The Company was founded in Napier New Zealand in 1995 as Scottsdale Building Systems Ltd (since changed to Scottsdale Construction Systems Ltd) to develop & market light gauge steel wall & roof panel technology primarily for residential construction.
Scottsdale launched its products in earnest in 1997 comprising roll forming machines plus design & manufacturing software.
Scottsdale formed strategic relationships with two major US corporations. In 2003 NuconSteel (Part of Nucor) bought the rights to Scottsdale’s panelised technology for the North American market and Mexico.
In 2005, Scottsdale Construction Systems and Truswall (part of Illinois Tool Works) and NuconSteel entered into a joint venture and developed our truss fabrication system. Scottsdale sells the truss technology in all world markets.
In 2016, Scottsdale Construction Systems took back the rights to the North America and Mexico from Nucor and Illinois Tool Works and now sells and supports these markets alongside the rest of the world markets that it previously operated in.
Today Scottsdale Construction Systems has sold over 700 machines in over 80 countries.
