ASSA ABLOY Joins The Forums Industry Group
ASSA ABLOY’s joining of The Forums industry group is designed to foster industry growth and to meet the challenges the building trades face today.
NEW HAVEN, Conn.—mindful MATERIALS (mM) recently announced the official launch of three building industry groups, known as The Forums, and ASSA ABLOY is a participating member.
The Forums represent owners and over 80 individuals from more than 40 leading companies across the manufacturing, architecture, design, engineering, and construction industries.
The three groups that were formed this year are the Owners Forum, the AEC Forum, and the Manufacturers Forum.
“The Forums are uniquely exciting as an industry initiative because they are designed for cross-collaboration,” says Amy Musanti, director of sustainable building solutions at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, a catalyst member of the Manufacturers Forum.
“Each Forum will produce individual accomplishments and resources for their sector, but together we’ll be able to solve larger challenges as part of the materials decision flow. It’s about breaking out of our silos to support collective action as an ecosystem.”
Other Manufacturers Forum members include Armstrong World Industries, CertainTeed, Construction Specialties, GAF, Humanscale, Kingspan, Legrand, MAPEI, Mecho, nCompass, Patcraft, Saint-Gobain, Shaw Contract, and Superior Essex. These groups offer participants a neutral, precompetitive space to navigate mutual challenges and help accelerate meaningful action by others in the industry.
“These Forums are the building industry’s collective opportunity to leverage holistic materials leadership and learnings for the benefit of all,” adds Steve Kooy, mM board chair.
“It’s time to stop redoing work and start aligning to have more impact. Together.”
