Lloyd Truss Systems as a subsidiary of Lloyd Lumber Co. began in the early 1960's with a small staff of five employees in Lehillier, MN. Truss designs were originally hand drawn and the forces were hand calculated to determine the gusset size and nailing schedule at joints.
When the demand for trusses grew so did the company. In 1976, Lloyd Truss moved to its current North Mankato location. The staff grew to 20 employees during the summer season, and expanded its product lines. The company went from building trusses for homes, garages and pole barns to carving itself a niche by supplying both floor and roof trusses for some of the most complex homes, and commercial projects in Southern Minnesota.
Recently, Lloyd Truss has expanded to include a larger dealer network that covers most of southern Minnesota, and Northern Iowa.
As technology changed the company progressed from hand drafting to computer aided drafting (AutoCAD), and from hand calculations to a computer truss design program by Truswal Systems. As layout programs enhanced its involvement with engineering programs the company switched to Mitek in 2004.
