Making Your Complex Projects EasyRead about a platform decking project in Rossford, OH
Industrial platforms play a vital role in today’s supply chain. Often platforms are the last to be designed, and the first installed. Our role is to make sure they don’t slow you down.
Legacy Platform was created to be a neutral expert resource that customers, end users, and suppliers can rely on to ensure the success of complex platform projects with as little stress and strain as possible.
For GCs working on complex distribution facility and warehouse projects, getting waylaid by the cumbersome platform system procurement process is frustrating. That’s why we created Legacy: to make the process of installing these systems easier. Our end-to-end set of services, help eliminate the burden this process imposes and closes the gap between manufacturer and contractor. We are not intermediaries trying to sell you products. We work for you and will provide the best recommendations for your needs and be on-site to ensure the job gets done to the high standards we share.
