As the building industry continues its climb back from the recession, both individuals and business owners have learned a few important things; namely, that we must continue to look for ways to stay LEAN yet EFFICIENT, which means optimizing our resources. Said differently, how do we do more with less while maintaining a profitable, productive, and reputable business?
There are likely a handful of solutions to help achieve those goals. A new product and/or a process improvement may be near the top of that list. Foundation Composite Walls is one of those solutions.

Custom Components of Eagle River, Inc., was formed by Glenn Schiffmann, as Founder, President and CEO, in 1990. The original business plan was to provide open wall framing packages (shells) to other residential and light commercial builders in the Eagle River area. Currently employing designers, drivers, accountants, clerical, administrative, manufacturing, sales, field crew, and maintenance personnel, the firm services builders and general contractors throughout northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In the fall of 2001, Schiffmann established a new corporate identity to take charge of Custom Components’ emerging general residential and commercial contracting business. This new company, CornerStone Custom Builders, Inc., has built up to 100 homes per year. Today, CornerStone is the principal contractor for 120 area subcontractors.
Glenn’s vision has taken CPS Panels from the concept stage through research and development, testing, market analysis, and intellectual property protection. He is the manager of Composite Panel Systems, LLC, and oversees all aspects of the project.
