Simpson Strong-Tie Named Sphere 1's First Primary/Core Preferred Supplier

New category recognizes Simpson's expertise in concrete repair, protection and strengthening products.

Sphere 1 has named Simpson Strong-Tie as its first primary/core preferred supplier for Concrete Repair & Restoration products. This is a newly created product category for Sphere 1, a nationwide cooperative of independent tool and fastener distributors. Simpson Strong-Tie has received the Sphere 1 Partner of the Year award the last two years.

Simpson Strong-Tie is now recognized as a Sphere 1 primary/core preferred supplier in four categories:

  • Connectors
  • Anchors
  • Auto-Feed (Quik Drive® Screw Driving Systems)
  • Concrete Repair & Restoration

“We are excited at the opportunity to expand our relationship with Sphere 1 as the first supplier in this newly launched product category,” said Mike Clemente, Simpson Strong-Tie director of New Business Development for Infrastructure, Commercial and Industrial Construction.

Simpson Strong-Tie launched its repair, protection and strengthening systems product line in September, after acquiring Fox Industries in 2011. The company will be continuing to release new formulations in the coming year as it expands its presence in infrastructure, commercial and industrial construction. For more information, visit
