NGA JOINS NFRC, FURTHER UNIFYING INDUSTRY
WASHINGTON, DC (July 9, 2008) – The National Glass Association (NGA) announced today that it has joined the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), an organization committed to fair, accurate and credible energy ratings of fenestration products.
“The NGA has joined the NFRC at a time when industry unity is paramount,” said David Walker, NGA vice president of association services. “We believe it is extremely important for our membership to be represented at the NFRC’s table to participate in discussions and developments that impact the residential and commercial fenestration and glazing industries.”
A significant portion of the NGA’s 4,000 corporate members operate within these industry segments, either in whole or in part. The NFRC has taken on an important role with respect to energy efficiency issues affecting these companies, and the NGA has been vocal on developments as they occur.
“We look forward to being a more active voice within the NFRC on behalf of our membership,” continued Walker. “We have great respect for the work they are doing, and we are pleased to join with them in a unified effort to advance the competitiveness and growth of the industry.”
