NIA Announces the 2021 Premier Industry Manufacturers

March 19, 2021—The National Insulation Association (NIA) is proud to honor the winners of the 2021 Premier Industry Manufacturer Awards, which were announced in conjunction with NIA’s Virtual Spring Summit member event, March 16–18, 2021.

The 2021 Premier Industry Manufacturers are:
Johns Manville
Owens Corning

This award was first presented in 2019 to recognize and distinguish exemplary insulation manufacturing companies as industry advocates and leaders. Available exclusively to NIA member companies, the award rewards Associate (Manufacturer) members for their actions, which demonstrate leadership, commitment, and support to the mechanical insulation industry and NIA. Each of the winning companies participated in activities and actions that support NIA and the industry. Through this program, NIA’s Associate members demonstrate to customers that their company is a recognized leader amongst their peers.

“Congratulations to these three leading companies!” said Michele M. Jones, NIA’s Executive Vice President/CEO. “Especially this year, these Associate members led by example and found innovative ways to promote the industry and NIA. We look forward to recognizing them in person later this year at our Annual Convention and promoting them all throughout 2021.”

NIA will honor these award-winning companies at its 63rd Annual Convention, taking place October 26–28, 2021, at the MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
