"It is exciting times for Synergy Steel" www.synergysteelcorp.com , Michael Iagnemma – President said. Synergy Steel provides solutions to the housing and construction industry through the collaboration of light gauge steel manufacturing and innovative framing and panelization techniques. Synergy Steel’s process of utilizing 3D modeling software to construct engineered products provides a solution to the industry’s rising construction costs and skilled labor shortage.
Synergy Steel just commissioned their first Howick Frama 3200 machine which will be one of many Howick technologies to come over the next year. Synergy Steel will manufacture steel studs, engineered floor and roof trusses and wall panels which will be panelized before leaving the facility.
Mr. Iagnemma was and is a middle-sized builder that has built everywhere from first time home buyers to large custom homes in the Charlotte, NC area. Mr. Iagnemma and his leadership team had discussed for some time wanting to automate construction. They wanted more effective building materials and processes that would complement important factors; such as, skilled labor shortage that we all face today, time constraints and more durable products that have several advantages through the complete building life-cycle including warranty.
Synergy Steel’s 32,000 sq./ft. facility is in Lancaster, South Carolina and sits on 11 prime acres with the ability to build another 32,000 sq./ft. facility. Already, Synergy has taken orders for over 450 homes and is in numerous discussions on several multi-family and hotel projects.
