·3-min read

TOLEDO, Ohio, June 28, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Insulation business of Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) has been named a National Preferred Partner by David Weekley Homes in its 18th annual National Preferred Partner Survey. This is the 10th consecutive year Owens Corning Insulation has been recognized by the privately-held U.S. homebuilder.

The National Preferred Partner Survey measures all trade partners and their channel partners for world-class excellence in quality and customer service. Owens Corning ranked among the top 12 manufacturers to earn the National Preferred Partner status from a total of 138 companies evaluated.

"In a year of strong demand, our plants and supply chain teams have worked diligently to provide our customers with quality material and excellent service," said Owens Corning North American Building Insulation Vice President and General Manager Mike Swift. "Earning this honor for the 10th consecutive year from David Weekley Homes recognizes the strength of our brands, building trade professionals, channel partners and employees."

"2021 was another unique year," said John Schiegg, Vice President of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes. "Record numbers of home sales, a global pandemic continued, and significant supply chain disruptions have resulted in the perfect storm – demand that far exceeds supply. We are so grateful that National Preferred Partners like Owens Corning have provided their expertise and guidance. They have made it possible for us to continue to provide the best in design, choice and service to our customers, despite the challenges."

Consistent with the company’s focus on quality and service, Owens Corning Insulation successfully launched PINK Next Gen Fiberglas insulation with advanced fiber technology in 2021. PINK Next Gen is certified as made with wind-powered electricity, with high recycled content1. Beyond helping trade professionals achieve faster, more efficient installations, the latest fiberglass insulation product line supports the company’s commitment to provide long-term, sustainable solutions.
