Thanks to an accreditation awarded by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance Professional Certification Program (SPFA PCP), contractors can be confident that CertainTeed operates using the industry’s best practices for world-class spray foam insulation products, technical knowledge and training. CertainTeed is one of the first supplier companies in the spray polyurethane foam (SPF) industry to meet the rigorous demands of the respected professional organization’s certification program.
“We believe excellence in manufacturing the highest quality spray polyurethane foam products is just part of the equation,” says Ken Forsythe, manager of product marketing for CertainTeed Insulation. “Education and proper installation of building materials have always been top priorities with CertainTeed. SPF insulation is one of the more technical products to master, and our SPFA PCP supplier accreditation shows our dedication to partnering with building professionals well after the product leaves the factory.”
The SPFA PCP is an internationally recognized program built for those involved in the installation of spray polyurethane foam. Covering roofing and insulation applications, the program advocates industry best practices and safety. The new SPF Supplier Company Accreditation category is designed to increase the scope of the program, to include additional organizations and individuals which are key to the SPF supply chain, and to provide further distinction for those companies that invest in their people and customers.
The standards-driven program is ISO 17024 compliant and was developed by committees of industry stakeholders in collaboration with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in addition to other federal agencies and external stakeholders. It is offered both domestically and internationally.
“This prestigious achievement signifies CertainTeed’s adherence and commitment to the SPF industry’s best practices,” says Kelly Cook Marcavage, certification director for SPFA PCP. “It is an honor to work with such a dedicated company who shares our demand for the highest of standards and utmost professionalism.”
As part of the accreditation process, select CertainTeed personnel were required to become certified as SPF Insulation Supplier Representatives through the SPFA PCP. Criteria also included supplier offered training programs for contractors and best practices/risk management program verification.
