Techno Metal Post Illiana in Chicago is now operating a Techno Metal Post Dealership in Northeastern Illinois and Northwestern Indiana.

Tony Verga learned about helical piles when researching a construction project. He previously had installed decks and additions with dug footings and sought a new technology to eliminate digging, hauling, mixing cement and a 5-day cure time. His research led him to Techno Metal Post in Thetford Mines, Quebec, the leader in Helical Pile Technology and Custom Installation Equipment. Verga said, “not only is Techno Metal Post offering the product, but they are offering a fully engineered solution.”

The soil in the Lake Michigan region is mostly clay. Installing concrete sonotubes is costly and labor intensive for construction contractors. After meeting with the Techno Metal Post team, Tony saw the development potential in this region. Verga said, “I believe that the helical pile technology will receive an enthusiastic welcome in our region.”

In July 2016, Tony traveled to Thetford Mines to participate in certification classes on installing piles, use of the installation equipment and the structural and practical engineering of helical piles. In August 2016, additional training sessions were held in Chicago for staff from Chicago and Indiana and Techno Metal Post Southern Wisconsin.

With the quick adaptation of helical piles in the construction industry and the popularity of TV shows such as “Decked Out” (DIY Network), Techno Metal Post Illiana has great growth potential.

“Tony is an experienced individual who is not afraid to confront challenges that arise. He asked very specific questions, showing he had already researched the product. I am know the Chicago Dealership will be very successful,” commented Serge Larouche, Director of Development in the U.S.

Techno Metal Post Illiana will be serving Northeastern Illinois and Northwestern Indiana for both residential and commercial applications. For more information contact TMPI at Illinois: 630.631.0684 or Indiana: 219.200.3011.

About Techno Metal Post

Techno Metal Post was founded in 1993 in Thetford Mines, Quebec. The company's vision was to provide the best helical pile foundations mainly for the residential market in Quebec. Over the years, Techno Metal Post has expanded and now offers deep foundation solutions for the commercial and industrial sector. Helical piles are also used to support industrial equipment, recreational-tourism structures, telecommunications equipment, signs, etc.

In November 2011, Techno Metal Post received an evaluation report (ESR # 3418) from the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC- ES) in the United State providing proof that its 3 1⁄2 " (88.9 mm) diameter pile, models P3- 8, P3- 10 and P3- 12, and bracket models PC5, PC6, PC8, PU4, PU5, PU4B, PU5B, PSC6, PSC8, PIB6 and PIB8 meet the requirements of the IBC (International Building Code). That report has since been revised to cover the multi-helix pile models.
