Our History


In 1975, Phil Erickson founded Erickson Framing as a framer for major home builders in Phoenix. In its early days, Erickson helped pioneer the concept of complete framing systems. In 1986, Erickson acquired a Phoenix truss facility to complement its framing operations. We expanded into Nevada in 1994, and California in 1996.

A New Era of Panelized Framing

Recognizing an opportunity to increase efficiency and quality during the ‘90s, the company transitioned from stick-framing to panelized framing, a process in which wall panels, floor panels and roof systems are fabricated at a factory, then shipped and erected at the construction site. For our customers, this method dramatically reduces construction time, material waste, labor inputs and carrying costs, while improving quality.

Today Erickson is proudly owned by Asahi Kasei Homes
