Join the Oregon Truss Team

Oregon Truss is expanding our team of dedicated professionals. We have invested heavily in technology, our facility and automated equipment over the past 4 years. Our new systems are more ergonomic, reliable and efficient, allowing us to produce more volume at a lower unit cost. Our capacity has more than tripled, allowing us to commit to customer needs with better lead times, while enabling us to enjoy substantial growth.

Our plant was redesigned from the ground up, giving us the greatest throughput and product versatility, with safer and less fatiguing work flow.

The new office was designed with state-of-the-art health, comfort and productivity features. The structure shell is structural insulated panels (SIPs) with abundant, very high energy efficiency windows. A ground water heat exchange system runs through first and second story floors, with slow moving fans that keep the air circulating, without a detectable breeze. A variety of lighting gives our office excellent illumination, which perfectly complements our open, airy environment.

We invest in superior equipment. Our employees have greater productivity enhancing their participation in our productivity-based incentive programs.

Our founder, Wayne Beebe, has the philosophy of creating an environment where employees go home thinking “why would I want to work anywhere else,” which leads to them treating customers who will think “why would I want to get trusses from anyone else”.

If you want to grow with a dynamic team, Oregon Truss is your kind of company.
