Prefabrication is not a new concept. Many detention facilities have employed prefabricated steel units for over one hundred years. However, efficient production of prefabricated steel units on a large scale began with SteelCell.
Mike Smith and Ray Handte, our current President and Vice President, played an integral role in the incorporation of SteelCell in 2001. SteelCell's resources center on the creation of modular, prefabricated units. We also focus on how to integrate our units into modern detention facilities. This saves construction costs and creates a safer and more focused work environment. We have seen great success as a company. In 2009, SteelCell moved into a new manufacturing plant designed to produce our units. This facility is state-of-the-art. It allows us to meet our clients' needs with higher efficiency. SteelCell has seen continued growth since we built this plant and expanded our product offering. Roughly 12,000 of our prefabricated units serve more than 180 projects.
SteelCell works hard to stay on the cutting edge of technology. We are always looking for new projects and new industries to explore. Our creative staff works together to design unique solutions. SteelCell is dedicated to achieving its mission. We want to change the way detention projects are built around the world with our innovative technology.
