Fibergrate Composite Structures Inc., Dallas, will celebrate its 50th anniversary in September. The company was founded by William Coonrod after he created the first fiberglass molded grating panel in his Dallas garage.
To celebrate the 50-year milestone, Fibergrate will host events for employees at its Dallas headquarters, as well as its two manufacturing facilities in Stephenville, Texas, and Querétaro, Mexico. Fibergrate has more than 300 employees worldwide, including many who have been with the company since the 1970s.
At the three events, Fibergrate will commemorate the company's history and reveal the company's new tagline to employees, leading them into the next 50 years.
"I thank each and every one of our valuable employees for continuing to innovate and advance Fibergrate's international footprint," said President Eric Breiner. "While we're proud to be a global manufacturer, we find the greatest achievement is our commitment to provide personalized service with local teams who work closely with our clients on projects from beginning to end."
Fibergrate has expanded its selection of FRP products to provide high-performance engineered solutions, including custom creations, to a variety of industries ranging from architecture and food & beverage to transportation and oil & gas. Key applications include slip resistant molded and pultruded grating for flooring, stair treads, safety railings and structural components for platforms.
