February 28, 2012, Glenview, IL -- The Metal Construction Association welcomes two additional companies to its membership. Honeywell Flourine Products of Morristown, NJ and Rigid Global Buildings of Houston, TX join the ranks of the nearly 90 member companies with specialties in the metal construction industry.
Honeywell offers high-performance specialty materials, including fluorine products; specialty films and additives; advanced fibers and composites; intermediates; specialty chemicals; electronic materials and chemicals; and technologies and materials for petroleum refining. Honeywell Flourine Products joins MCA in the Energy Insulation Systems Manufacturer category.
"Honeywell designs products that help conserve energy, reduce waste, and protect our homes and offices," said Ken Gaglione, senior global marketing manager. "We recognized MCA's commitment to expanding the use of energy efficient and sustainable building materials and the direct role these efforts could play in helping to reduce global dependence on non-renewable sources of energy. We are pleased to be a member of the organization and to lend our support to this worthwhile goal."
"Our primary focus is to raise the awareness of the building owner and designer of the many benefits insulated metal panels offer in reaching energy management goals," he said. "We look forward to working with the appropriate committees at MCA, individual member companies, and with regulators to help drive this message."
Rigid Global Buildings designs and manufactures pre-engineered steel buildings and structural steel. Rigid's designs range from a simple box style traditional metal building all the way up to the elaborate structure that bears no resemblance to a metal building.
"With our membership in MCA, we feel we are supporting the industry and, with MCA's collective voice, becoming a larger part of it," said Steve Olson, executive vice president of sales and marketing. "We plan to get involved with the councils and become a louder voice for the metal building manufacturer. The Codes and Standards Committee is very interesting to us, especially with the changes the International Code Council is making to the International Building Code."
About the Metal Construction Association
The Metal Construction Association brings together a diverse industry for the purpose of expanding the use of metal in construction through marketing, research and technology and education. Companies involved in MCA gain tremendous benefit from association activities that focus on research, codes and standards, market development, and technical programs. Driving MCA's market development efforts is The Metal Initiative (www.themetalinitiative.com), which is a program to increase the use of metal materials in construction through the education of the building and design communities about the benefits of metal.
MCA's next meeting is the 2012 Semi-Annual Meeting, set for August 6-8 in Indianapolis.
