PIER-TECH : AN OVERVIEW
Pier-Tech, Inc. is a US based manufacturing company. The company was established for the purpose of making fixed and portable Piers that can accept astronomical German Equatorial or Fork Mounts or other instruments. In time they expanded their production to develop astronomical observatories with slide-off roof, and most recently in 2008 they expanded production to include observatory domes for use by professional and home astronomical observatories, and planetaria constructed of galvanized steel in diameters from 8 feet (2.4m) up to 30 foot 6 inches (9.3 meters)! So by 2008 Pier-Tech was offering almost everything that an amateur or professional astronomer could want to house their telescope or other project.
Company Seven became aware of this developing company because of their increasing selection of roll-off roof observatories and telescope piers. And even though we do offer observatory domes for sale, and our own observatory is in a superb dome, there were times when we deduced that our customer might be better served with a roll-off roof observatory and we therefore would recommend a Pier-Tech Tele-Station with a Pier as among the first choices. While no observatory structural arrangement is a perfect solution since each brings with it some compromises, there are instances when the roll-off roof arrangement may be preferred over a dome:

Company Seven became convinced this product line had evolved to provide such a comprehensive solution for our customers. When one of our customers in Maryland took our advice to consider a Pier-Tech observatory and pier, the customer asked us to provide a 'turn key' solution: the telescope with mount atop a Pier-Tech 2 Pier, all within a Pier-Tech Tele-Station 2 observatory. And so beginning in July 2008 among their best endorsements is the fact that Company Seven, one of the most accomplished remaining specialty astronomical instruments companies, saw fit to make these products available and with our services too! We invite you to contact Company Seven to learn what we and our Pier-Tech products can do to make your observing sessions more frequent and more rewarding.
Pier-Tech Products Are Made In The USA: this original and innovative product line is completely designed and all mechanical components are fully made in the USA. We look forward to even more innovations as this line continues to develop.
There is no law that requires most products sold in the U.S.A. to be marked or labeled as such, or make any representation about their amount if U.S. made content. However we guarantee our Universal Astronomics products comply with the United States Federal Trade Commission's 'Made In USA' policy. For a product to be called Made in USA, or claimed to be of domestic origin without qualifications or limits on the claim, the product must be "all or virtually all" made in the United States. The term "United States" as referred to the FTC's Enforcement Policy Statement Complying With The Made In USA Standard, includes the 50 states (yes including Hawaii), the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories and possessions. The term "all or virtually all" means that all significant parts and processing that go into making the product must be of US origin; that is to say the product contains none or virtually no foreign content.
