Founded in 1962, CEMCO is recognized as a top manufacturer of steel framing, metal lath, and specialty products across the United States. The company holds multiple US patents and trademarks on vertical shaft impact (VSI) technologies and the combined knowledge of its expert staff accounts for more than 300 years of manufacturing expertise.

Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, CEMCO has earned a reputation as an industry leader known for challenging the status quo to deliver high-quality products that meet current requirements and align with evolving needs.

When Scott Yessner, former Chief Financial Officer and CEO successor came on board, however, CEMCO was facing a challenge: An industry-specific ERP used for two decades and had just undergone an upgrade wasn’t working for the company, limiting their ability to meet corporate strategic objectives.

Yessner brought PDG on board to help manage the project and get the company back on track — but this was just the beginning.
