There is a position open for a Director for the new Lateral Force Resisting
Systems Laboratory to be constructed near Pleasanton, CA.  This is a new
position created in response to the need to expand our research and
development capabilities in this area. 

JOB DESCRIPTION

presentations to both non-Simpson Strong-Tie and Simpson Strong-Tie
personnel.
