About us

At IsoTruss, Inc. our mission is to help companies build with the structures and technology of tomorrow.

Our patented IsoTruss® geometry is a radically transformative structural solution that is stronger, lighter-weight, more durable and less expensive than traditional materials. We’re the new steel! We also build sustainability for tomorrow, because IsoTruss is eco-friendly at every level, from our manufacturing process to the reduction in materials required to achieve structural objectives.

IsoTruss enables companies and engineers to build structures for today and tomorrow, investors to build portfolios for tomorrow, and employees to build careers for tomorrow.

As an engineering, design, and manufacturing services provider, we produce patented IsoTruss® lattice cell towers for the telecommunications industry and other applications. IsoTruss® cell towers, fabricated with composite material, are lightweight, durable, cost-effective, corrosion-resistant, sustainable, and environmentally friendly.

The IsoTruss® technology advantage is adaptable and scalable. Utilizing our family of patented, composite material grid structures, we offer R&D capabilities, applications, and solutions in telecommunications infrastructure, aerospace, civil infrastructure, energy, construction, leisure, and more.

Originally a 1994 technology R&D spin-off of Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah, we were acquired by our current CEO Nathan D. Rich in 2015 and have been growing ever since.
