Axion to Exhibit with DICA at ConExpo

Feb. 25, 2020 — Axion Structral Innovations and DICA will exhibit together in multiple booth locations at the Conexpo-Con/Agg trade show in Las Vegas, March 10-14.

Axion’s Struxure composite crane mats and heavy-duty access mats will be on display alongside DICA’s SafetyTech outrigger pads, FiberMax crane pads, and ProStack cribbing blocks at North America's largest construction trade show.

In addition to exhibiting together at Conexpo, DICA and Axion have agreed to establish a strategic partnership to bring engineered matting products to crane users in the heavy lift market.

The companies’ values and products share common benefits for users. Each company uses the highest quality engineered materials, which provide benefits over traditional wood products. The companies’ engineered materials produce reliable and consistent performance in products that have an extremely long life.

“Axion has world class engineering, product development, and manufacturing capabilities. They have a proven track record in the highly regulated railroad industry and have developed excellent products for building access roads, crane work platforms, and laydown yards,” said Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA. “Axion’s construction and heavy-duty mats complement DICA’s product line, and our vision to provide engineered foundation solutions for all equipment.”

Allen Kronstadt, Axion’s executive chairman, said: “DICA impressed us with its comprehensive and engineered product line, technical leadership, brand strength, and overall integrity. By providing performance-driven products that outlast and outperform wood alternatives, both companies are solving problems in areas where wood products perform inconsistently. DICA and Axion are a natural fit and complement each other."

Among the Axion products to be on display at ConExpo in Central Hall booth C20838 and Festival Lot booth F8258 are Struxure heavy-duty composite mats, steel-reinforced composite mats, composite laminated mats, and composite wedge mats. Using a proprietary structural composite formula, Struxure mats are extremely strong, durable, and impervious to rot, fungus, insects, and moisture. They provide cost-effective, long-term solutions in wet or harsh-temperature environments.
