Trinity Shoring Products acquires Efficiency Production Inc.

On July 14, 2017, Trinity Shoring Products Inc., through a subsidiary, acquired all substantial assets of Efficiency Production Inc. Trinity will continue to operate the 46-year-old trench shielding and shoring manufacturer under their primary name, Efficiency Production.

Additionally, the acquisition will have no effect on the business operations or personnel at Pro-Tec or GME.

“Efficiency Production is one of the country’s leading trench shoring manufacturers, and we are very excited to bring their strong brand name and manufacturing capability into Trinity Shoring Products’ family of businesses,” said Joe Zylman, president of Trinity Shoring Products. “We believe this acquisition is a positive step in positioning both Efficiency and Trinity for continued growth and product innovation.”
