IRONSMITH, INC. Announces Organization Changes and Enhanced Designs for Hardscape Products

PALM DESERT, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - IRONSMITH, INC. announces organizational changes ushering in a new decade and enhanced product designs of Tree Grates, Trench Grates, Paver-Grate, and Bollards for the hardscape market. "Our custom metal products integrate trees and shading, storm water management and security into the built environment. This offers the landscape architect flexibility for designing elements of varying styles, shapes and dimensioning," explains Paul Bambauer, IRONSMITH's President and CEO. "Our commitment to supporting designer's expectations for recycled metal products, made to exacting specifications and durability requirements, is our mission."

D'Arcy Deeks was promoted to Senior Vice President with oversight of all product design and development. D'Arcy has been instrumental in the development of all products and systems over the last two decades, and is excited to take on his new responsibilities. Project designers across the country, with support of IRONSMITH's Design Department, bring to life custom designs from the pattern and tooling shop in Montclair, CA, and production facilities in southern California and Tijuana, B.C., Mexico. "By improving and expanding the capabilities of our new Pattern and Tooling Division in Montclair, we provide responsive services to project stakeholders in new building construction, and renovating or retrofitting existing developments. Our goal is to offer unique, site specific customized solutions that are competitively priced with generic off-the-shelf products," states Deeks.

IRONSMITH's Tree Grates, Paver-Grate™, and Trench Grates have earned the Green Approved mark from the National Association of Home Builders' Research Center. This third-party validation is provided to manufacturers whose products contribute toward a building achieving certification in accordance with the National Green Building Standard, ICC 700-2008. IRONSMITH's unique capabilities provide for meeting higher green project objectives by incorporating these products in design strategies. The products support higher density developments, and custom branding for commercial projects and residential communities.
