When November comes around, many Americans think of Thanksgiving, gratitude, and opportunities to give back. Our company has a longstanding tradition created by Simpson Strong-Tie founder, Barclay Simpson, that ties into one of the company values #8: Give Back. Every year in November, Simpson Strong-Tie celebrates giving back with our Do What You Can Day. On that day, our branches organize employee activities partnering with charitable nonprofits.

When your company is in the business of building safer, stronger structures, you’re sure to have more than a few employees who are handy with a hammer (and a screwdriver and drill). This winter, our Pleasanton engineering department decided to put those design and carpentry skills to the test for the greater good.
“Give Back” is one of our nine Company Values established by our founder, Barc Simpson. He said, “No matter what each of our personal situations is, we know that there are many others in this world who will never have the opportunities we’ve had.
