Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has worked toward one vision: to create a world without breast cancer. Continental Building Products announced that it stands by this vision and will support Susan G. Komen and its mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
One of Continental’s core beliefs is the importance of giving back to the communities in which its employees live and work. Whether donating wallboard to local charities' building efforts or providing low-cost solar energy to residents near its Buchanan, NY plant, Continental strives to always live its BISON values: Bold, Inclusive, Steadfast, Open-minded and Nimble.
In keeping with this mission, Continental is working towards partnering with Komen in the summer of 2019 through sales of its Weather Defense exterior sheathing. The exterior sheathing will feature a new Bison Board Weather Defense logo in pink, along with Susan G. Komen’s pink Running Ribbon on a white background.
“Breast cancer will touch one in eight women during their lifetime and is something that impacted my family,” says Jay Bachmann, Continental’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am proud that Continental will play a part in supporting the battle against this disease in partnership with Susan G. Komen.”
