MBI Trade Show April 5th-April 8th Bonita Springs, FL

Barrier President and CEO, Dr. Michael Huddy, PhD; along with our partners Mule-Hide Products, and ABC Supply Co., participated in the Modular Building Institutes annual trade show last week. The show was held in Bonita Springs, FL on April 5th through the 8th. According to Dr. Huddy, the show was very well attended. Participants, including key decision makers and owners, were interested and had a broader awareness this year of the FR Deck Panel (manufactured with Blazeguard technology) and its benefits to commercial modular roof deck applications.

In 2007, the commercial modular industry grew by 8% overall (a positive trend in comparison to the negative media attention to the residential housing market). The industry expects that same growth rate, at a minimum, this year.

Barrier experienced double digit growth in the commercial modular sector last year as the FR Deck Panel remained the choice for many and with several new manufacturers making the switch. We are optimistic at the anticipated overall growth in the industry for 2008 as well.

Here are a couple pictures from the show...
