We Welcome 40 Years In Business!
New Year’s Eve brought in an extra special meaning this year for everyone at Design Components. 2018 signifies 40 years in the metal buildings’ accessories industry. It’s hard to believe that we founded this company four decades ago, and during that time, we’re proud to say that we’ve become an industry leader in providing the highest-quality metal building accessories. To celebrate our 40th year, we wanted to share a few things we’ve learned along the way.

We take pride in meeting our customers’ needs from the moment we receive a call until the product is delivered.

Our product development team is made up of some of the steel industry’s most experienced and knowledgeable project management and engineering professionals; they oversee and test all our products from design to packaging. Whether it is the smallest S-5!® clamp or a large-scale, METALWALK® rooftop walkway system, every component must pass our stringent quality tests to be part of the DCI product line.
You Have To Respect Your History
When our founders, Jay Woods and John Fox, started the company originally known as Woods & Fox Associates, they had one simple goal–to provide innovative products that offer customers a solution to complex needs. Bringing in-depth industry sales and engineering experience, they knew what a great product should look like. Starting out with several pre-engineered metal building products (gutters, downspouts, gravity ventilators and specialty flashings, etc.), they realized that metal building manufacturers and contractors needed products that were unique to their use and could safely expand their reach, literally. With this change in focus, Design Components, Inc. was created.
Since then, Design Components has led the steel industry in the engineering, design and selling of metal building products for safety, structure, accessibility and style. With a belief that to be a leader you have deliver innovative products made of the highest-quality materials with exceptional customer service, and above all that anything we deliver has to meet the safest standards in the industry, we continue to hold true to our founders’ legacy.
The Revolution of METALWALK®
As the metal buildings and steel industry grew through the 1980s and 1990s, Design Components, Inc. swiftly became known as a leader for delivering inventive solutions; this was especially true when it involved the industry advancement into providing larger, pre-engineered steel building solutions. These structures posed a new need, safe accessibility to rooftops. As many of these complex structures housed HAVC and ventilation systems on the roof, there needed to be a way to provide employees with personal safety while walking on the rooftop, as well roof protection for the structure itself.
The Design Components, Inc. solution was born in the innovation of our flagship METALWALK® Rooftop Walkway System. Since its inception, METALWALK® has become the gold standard in rooftop walkway systems, keeping thousands of workers safe all over the globe.
Design Components, Inc. Strives For Better
At Design Components, Inc., we are extremely proud to announce that after 40 years, the vision of Jay Woods and John Fox is still going strong. By putting the customer first and offering only superior quality products, like the METALWALK® rooftop walkway system, Design Components continues to strive to be better. As technology continues to grow, so does the reach of engineering and architecture. We look forward to meeting the challenges of our customers’ needs with leading edge solutions.
Thank you for our first 40 years, we look forward to serving you for the next 40.
