Over 25 years ago, Rubbermaid settled on Maryville, Tenn. for a new plant location. With three already successful installations of FiberTite at other locations in Ohio, Texas, and Arizona, Rubbermaid selected the company once again. Summit BSR, located approximately an hour away in Bristol, Tenn., already had the experienced needed for the 360,000-square-foot installation. And the facility managers have not been disappointed with their selection.
“In the over 25 years of performance, the facility manager recently noted that this roof has required less than an hour a year of maintenance, a living testament to life cycle cost,” said Neil Hutchins, Executive Vice President of Summit BSR Roofing. “One of the secrets to this low level of maintenance is the owner installed a roof hatch with key to help control traffic.”
Still owned today by Newell Rubbermaid, the building underwent an additional expansion in 1997, which included a new roof. Both the original installation and the addition are still performing.
“Our team at Summit BSR is committed to quality, and FiberTite has the quality we, and our customers, expect out of a roofing membrane,” said Jim Riden, President of Summit BSR. “I worked on one of the first installations of FiberTite back in the early 1980s, and the quality is still just as high today as it was over 25 years ago. It’s absolutely the best single ply sheet on the market.”
Summit BSR is a commercial roofing contracting company based in Bristol, Tenn., with a major branch office and warehouse in Mt. Holly, N.C. Summit has been installing superior single ply roof membranes for over 30 years. Please visit www.summitbsr.com for more information.
