Connection Design, Modeling and Optimization:
"Having the connections finished so quickly was an immediate benefit and then, of course, the savings. The team at Qnect knows what they were talking about, they did this on paper before. They’ve worked in the industry – talk the language, and really know how the software works."
— Ricky Horton, VP of Finance & Administration, McCombs Steel Company, Inc.
Grifols, a large multinational bioscience company with global headquarters in Spain and US headquarters in California, announced in spring of 2017 the investment of $210 million to build two new buildings at their Clayton campus. Grifols already employs 14,7000 North Carolina residents and the new facilities are scheduled to be completed in the year 2021.
Maintaining a Competitive Advantage. Ever since they opened their doors in 1929, McCombs Steel has paid close attention to customer service and competitive pricing for their customers and community at large. As a mid-sized fabricator, McCombs Steel prides themselves on their attention to detail, hard work, and dedication to industry knowledge. McCombs began working with Qnect in 2017. Like many stakeholders in the construction industry, the technology with a service appeared too good to be true.
Trust from the Start
McCombs wanted to see the software in action and answer the question, “Was it really that easy?” Henry Lederman, Qnect CSO with over 40 years of steel detailing experience, flew down to North Carolina to train the team on the software.
Using Qnect, McCombs and their detailer, Prodraft, connected the 1,600 tons in 1 hour. Technology + training + trust = innovation and success for everyone involved.
