We leverage decades of industry-trusted knowledge and expertise to design and engineer solutions that meet the growing needs and market trends of the foodservice and supermarket industries.
With operational excellence and continuous improvement as our cornerstone, we pride ourselves on strong partnerships with our team members, customers, suppliers, shareholders, and community.
We have fully equipped ETL satellite-certified test labs. All of the labs are UL approved and designed to test display cases for optimum refrigeration performance and NSF 7 certification. As each case is completed during the final assembly stage it is transferred to a Production Test Lab. All of our refrigerated cases are certified to Type I at a minimum, with a great many certified to Type II. Our heated merchandisers are certified to NSF 4, UL197.
Our company’s foundation of unprecedented expertise in self-contained refrigeration has allowed us to pioneer award-winning technology that sets the standard for reliable products with unmatched ease of operation and strong performance. Rather than relying on third-party refrigeration, we engineer and manufacture purpose-built solutions for performance that brings peace of mind that your display is performing as intended.
Structural Concepts designs and assembles its own refrigeration packages. These refrigeration units are built specifically to the requirements needed for the case in which they will be used. This is a key factor in our strong refrigeration performance and energy-saving capabilities and affords the flexibility to respond to changing regulatory standards.
Structural Concepts is vertically integrated to optimize cost and lead time. We operate fully automated metal cutting with 3K and 6K fiber lasers, which are capable of running lights out.
Metal parts that are cut on our lasers from CAD design are then programmed and formed on one of nine Brake Presses or our Panel Bender. Formed and fabricated components that require additional finishing are sent to our in-house paint facility for Powder Coating. This new investment includes a 6-stage pretreatment system, GEMA spraying equipment, Automatic Spray Gun booth of which are all inside our temperature and humidity-controlled paint room.
Our Woodshop provides customer specified & designed insulated panels with colorful painted surfaces or laminates, edge-banding and acrylic that is supported by our panel saw and 3 CNC Routers. Additionally, the CNC 3-axis routers can cut foamboard, blueboard insulation, SANALITE, acrylic, ABS, plywood and MDF.
To support our goal of designing a case so beautifully simple it disappears, making the product the focus, a UV Bonded Glass Production room was built to produce our frameless display merchandisers. Dedicated, highly skilled employees have been trained to produce these glass components. Specialized glass cleaning machines and operator assist lifts ensure the glass remains defect-free during the bonding process.
Structural Concepts tests all self-contained refrigerated cases and heated cases. The test confirms controllers and expansion valves (refrigerated only) are set to meet performance requirements. The refrigerated cases are tested in a controlled environment room assuring consistent expansion valve settings.
Structural Concepts is currently in the process of registration to the ISO9001:2015 standard. This quality management system integrates with the full spectrum of our business processes.
