“Mark Dodd, the former owner who also owns Dodd Technologies, was in search of a ‘right fit’ to take over Tyler Truss,” said Cleland. “The truss industry is absolutely unique, but as a manufacturer, it’s also very similar to other manufacturing companies in that they require talented professionals, a solid culture, proven systems in place, dedication to customers and quality, plus innovation, and more. These are many of the pillars I’ve held to for over 40 years.”

“With Glenn’s leadership and history of success, we knew we were the right fit,” said COO/President Marc Johnson. “Make no mistake, we will pay close attention to what got Tyler Truss to where it is today, quality workmanship, as we move forward. There are great people here…true pros, we bring the latest in systems, management, design and manufacturing experience. While working with the existing Tyler team to implement continuous improvements, we’re excited to write the next chapter.”
