GatorBar Glass – 100% Made in the USA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 3, 2020

AHMEEK, Michigan – With recent concerns arising over global supply chains and origins of manufacturing, Neuvokas Corp, a leading composite rebar manufacturer, wants to assure concrete reinforcement customers that its GatorBar Glass fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar is manufactured in the USA.  GatorBar Glass is constructed in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan using components that are 100% made and sourced within the USA as well.      

GatorBar Glass offers the everyday lowest cost composite, zero-rust rebar that dramatically reduces material, labor, transportation and handling costs, while providing better crack control and up to 4x greater tensile strength as compared to steel rebar.     

“One of the objectives during the development of GatorBar Glass was to produce a concrete reinforcement product that was 100% made in the USA.  This means it would not be held hostage to vagaries, delays, uncertainties and or import tariffs often witnessed with other products with supply chains and or manufacturing processes outside of the United States,” said Ken Keranen, COO at Neuvokas Corp.     

About Neuvokas Corp:  Neuvokas Corp is based in Ahmeek, MI Michigan and produces industry leading composite rebar products for the concrete space using its proprietary and patented manufacturing process.  Founded in 2013 by Erik Kiilunen and Ken Keranen from a simple observation:  advances in manufacturing and material sciences would allow composite rebar to be produced competitively with its steel counterpart.

“With #3 GatorBar we were able to make guide pins to help us place our forms more accurately, while eliminating the concern about corrosion.  The pins will be close to the outside of the wall, and in a corrosive marine environment, like Galveston, it’s nice to have this option.”
