Canadian Company Thrives Within "Buy American" Provision

CALGARY, Sept. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - DIRTT Environmental Solutions, a modular interior wall manufacturer based in Calgary, is able to thrive within the proposed "Buy American" provision by using 3D configuration software called ICE®. 

ICE is 3D configuration software that allows DIRTT clients to design a customized interior space and fly through it like a videogame. Within ICE's interface, changes may be made to the look and layout while the software keeps tabs on cost changes, specifications and even manufacturing instructions. The final ICE drawing is sent directly to the manufacturing factory, where the machines read the design information and cut, drill and produce exactly what the client wanted. The price, parts list and even manufacturing directions are instantly produced. This eliminates human error in the transcribing of designs to SKU numbers and lowers the labour overhead of the manufacturer.

With ICE, DIRTT is able to open manufacturing plants anywhere in the world because they don't need highly trained manpower to run a factory. Manufacturers as diverse as data center producers and school furniture factories now use ICE as a production tool. DIRTT has been in business for just six years and, in addition to its original Calgary plant, has already opened new production facilities in Savannah, GA and Phoenix, AZ.  DIRTT itself has become the top selling modular wall producer in North America with 2011 sales approaching $120 million.

DIRTT keeps their Canadian plant in Calgary to full capacity while bringing jobs to the U.S., their products closer to their clients, and lessening their carbon footprint for transportation. DIRTT stands for Doing It Right This Time and is a Certified B Corporation.
