Winter 2015

I hope everyone reading this had a happy and safe holiday season. I also hope you're looking forward to 2015 as much as we are here at Alumi-Guard.

As many of you remember, we integrated with Barrette in February of last year and the relationship has been very beneficial to both companies. Barrette has been unwavering in their support, and has allowed Alumi-Guard to continue to operate as we always have – but with the added benefit of Barrette's vast resources. We couldn't have asked for a better company to partner up with as we look to expand and improve our business for many years to come.

Summer 2013

The weather is cooling off and football is in full swing, so this means we’re at the end of another fencing season. We hope all of you are having a good year and, like us, are looking forward to having an even better year in 2014. We have heard from a lot of you that the economy is picking up some, which is great news for all of us. Despite the quagmire in Washington, we might actually get to see some real economic growth in the next year.

Winter 2013

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season. I would like to ring in the New Year by introducing some of the new products and services we’ve been working on at Alumi-Guard: Our all new Imperial and Municipal fence lines along with the development of our Post Strap System. We created these new products to complement our augmented Architectural Services Department.

This past fall we also decided to invest in several architectural programs. We teamed up with McGraw/Hill to take part in both Dodge Reports and the Sweets catalogue. This will allow us to not only market our products to more people but now we can track more spec jobs to pass along to you. We are also participating in AEC Daily. This will allow architects to receive continuing education credits while being educated on the benefits of aluminum fence and more specifically Alumi-Guard. This way, it’s likely we’ll be spec’d from the beginning to help our dealers get a leg up on their competition.

Did you know...

The appearance of the fence in human societies marked the transition from a pattern of looting nature to taking care of it. It was with devoted agriculture that fences came about. In Ancient Mesopotamia, Rousseau curiously alludes to the inventor of the fence - stating: "The first man who, having fenced in a piece of land, said "This is mine,"... that man was the true founder of civil society."

The fence helped institutionalize one of the most important elements of the social contract – the collective recognition of private property.
