Competitive Landscape - Interstate Gratings

Goals

For the three main competitors of Interstate Gratings, and the company itself, provide a competitive analysis identifying the main gratings products sold, their most popular product, who they sell their products to, comparative price points. In addition, identify the type of marketing each company undertakes and consumer sentiment for each company.

Early Findings

Competitors

  • While all companies noted distribute products across the United States (and globally), the following had facilities located close to or within the western and mountain states: Grating Pacific has a facility in Arizona, while Nucor has both a sales and manufacturing/fabrication facility in Utah.

Company and Industry Analysis

  • Interstate Gratings was formed in 2007 by a cohort of former colleagues with extensive industry experience (or around 200 years of industry experience when combined).
  • President Mike Clark, in a 2015 interview, indicated that after a slow initial start, the company saw year on year growth until 2013 when the overall industry saw a downturn.
  • Technology innovations and a broader range of applications for steel gratings is currently driving increased demand with the global industry forecast to reach $40.57 billion by 2025 (anticipated to achieve a "CAGR of 7.90% during 2020-2025"), though managing carbon emissions with the current focus on climate change hamper growth.
