In a lot of ways, I grew up in the industry as this was the family business. My uncle and father were home builders. In the mid 1970’s they were having problems getting lumber and trusses delivered on schedule, so they started a lumber yard and then bought a truss plant.
As our industry prepares to gather together in Columbus, Ohio, for BCMC 2019, we thought it would be insightful to look back over the past decade at some of component manufacturing’s crowning achievements.
The dramatic growth in participation has made our discussions livelier and more valuable and has allowed more component manufacturers (CMs) across the country to share their unique experiences and points of view.
During a recent SBCA Webinar, my friend Larry Dix (Apex Truss) and I were sharing examples of times when component manufacturers (CMs) have shared experiences during SBCA meetings that had an immediate impact on how almost everyone in the room did business.
