Steel Trusses & Light Gauge Metal Trusses

February 2015

Dear Valued Customers,

Since 2000, Reliable Truss and Components has been a proud manufacturer of Light Gauge Metal (LGM) trusses using material supplied by Alpine TrusSteel®. It has been a solid product line for us over the years. Our customers have been very pleased with the service, quality and knowledge we have provided and your repeat business validates that. We are proud of the effort of our technical support, factory and shipping teams who have all contributed greatly to our high level of performance.

However, as part of our overall strategic plan, we have made the difficult decision that we will no longer manufacture LGM trusses and instead will concentrate exclusively on our wood products. We will continue to accept orders for quotes that have not expired, with the requirement that the product must ship within the next 60 days. Expired quotes will no longer be updated nor accepted.

To help those of you that are in need of a new LGM truss manufacturer, I would like to recommend American Panel Tec, the largest fabricator in the Northeast. They also manufacture their LGM trusses using the Alpine TrusSteel® product line and deliver a high quality product and top notch support. They are well respected in the industry and have the capacity to handle your business. Please reach out to John Traversone using the information here:

Now more than ever, the Reliable Truss team is committed to your wood truss and prefabricated component needs. In the past 12 months we have added more than $1.5 million worth of new equipment in the factory, have put on the road a number of new trucks, and have done over $200,000 in additional facility improvements and renovations. These investments were made in order to better service and supply our several thousand customers who use wood to frame everything from sheds to 300K SF apartment complexes. We can offer the use of varied species with different strengths (KD SPF, SYP, DF) as well as a number of treatments (P.T. and F.T.) and FSC lumber in manufacturing the components for your project. We supply roof trusses, floor trusses, engineered wood beams, wood I-joists, wood wall panels, and a whole host of other pre-assembled framing components. To see a selection of our work, please check out some of our projects at this link: Reliable Truss Projects.

To service our community, we have 45 road lumber and building materials salesmen who are additionally supported by 7 on-the-road engineered component specialists. In the office, we boast two professional engineers on staff who can quickly solve even the most difficult of structural building conditions and other designers (on our staff of more than 30) who have their EIT certification. We put together this talent so that your project is always moving forward.

When your needs require wood framing components of any type, please consider Reliable Truss and Components, in business since 1954 and proudly part of the National Lumber Family of Companies. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
