTek has acquired SidePlate Systems, Inc., a company based in Laguna Hills, CA.  SidePlate is an innovator of proprietary high-performance steel frame connection technologies used in a wide range of construction applications.  The SidePlate technology and products were developed in direct response to the devastation caused by the 1994 Northridge earthquake.  Their award-winning products are designed to protect structures against natural and manmade disasters, including blast attacks and progressive collapse load conditions.  In addition, construction companies using SidePlate technology and products experience a decrease in construction time, lower costs and are using products that help preserve the environment.  More information on SidePlate can be found on their website at http:/www.sideplate.com.

SidePlate will operate as a separate company reporting to Maged Diab.  All SidePlate associates will remain with the company.  David Houghton will continue to serve as CEO, along with Henry Gallart, Garry Myers, and Jared Adams remaining as President, Executive Vice President, and Senior Vice President, respectively. 

We are delighted to welcome SidePlate Systems, Inc. to the MiTek family.  If you have questions regarding SidePlate please feel free to contact Maged Diab or Ron Burkhardt.

Best regards,
