WELCOME! It is with great excitement and happiness that we introduce you to Pacific Shoring Products, LLC’s newly designed website and first ever blog installment. Trench safety is not just our business, it is our dedication. Our priority is to continually aspire to design and improve upon product efficiency to ultimately increase the safety of those in the shoring and excavation industry, with cost-effective determination.
Our objective is to become your go-to site for education and information regarding anything shoring, from utilities projects, to tabulated data information and the latest OSHA laws and regulations. We’ll keep you up to date regarding upcoming conferences, as well as what information was shared at past conferences and conventions.
In February 2020, we had the honor of sponsoring two educational sessions and sponsorship participation in the 6 th Annual North American Excavation Shoring Association (NAXSA) Convention and kick off Golf Tournament. The 2020 convention was located at the beautiful, (albeit unseasonably chilly), Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino, including the memorable desert Whirlwind Golf Club, in Chandler, AZ. Pacific Shoring Products, LLC was strongly represented by six of our outstanding sales and marketing team members.
The overriding theme of the 2020 NAXSA Convention spotlighted the utilization and undeniable value of Engineering in developing industrywide strategies and addressing current shoring challenges. Recognizing that Engineering is a tool for increasing safety, efficiency, reducing liability and driving innovation in shoring. The convention came to a dramatic conclusion with the final Keynote Speaker, Commander Mark Nutsch, Green Beret Commander portrayed by actor Chris Hemsworth in the movie, 12 Strong, based on the New York Times Best-Seller, Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton. A fitting finale to the NAXSA convention, focusing on adaptability, resourcefulness and inventiveness applicable to the shoring industry as a whole.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank and look forward to two of our esteemed team members, Pacific Shoring Products, LLC CEO Bruce Russell and
Sales Executive Ross Hawks for volunteering to participate in the NAXSA Membership Committee going forward.
It was truly a testament to a shoring industry icon and NAXSA founding member, Robert (Bob) Pitts, the number of times his name and pioneering contributions were spoken of in panel discussions and reverently mentioned in conversations throughout the convention. He is deeply respected for his insight, transparency and his willingness to assist customers and competitors.
As the reader may already be aware, Bob recently sold this company. His influential presence will always be a part of Pacific Shoring Products, LLC, as Bruce serves as CEO. Bruce has over 25 years of experience in manufacturing, leadership and the construction equipment industry. He is looking forward to continuing the company’s innovative trajectory, along with his staff of creative, competent and recognized experts in their respective fields, including two additional Sales Team members, David McNeal and Ross Ordinario, who you may have met at the NAXSA Convention. It’s going to be an exciting year for all of us in shoring. We’re ready and we’re here to make sure you are, too!
