Birdair Announces International Reorganization

Birdair Inc. has announced an international reorganization as it expands its worldwide presence through its global network of title group organizations.

A subsidiary of the Taiyo Corp. in Japan, Birdair—along with a number of MakMax Group affiliates—has completed more than 1,300 marquee tensile architectural projects in more than 30 countries and six continents.

To support its transition, Birdair added to its U.S. presence by opening a Los Angeles-based office to complement its North American headquarters in Buffalo, N.Y., and give the company comprehensive coast-to-coast coverage in order to enhance its customer-focused approach.

“Over the course of Birdair’s 60-year history, nearly 20 percent of our business has been derived from the west coast of the United States,” says Hikaru Konno, president, Birdair. “Our new Los Angeles footprint builds on our existing west coast presence to accommodate those customers, while still maintaining close relationships along the east coast with our Buffalo headquarters.

“Our founder, Walter Bird, constructed the first permanent membrane structure not supported by air in Laverne, Calif., in 1973,” adds Konno. “To have that same PTFE glass-fabric specified on our new Los Angeles office just down the road is a rewarding bookend to that innovation.”

The combined restructuring and new west coast location will enable Birdair to collaborate more closely with its subsidiaries across the world. Specifically, Birdair has announced it will assume operation of its Munich office in an effort to expand in European markets, in addition to growing its U.S. footprint.

To support its increasing global presence, Birdair also has launched a new website that reflects the international breadth of both its projects and corporate partners. With a refreshed aesthetic and new functionality, the website showcases all of Birdair’s signature projects. Featured projects include Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the U.S. Embassy in London, UK, Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, Qatar and hundreds of other dynamic custom tensile structures around the world.

A full-service design-build contractor, Birdair features a comprehensive range of pre-construction services including design assistance, budgeting, construction methodologies and project schedule development. Birdair’s in-house capabilities include design development, engineering, fabrication, construction (installation) and service and warranty services.
