Johns Manville named Insulate America’s “Supplier of the Year”

June 7, 2018

Johns Manville (JM), a Berkshire Hathaway company and leading building products manufacturer, announced today it was named “Supplier of the Year” for 2017 by Insulate America Inc., the nation’s largest insulation contractor association.

JM proudly received this same honor in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017 for each previous year’s performance. Insulate America’s “Supplier of the Year” award recognizes companies for the overall value they provide to the organization through technical expertise, customer support and lead referrals.

“At a time marked by heightened competitive pressure, JM has demonstrated an unparalleled level of dedication and commitment to Insulate America. We are proud to recognize them yet again with this award,” said Insulate America President and CEO David Beam. “With their top-notch service and innovative product solutions, we appreciate the support they provide to help us meet our customers’ needs.”

Insulate America is a cooperative group of locally owned, independent insulation contractors who provide and install quality insulation and other building products for residential and commercial construction. It is the largest independent insulation contracting organization in the U.S. with over 200 locations across the nation. Representatives from each of the locations vote on the “Supplier of the Year” award.

“2018 marks our 18th year of doing business with Insulate America, and it has been a productive and highly rewarding partnership,” said Bob Wamboldt, president of JM Insulation Systems. “We are humbled by this recognition, and we look forward to a future with Insulate America that will be every bit as positive as the experience we’ve had over the past 17 years.”

Several years ago, Johns Manville and Insulate America partnered to create the annual “America’s Best Installer” competition, which highlights the importance of quality insulation installation and its impact on an energy-efficient, more comfortable home. Now in its 16th year, the event pits top installers from across the country in a fast-paced, head-to-head competition. Competitors are judged on quality of workmanship, adherence to safety rules, speed and productivity. This year’s competition is slated for Oct. 18-20 in Denver.
