Fiberweb announced the signing of an exclusive multi-year contract with PulteGroup Inc., one of the top homebuilders in the United States. Fiberweb’s TYPAR HouseWrap system will now be used on all of Pulte’s new home-builds across 28 states, helping to secure the longevity and energy-efficiency of PulteGroup’s high-quality homes.
The company expects incremental revenues of around $6 million annually from this contract starting in February 2012. TYPAR Weather Protection System products will be supplied through its network of distributors and dealers to serve PulteGroup’s national operations.
“Pulte takes its drainage plane details very seriously. After evaluating five manufacturers in the areas of quality, cost competitiveness, and ease of distribution, Fiberweb’s TYPAR product was the best value proposition for Pulte’s housewrap business.” stated PulteGroup National Purchasing & Supply Chain Manager Kemp Gillis.
“With more awards for customer satisfaction than any other home builder, PulteGroup embodies the values we look for in a strategic partner. PulteGroup believes in building quality homes for a range of homebuyer demographics, and they do their homework to ensure the products they choose will serve their customers for years to come. Competing housewrap products were rigorously evaluated by PulteGroup’s Research & Development and Quality teams and Fiberweb’s TYPAR Weather Protection System was determined to be the best.” said Jake Phillips, sales director for Fiberweb’s North American Construction Products.
The TYPAR Weather Protection System is designed to guard homes and buildings from the damaging effects of moisture and energy-stealing air infiltration. The complete system includes TYPAR HouseWrap and a variety of high-performing flashing solutions and construction tape.
