History of Area Four Industries

The seeds of Area Four Industries were planted in 1994 when Milos Structural Systems was founded in the Czech Republic. It quickly grew into one of the largest truss manufacturers in Europe, and then further extended its reach with the establishment of Milos U.K. and Milos America. In 2007, a new Milos manufacturing plant was opened in Guangzhou, China, followed by the opening of Milos Concepts GmbH in 2010.
 
Area Four Industries was created in 2012 when the engineering design expertise, experience, knowledge, and manufacturing capabilities of its three brands - Milos Structural Systems, Litec and TOMCAT - were combined and solidified. James Thomas Engineering joined the board in 2014.
 
The union of these four brands led to an improved and redefined structure that has allowed Area Four Industries to give its customers access to the worlds largest offer of truss, support structures, peripheral products and related services.
 
Area Four Industries is currently in the process of extending its network of exclusive offices. In 2015, a new office was opened in the United Kingdom. At the start of 2016, 
a new office was opened in Germany.
