GHK Truss, Inc
About GHK Truss

GHK Truss, LLC was incorporated in Indiana in 2007 and is managed by three operating partners. We felt the need for a component manufacturer whose primary focus is on quality and customer service. As a smaller firm, we can react more rapidly to the changing market and customer needs, rather than make promises we can’t keep. Our emphasis is also on quality and design expertise. If you have a complicated design or plan and are in doubt, please give us a try – the results will surprise you!


All Trusses are NOT Created Equal

Many customers consider trusses as a simple commodity where price is the only thing that matters. That is, trusses are lumped in with other building materials such as framing lumber, plywood or shingles, only to be covered up when the roof is sheathed. This is absolutely not the case. Trusses are a custom engineered, custom manufactured building component. While the vast majority of trusses are presently designed using CAD software, the designers and manufacturing team are key players in the quality of the product and the ability to get the job done properly. Lumber grade is also an important input factor. At GHK we do consider price to be important, but at the same time we emphasize quality input so you receive the quality output.


Good Things Come in Small Packages

While we may be a smaller manufacturer, we feel we have some of the best in the business. Want a good fit and finish? Want to avoid costly mistakes, reworks and repairs? Want your product to arrive when you want it? Give GHK Truss a try and you’ll see the difference.
