Efficiency Production, UCA to Hold Roundtable in March

Efficiency Production’s Vice President of Engineering, Mike West, will facilitate a Roundtable Discussion on Custom Shoring and Special Applications.
The Special Operations Shoring Department personnel (L-R) are Tim Hurst, Rod Austin, Bill Cassels, Director Greg Ross and Mike Ross.

In conjunction with Efficiency Shoring & Supply (ESS), and hosted by the Underground Contractors Association (UCA) of Illinois; trench shielding and shoring manufacturer Efficiency Production Inc. invites construction estimators, engineers, municipal DPW personnel, and underground and utility contractors to a special roundtable discussion on custom shoring and special applications.

The free Shoring Roundtable will be held on Thursday, March 27 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the UCA offices; 500 Park Blvd., Suite 154C in Itasca, Ill.

Central to the roundtable discussion will be the introduction of Efficiency Production’s vaunted Special Operations Shoring Division (SOSD), an elite team of shoring specialists whose combined experience encompasses more than 100 years in the underground construction industry, and close to 300 successful installations of Efficiency’s premier slide rail system and other shoring systems.

Additionally, the roundtable will explore the vast levels of engineering and custom shoring application support. Facilitated by Efficiency Production’s Vice President of Engineering, Mike West, the roundtable will highlight how Efficiency’s SOSD and engineering team guide contractors from the bidding process all the way through to the successful completion of their project.

According to the company, praise for Efficiency’s special ops division is extensive:

“I told [the subcontractor] that the only conceivable shoring system that could work for the conditions and parameters, like working inside a building, was a Slide Rail System.


The very next thing I told them was that if you wanted to know anything about Slide Rail, you call Efficiency Production’s Special Operations Shoring Division,” said Mike Smith, owner of Woodhull Construction.

“The support we received from Efficiency was outstanding and exceeded my expectations. Efficiency delivered a Build-A-Box [aluminum trench shield] the very next day we asked for it, and Greg [Ross, Efficiency’s Special Operations Shoring division director] came out to help us install it. A few days later, [Efficiency Shoring Specialist] Mike Ross came by just to see how the box was working and to ask if we had any more questions,” said Greg McClure, gas operations field leader, Consumers Energy.

Also attending the event will be Blake Stevens, shoring solution specialist of Efficiency Shoring and Supply’s Chicago branch office.

Efficiency Shoring is an official Efficiency Production factory-store serving Chicago and northeast Illinois out of its Joliet location.

Morning refreshments will be provided. Individuals wishing to participate in the Shoring Roundtable should RSVP with Kevin Vollmer, Efficiency Shoring’s operations manager, at 815/893-6700 or email Kevin at kvollmer@efficiencyshoring.com
