Molded Fiber Glass Construction Products (MFG CP) partnered with Engineered Devices Corporation (EDC) to supply various sizes of custom fiberglass columns for the rebuild of the world famous 3 World Trade Center in New York City.

MFG CP explains that they manufactured two piece column forms to be used in the third Trade Center building reconstruction.  These two piece column forms made from fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) are 48 and 60 inches in diameter and range from 1ft to 8ft tall, allowing the architects and construction worker to make concrete columns of various heights.  The FRP column moulds can be easily moved by hand from floor to floor due to the light mold weight.  They say the moulds are easily closed and concrete is poured into the closed mould. On the inside wall of the mould there is a gel coated surface giving the columns a smooth and eye-catching finish that needs no further work.

Joe Kusiak, Sales Manager said “This project was such a large part of history that the entire MFG CP team was proud to be able to be participate in a small portion of the rebuild of Ground Zero.”
