Trade Groups Form Coalition to Support Steel Construction
 
Four trade associations representing the steel industry have joined forces to promote the use of cold-formed steel framing in construction. The Steel Stud Manufacturers Association, Steel Framing Industry Association, Certified Steel Stud Association and the Steel Market Development Institute have established a coalition to address market threats initiated by the lumber and masonry industries in recent years, particularly in the mid-rise construction market.

The coalition developed a plan to work together on research, code advocacy and promotion of the cold-formed steel framing industry. The coalition’s mission is to increase the demand for cold-formed steel in the construction sector.

“The cold-formed steel framing market is an important one for our steel company investors, and we are committed to working with like-minded construction partners to increase demand,” says Robert J. Wills, SMDI’s vice president of construction. “We applaud the leadership and vision exhibited by our partners in this collaborative effort, and we look forward to working with them to achieve our objectives.”
