SPRA welcomes first Affiliate member

The Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA) announced the launch of a new Affiliate Category. This announcement came close on the heels of other announcements including the launch of new branding, a new website, new installer membership and new online training and assessment tool.

Piers Dormeyer, vice president of sales at EagleView, said: “Becoming SPRA’s first Affiliate member can open many doors for us as we begin our transition into the UK. We see a long-lasting partnership between EagleView and SPRA and we’re looking forward to working closely with the Association to give roofers in the UK the technology they need to succeed.”

Jim Hooker, SPRA technical director, said: “We have long known about companies such as EagleView, who are implementing technology into the single ply roofing process. The technological innovations they’re known for will assist our members in saving time and money, while also creating a safer roofing environment – a crucial component in our sector.

SPRA is always seeking to improve quality, and we see Affiliate membership as a way of ensuring that a single ply roof can carry the SPRA quality logo from start to finish. We hope that by taking these steps, the decision by clients to specify a whole SPRA system will become the norm, and we will see less problems in future with roofs that have been ‘value-engineered’.”
