The buckling-restrained brace is a technology developed and made practical in the late 1980s
by Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co.,Ltd. in Japan. Subsequently, based on our mission and
recognition of ourselves as "an essential entity that continues to contribute to society," we promoted the
improvement of seismic resilience by popularizing the buckling-restrained brace in seismically prone
regions around the world. In the US, we realized the first application in 1999. Through unstinting technical
co-operation and know-how provision, the buckling-restrained brace became widely adopted in structures
as a universal technology.
Our company, established in 2011 as the US affiliate of Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering
Co.,Ltd. will continue to contribute to the improvement of earthquake-proof safety for the sake of society
by spreading the buckling-restrained brace.
