Need for an efficient structural framing system

In late 2000, inventor Robert J. Simmons conceived the ConXR 200 connection to address the need for an efficient structural framing system for the then robust high-density residential and mixed-use markets. An entrepreneur, Mr. Simmons had established, owned and was operating successful businesses in the construction industry for three decades. His years of hands-on field experience and management, executive insight and a keen desire to efficiently deliver the ultimate in quality and value lead him to invent and deploy the ConX System. The system was developed, peer reviewed, tested and refined over the following three years in Mr. Simmons’ barn.

In 2004, ConXtech was founded, incorporated as a Delaware Corporation, and moved into a 122,000 ft2 facility in Hayward, California, where the team began to build its manufacturing, fabrication and world-class structural testing capabilities. This facility is capable of producing 6 million ft2 of structural steel frame annually.

Today, ConXtech offers a complete turn-key structural solution for owners and developers who specify ConX as the structural “chassis” for their projects. ConXtech’s present capabilities include education on the ConX System, design assistance for designers and engineers, structural engineering services, connector manufacturing, fabrication and field installation.
