ATAS National Sales Manager Receives Award

Mark Bus, national sales manager of ATAS International, received a Metal Construction Association Triumph Award at METALCON in Baltimore.  He was recognized as being someone who demonstrates excellence, creativity and initiative in his or her business or profession.
 
Jim Bush, vice president of Sales and Marketing states, “I have had the pleasure of watching Mark mature over the years to a young and emerging professional; not only within ATAS but also in the industry.  He has earned the respect of the ATAS sales team, as well as peers and management, through hard work and a sound decision making process.  Mark is also aware of industry initiatives and association activities and brings those into daily communications with staff and customers.”
 
An ATAS distributor, Allan Brock of Brock Associates, says, “During my forty year tenure in the commercial metal roofing and siding industry, I have rarely crossed paths with a young professional like Mark Bus.  I have seen Mark evolve from an inside technical sales person, to a regional product representative, to management.  At each level, he radiated professionalism along with product and technical knowledge.  It’s been a pleasure dealing with an individual as capable as Mark.”
 
Robert J. Bailey, AIA, CSI, CCS, LEED AP, specifications and constructability specialist with IKM Inc., also recommended Mark Bus for this award.  “Mark makes it a point to understand the people who are specifying and purchasing ATAS products.  As a new product rep in western Pennsylvania, he became involved in various CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) chapters.  It was clear to me that Mark knew in order to be prepared for a leadership role in ATAS, he first needed to understand the industry itself and establish important contacts and relationships there.  Mark is an example for other young sales professionals.”

Brock Associates Partners with Roofinox to Sell Roofing and Rollforming Products

“When Follansbee closed its doors, removing its TCS II from availability a few years ago, it left a serious hole in the market for architectural stainless steel,” says Allan Brock, president of Brock Associates of Pittsburgh, Pa. “Architects still need TCS-II and many are still specifying it for their designs. So we decided to satisfy this market by bringing Roofinox into our product line.”

Brock Associates is now sourcing material for its commercial roofing and siding/ACM applications from Roofinox America, the U.S. arm of Roofinox International, Europe’s supplier of quality stainless steel specifically designed for roofing and rollforming.

Allan Brock says: “Over recent years, we have seen the market for metal in roofing, siding and paintable flashing, increasing, especially in the high-end applications, in our market area of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, New Jersey and Virginia. When we saw an opportunity to re-introduce stainless into the market with Roofinox, we went for it, and we have not been disappointed.”

“We are extremely pleased about Brock’s decision to go with Roofinox,” notes Dave Rowe, vice president of Sales, Roofinox America. “Roofinox Tin Plated stainless offers a great replacement for the old TSC II, along with a rich architectural appearance.

He continues: “The good news, is it is 20 percent more malleable than any other stainless products on the market making it easier than ever to roll-form. The strength and malleability of our product coupled with our unique surface textures provides our clients with a desirable product.”

Roofinox America has been providing Roofinox Classic, Roofinox Plus .0157 and Roofinox tin-plated (Terne-coated) material to American fabricators, roofing contractors and metal roofing distributors for more than two years.
