Malarkey Roofing Products president retires


Malarkey Roofing Products,® Portland, Ore., has announced the retirement of its president, Gregory B. Malarkey. Dale Rushing, formerly COO, has been named president of the company.

“Malarkey Roofing Products has long maintained a focus on sustainability in terms of our products, the planet and our people,” Malarkey says. “As president, my company stewardship involved succession planning for future generations. Now, after four decades in the roofing industry and several years providing leadership, I believe the company is positioned, staffed and supported to excel beyond my own vision.”

Malarkey is a veteran of the roofing industry and has held leadership roles within the Asphalt Institute, Asphalt Roofing Environmental Council and Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association. He is the only two-time winner of the Outstanding Service Award from the Western States Roofing Contractors Association.

Rushing joined Malarkey Roofing Products as COO in 2020. He came to the company with more than 20 years of experience in roofing products and leadership roles overseeing operations, finance and administration.

“The Malarkey family has established a strong foundation in the roofing industry,” Rushing says. “Greg’s leadership is evidence of that strength, dedication and innovation. It has been a remarkable opportunity to work with and learn from Greg directly over the past few years. Despite how challenging those years may have been, our team has propelled the company into new realms of success. With our recent acquisition by Holcim, we are positioned to grow even faster and further than ever before. I am honored to be at the helm as it happens.”

The BILCO Co. prioritizes sustainability

The BILCO Co., New Haven, Conn., is taking steps to prioritize environmental sustainability by improving processes at its facilities.

Reducing waste by making packaging recyclable, developing returnable packaging and regrinding scrap to use in products are among the company’s sustainable initiatives. The improved processes reduce waste within the supply chain, save money and contribute to a more sustainable future.

The BILCO Co. implemented 100% recyclable packaging for its Bil-Guard® 2.0 roof hatch railing system at its facilities. The packaging now is made solely of cardboard, which is completely recyclable. In addition, by redesigning large boxes and reconfiguring the way the product fits in the box, the company eliminated foam from its packaging materials.

Sarnafil® brand turns 60

Sika Sarnafil, Canton, Mass., is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its flagship Sarnafil-branded membrane.

In 1958, a company called Sarna was formed in Switzerland to develop polymeric products, and in 1962, company chemists developed the first PVC membrane reinforced with fabric, leading to several industrial applications that included a growing roofing and waterproofing membrane market. This tear-resistant PVC membrane was patented and trademarked “Sarnafil.”

“Sixty years ago, we started with one mission in mind, to produce the industry’s longest lasting, most resilient PVC roofing and waterproofing membrane around,” says Sebastien Godard, executive vice president of Sika Sarnafil USA. “Today that mission is stronger than ever!”

Owens Corning receives award

Owens Corning, Toledo, Ohio, has received the Women’s Choice Award® for a fifth consecutive year. Recognizing Owens Corning as “America’s Most Recommended™” shingle manufacturer, the award and accompanying seal are based on a national survey asking American women to select brands they would highly recommend to family and friends.

The award reflects Owens Corning’s ongoing efforts to support women in making the best roofing choices for themselves and their families. As home improvement decision makers and style influencers, women value the recommendations and referrals of other women. According to the Women’s Choice Award organization, more than 90% of female consumers value the opinion of others when making purchasing decisions. The Women’s Choice seal represents a trusted, third-party validation reflecting the confidence of women to choose Owens Corning Roofing products for their homes.

“It’s important to note the findings come from women respondents selected by an independent, third-party source and not from an Owens Corning customer list. The respondents objectively judged our brand based on the resources and the wide range of beautiful shingles we make available to them,” says Sue Burkett, market manager for Owens Corning. “Owens Corning Roofing recognizes and celebrates the influence of women when it comes to exterior style decisions, and this award tells us the breadth of design tools we offer are helping inspire women in their shingle selection process.”
