The EIFS Industry Members Association announced that Atlas Molded Products has joined the association as an associate member.

“We are very pleased that Atlas is joining EIMA,” said Steve Smithwick, the 2022/2024 president of EIMA and president of Master Wall, Inc. “Atlas is the nation’s largest EPS manufacturer and has the most extensive polystyrene processing capabilities in North America. The rigid insulation board Atlas manufactures is an integral component of EIFS, and Atlas’ participation in EIMA will help all of us promote EIFS as the technically superior, energy-efficient, flexible and aesthetically appealing wall system that we all know it is.”

“This is great news for both EIMA and our industry,” said Stephen Sears, EIMA’s executive director and CEO. “Since the ‘I’ in EIFS stands for insulation, Atlas’ leadership in the insulation manufacturing and distribution space will benefit everyone in the EIFS value chain.”

Steve Heaton, vice president & general manager of the Atlas Molded Products division, agrees. “The advocacy and educational work that EIMA has been doing in our industry to support the growing demand for energy-efficient building solutions has been very impressive,” he said. “We are looking forward to being a part of EIMA and working together to further support EIFS industry initiatives.”

EIMA’s newest member will join ADFORS Saint-Gobain, Clark Dietrich Building Systems, Dow, Rockwool, Wacker and Wind-Lock as associate members of EIMA.
