Firestone – Another World Class Brand from Alumasc
Market leading building product specialist Alumasc has further strengthened its portfolio of world class roofing products by becoming a Commercial and Industrial Authorised Distributor for Firestone RubberGard® EPDM and UltraPly™ TPO single ply roofing systems in England, Wales and Scotland.
The introduction of Firestone into the Alumasc range reaffirms its strategy of providing premium, high performance products and systems, allowing the continued supply of unrivalled waterproofing solutions from a single source.
Firestone Building Products entered the commercial roofing industry in 1980 building on its success and experience in rubber polymer technology. Three decades later, over one billion square metres of Firestone’s sustainable roofing membranes have been installed on rooftops worldwide. In line with Alumasc’s continued commitment to sustainable building practices, the new products have a limited environmental impact during manufacture, are highly recyclable and offer low life-cycle costs.
Firestone RubberGard® EPDM and UltraPly™ TPO offer robust, performance-led solutions which sit perfectly alongside Alumasc’s well-respected Derbigum roofing membranes and Hydrotech 6125 structural waterproofing system. Firestone membranes are also ideal to be used in combination with Alumasc’s ZinCo extensive green roof systems.
The Firestone range will form part of the Alumasc Waterproofing offer and will benefit from its own dedicated sales team. To augment the current sales force and maximise the specification opportunities in London and the South East a further experienced single ply specification professional will be recruited in what is a key, strategic area of the country.
Further support for the Firestone EPDM and TPO ranges will also be provided via a technical support team with over 40 years combined waterproofing experience.
This is an exciting development for both Alumasc and Firestone offering both companies substantial opportunities in the UK to expand the market share for RubberGard® EPDM and UltraPly™ TPO from Firestone, the leading international manufacturer and supplier of two of the most tried and tested single ply products available in the UK market and globally.
Alumasc’s Managing Director Robert Littlewood comments: “We are thrilled to be adding such impressive roofing solutions to our existing portfolio. Alumasc has a reputation for supplying comprehensive and relevant solutions which are designed to meet the demands of contemporary design, whilst also addressing the environmental concerns surrounding our industry. Firestone’s performance record as a leading manufacturer of sustainable rubber membranes worldwide, can serve only to reinforce Alumasc’s position in the UK market.”
