Daring New Ideas for Infrastructure Repair

QuakeWrap

It is no secret that infrastructure in North America is, on the whole, long overdue for repairs and renovation. Many of our buildings and bridges are reaching the end of their lifecycles, requiring work to keep our world moving. However, in Tucson, Arizona, a dedicated cadre of engineers is creating revolutionary building materials with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP). With this remarkable material, QuakeWrap Inc. hopes to strengthen both old and new infrastructure and make carbon fiber more commonplace in modern construction.

He knew his customers would need this product and his company could be the one to provide it. In 60 years the family has turned this insight into an industry.
