CHESTERFIELD, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MiTek USA, a leading manufacturer of code-approved structural connectors, developer of software tools for structural design and product selection, and distributor of anchors, epoxy, tools, and safety equipment, today announced that it will expand manufacturing of its USP Structural Connectors line at its facility in Phoenix, AZ, and relocate its current Livermore, CA operations into a new state-of-the-art distribution and manufacturing facility in Tracy, CA.
MiTek’s acquisition of USP has generated continuous growth in sales and market share, and proven to be a strong addition to MiTek’s broad range of products, software, and services. This success has resulted in additional investments in capital, capabilities, and personnel to grow the business as the pace of housing starts increases.
