Palm City, FL, United States, 2008/02/14 - Poma and Sons, Inc., the Palm City, FL-based parent company and manufacturer of Redi-Tilt, exceeded the company’s expectations at the World of Concrete show and exhibition in Las Vegas last week, according to Jason Poma, Vice -President.
Since receiving its patent in 2006, this was the concrete industry’s first look at the Redi-Tilt system.
“The US and global interest in Redi-Tilt at the show was excellent, and the results of that interest are considerable,” Poma said. “As a result of our appearance at the show, we have met with people from throughout the United States, South America, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Kazakhstan, and Iraq, and we are presently in negotiations with a number of them for the available manufacturing licenses.”
After a year-long phase of successful research and development, Redi-Tilt began manufacturing operations in 2000 and received its patent in 2006. Redi-Tilt has been incorporated into the design and construction of over 25 major commercial, institutional, and retail projects in Florida and North Carolina.
“The enthusiasm of the exhibitors and attendees (est. 90,000 in attendance) reinforced our conviction that the simplicity and cost-effective economics of Redi-Tilt are exactly what the construction industry has needed for some time,” Poma added. “Especially in a challenging economy, companies are looking for every edge they can get, and Redi-Tilt give them that edge.”
The pioneering Redi-Tilt wall panel system is available for licensing to qualified manufacturers and contractors in the United States and throughout the world.
Redi-Tilt’s patented wall system offers manufacturers and contractors a strong and lightweight concrete and steel structural wall panel system for wall heights to thirty feet, and the panels install in a fraction of the time as conventional tilt-up construction or block. Redi-Tilt meets or exceeds building codes nationwide including Miami-Dade County.
While primarily used for commercial construction, Redi-Tilt also has applications in residential construction as well. Redi-Tilt panels serve as the walls and roof of a 1,250 SF residence in Stuart, FL. The home is energy efficient and can withstand winds of over 200 MPH.
A division of Poma and Sons, Inc. of Palm City, FL, Redi-Tilt is the patented precast concrete wall system that economically offers the flexibility in design, fabrication, and timely delivery and installation for all shell construction.
