INNO Holdings, based in the Houston suburb of Brookshire, Texas, says its mission is to transform the construction industry with its proprietary cold-formed steel-framing technology and other building innovations. The company describes Its products – steel studs, tracks and headers – as an alternative to the construction industry’s traditional lumber-framing methods. INNO Holdings says its products can reduce labor costs. The company’s name, “INNO,” comes from the word “innovation,” according to the prospectus.
“We are currently a manufacturer of cold-formed-steel members and we offer a full range of services required to transform raw materials into precise steel framing products and prefabricated homes,” the prospectus says.
INNO Holdings says its customers use its products in residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure construction projects.
The company is not profitable. For the 12 months that ended March 31, 2023, INNO Holdings reported a net loss of $2.09 million on revenues of $2.82 million, according to financial statements in the prospectus.
