Builder Partnerships Names DuPont™ Tyvek®
Manufacturer Partner of the Year

ORLANDO, Florida, Jan. 9, 2018 —DuPont™ Tyvek®, the industry leader in the building wrap category, has received the Third Annual Builder Partnerships Partner of the Year award. This award is presented each year to a manufacturer for demonstrating excellence in supporting Builder Partnerships builder members and their overall base of builder customers. The award was presented during Builder Partnerships’ 13th Annual Networking Reception during the International Builders' Show.

Charles C. Shinn Jr., Ph.D., founder and principal of Builder Partnerships, said the organization was exceptionally pleased to honor DuPont. The manufacturer joins Goodman Manufacturing and GAF, which were the first two winners of the prestigious honor.

“Our goal for the Partner of the Year award is to bring focus on the many ways in which manufacturers can support builders and help them build the best home possible for their buyers,” Shinn said. “DuPont has been a member since 2013; our members rely heavily on Tyvek® to protect the homes they build and on DuPont for support on a wide range of critical construction issues.”

“We are honored to receive the ‘Partner of the Year’ award from Builder Partnerships for 2017,” said Lisa Jenkins, North America business leader, DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope Solutions. “This award builds upon our commitment to deliver exceptional quality for our customers. DuPont works every day to exceed our customers’ expectations, and this award from a respected industry partner is confirmation of our team’s efforts.”

Stephen Crouch, Builder Partnerships vice president of operations, said DuPont™ Tyvek® has led the industry in applying product engineering and material science to solve some of the biggest challenges in building science.  

“In 2017, DuPont™ Tyvek® has been innovative in its approach to placing technical resources in the field to ensure its products are supported where they need to be supported — on the job site,” Crouch noted. “This type of support has been invaluable to our builder members as they work to increase efficiency and improve performance in the building process.”

DuPont™ Tyvek® will be displaying its products and services during the International Builders’ Show this week at booth W4071.
