Owens Corning becomes part of Genesis Alliance
As part of this Alliance, Owens Corning Insulations Systems will be sold directly by Genesis and its licensees and be an integrated part of their structural building solution. Genesis and Owens Corning have agreed to pool their sales, marketing and technical resources to drive integrated Genesis light-gauge steel building structures and Owens Corning Insulation Systems into the residential and commercial markets.
Starting immediately, KML Building Solutions, an affiliate Genesis partner focused on the Ontario, Canada market, will deliver Owens Corning products as part of its structural building solution.
International markets will also benefit from this Alliance as Genesis customers obtain access to leading insulation products required for cavity wall frame construction. All Genesis global partners and all customers of Genesis Export Solutions will obtain access to Owens Corning insulation products. This will ensure that cavity wall construction and required products to complete Genesis framed buildings are available to markets around the world.
In order to create a more integrated work environment at its Granville, Ohio, Science and Technology Center, Owens Corning recently completed a site Integration Project. The site was formally re-dedicated in August by CEO Dave Brown and Science and Technology Vice President Frank O’Brien Bernini.
In other Owens Corning news, the integration project, kicked off more than a year ago, moved most of the site’s 375 employees, and their lab/work areas, into one complex on the west side of the facility. The project also included the addition of a new cafeteria, providing employees with a space to meet and share thoughts, ideas and opportunities with one another.
