The Modular Building Institute's Annual Conference

This past week was the MBI (Modular Building Institute) annual show out in California. This is really THE biggest show for the commercial modular industry. Our favorite modular customer, Mule-Hide Products, was happy to report that they have been a sponsor of the show and attended for 15 straight years. (Next year is the 25th anniversary of the MBI.) They are now seen as the leading roofing supplier to the modular industry. Walt Griffin, National Program Manager for Modular Business at Mule-Hide said: “The FR Deck Panel (a Blazeguard product) is receiving great reviews from its current manufacturing and leasing customers. This is contagious for customers who haven’t yet switched over and has created a great deal of curiosity regarding what they are missing. The many leads generated this past week will most assuredly translate into new and increasing business.”

Barrier’s own Mike Huddy also attended the show. Here’s his response: “This is one of my favorite shows. The audience is very targeted and nearly 70% of the total commercial modular manufacturing capacity is represented every year. It is definitely a must go show for us and this key segment of our business. I enjoy working with the professionals from Mule-Hide and being able to support their discussions on the FR Deck Panel. We have definitely become a product of choice for fire protection in the commercial modular roofing application.”
