Why we created the product

Designed from a lifetime of experience

This innovative new excavation shoring product came from a pretty simple beginning: "Somebody needed a problem solved." In the summer of 2011 the Shortek team was challenged to solve a Shoring problem, and solve it they did. Using screw pile technology as part of a modular shoring system - not only was the project successful, a new excavation shoring technique emerged.

Fast forward one year, and add great deal of engineering and planning. Shortek has seen some amazing results on a wide variety of jobs, and is helping make sure everyone goes home safe at the end of the day.
