We are ModTruss

Early Project by Kernwer

ModTruss founder and inventor Partick Santini has been rooted in event production for 25+ years. Production companies Kernwer and Northern Lights, created by Santini, both became innovative leaders in temporary structures for on-site sports broadcast – Super Bowls, World Series, US Open Tennis, NASCAR, The NFL Network, and much more.

It was here where the ModTruss product line was born.

The ModTruss product line was developed, tested, and refined on the largest of stages. The structures and site locations requested by the above clients and events were demanding and ground-breaking. Traditional lighting truss and scaffolding were falling short and the ModTruss products were created to meet the challenge.

Once ModTruss was unveiled. Other industries, besides Entertainment, came calling. From Aerospace Access and Industrial Rigging to Fall Protection and Obstacle Courses. The uses for ModTruss have proven too be endless.

The ModTruss name is inspired from the word “Modular” which is defined as “designed with standardized components for easy assembly and flexible arrangement”. ModTruss is true to that definition. ModTruss first and foremost is a structural building component.

ModTruss Inc facilitates the development, engineering, promotion, manufacturing, and sale of the product line. 

The ModTruss team is here to assist with your project needs and questions to make your visions become a reality.
