Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced DuPont, Wilmington, Del., has joined NRCA’s One Voice initiative as a partner member.
In 2017, NRCA launched its One Voice initiative to unite the roofing industry and speak with one voice about matters critical to the roofing industry's continued success.
To ensure all industry sectors are given an opportunity to participate, NRCA amended its bylaws to allow manufacturers, distributors, architects, engineers and consultants that choose to participate to become full members of the association, meaning they will be granted voting rights and eligible for leadership roles within the association. Previously, such rights were reserved only for contractor members.
“NRCA’s One Voice initiative offers a unique opportunity for the roofing industry to address the major issues we face,” says Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “However, our work can only be accomplished with commitments from leaders from all sectors of this great industry. Only together as a roofing community can we take this transformational approach to address our issues and concerns and achieve success in the future.”
Issues currently affecting the roofing industry include workforce development and certification; advancing the industry’s public policy agenda; building codes and insurance; and increasing professionalism throughout the industry.
“DuPont is very excited to strengthen our relationship with NRCA while also working with other great industry leaders,” says Steve Del’Nero, North American steep slope channel manager for DuPont. “We are focused on continuing our growth in the roofing category through strategic additions in our product lines as well as integrating all of the previous Dow Chemical products into the portfolio. DuPont is known for strong brands that people trust globally, Tyvek® being strong in construction has allowed us to pivot that into roofing.”
