TITAN solves concrete contractors' problems. Its role is to get the equipment to a job
on time, Bacon says. "We've had times when
we have been extremely busy and had to air
freight the equipment from overseas," he remembers. "Everything we have is steel and
aluminum so sometimes the value of the
shipment exceeds the value of the equipment, it doesn't always make economic
sense, but we take care of our client."
TITAN recently rolled out a new endto-end software system that allows for
seamless communication among the sales,
engineering, yard, operations, invoicing
and accounting teams. "It's a quantum leap

TITAN works with contractors to design
equipment that meets their unique needs.
TITAN's in-house research and development
team brings new ideas to completion with
computer modeling, 3-D printing, prototyping and extensive testing. "At TITAN, we
work diligently to develop state-of-the-art
equipment that fiercely competes with the
most innovative designs in the market,"
Bacon says. "With several patents and more
in the pipeline, we strive to generate bestin-class solutions for our customers to get
the job done safely and efficiently."
The R&D team is also responsible for
quality control. "We have a solid quality
control program and our R&D team meets
with our manufacturers to check the equipment before shipping," Bacon notes. "It's a
sophisticated process to ensure they get the
equipment that they designed it correctly."
Shoring in Action
A majority of TITAN's work is in the multifamily sector and it plans to continue
diversifying its portfolio to withstand the
cyclical industry. In Brooklyn, N.Y., the
company took on a unique project along
the East River where two buildings featured
numerous cantilevered protrusions. The
features required tall shoring over 70 feet
capable of supporting multiple levels until
the building was complete.
TITAN's engineering team deployed the
TITAN MAX 20K shoring system to accommodate the tall shoring/high capacity area.
The TITAN HV modular shoring system was
used throughout the building because of
its flexibility and efficiency. The company
