(Wheatfield, June 27, 2003) The American Concrete Institute (A.C.I.) Western New York Chapter, held its annual awards banquet at Bohns Restaurant in Batavia, NY where Calamar was selected as winner in the commercial category for their submission of Fairview Fittings & Manufacturing, Inc.

Fairview Fittings & Manufacturing is located at Niagara Falls Boulevard and Shawnee Road in The Woodlands Corporate Center in Wheatfield, Niagara County's first business park in over a decade, and was constructed using the CON/STEEL concrete TILT-UP method. In this type of construction, the floor slab for the entire building is placed first and then used as the casting bed for all wall panels to be formed and poured. Once curing has been attained, the walls are then "tilted" into place. All work is done completely on-site using locally produced materials. This 25,000 S.F. building consists of office and warehouse/production space and is the U.S.A. headquarters for this international company. Fairview Fittings faith in Calamar and the TILT-UP system allowed us to utilize this state-of-the-art technology and yield such great results.

"This award exemplifies the hallmark of our commitment to excellence for our customers. Our dedicated and skilled craftsmen along with the outstanding quality and benefits derived from the CON/STEEL TILT-UP system enables Calamar to truly add value to our clients", said Calamar President Kenneth M. Franasiak. "It's always a special honor to be recognized by your peers in the industry", said Vice President of Construction, Brad Griffiths. When accepting the award, Griffiths thanked Fairview in particular, which has strong ties to the pre-cast system and chose the superiority of the on-site concrete TILT-UP method instead. Fairview Fittings & Mfg., Inc. is a leading manufacturer and distributor of hose and fittings assemblies as well as many other products.
