Western Canada’s Leading Distributor of Commercial and Industrial Insulation Chooses Johns Manville as Its Mechanical Insulation Supplier
Johns Manville (JM), a Berkshire Hathaway company and leading manufacturer of premium-quality building products, today announced that it has been selected as the primary supplier to Crossroads C&I Distributors, a 46-year-old Edmonton-based distributor and fabricator of high-quality mechanical insulation products and accessories. Under the agreement, Crossroads C&I will serve as JM’s authorized full-line distributor of mechanical insulation products in Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, and Northwest Territories, handling distribution of all of JM’s pipe and equipment and air handling insulation products.
“Crossroads C&I is the service leader in their markets, and Johns Manville is fortunate to partner with a company so focused on customer satisfaction,” said Dave Skelly, director of sales for Johns Manville’s Insulation Systems business. “We are excited to establish a full-line relationship with Crossroads C&I for this important geographic region. The company’s history of success, which goes back to the early 1960s, is testament to their leadership position.”
Beginning immediately, Crossroads C&I customers will have access to the full line of JM pipe and equipment and air handling products, including Micro-Lok® HP, a high-performance pipe insulation made from rotary glass fibers bonded with a thermosetting resin. JM manufactures Micro-Lok HP at its state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Defiance, Ohio.
“As we evaluated our long-term growth plans and potential mechanical insulation suppliers, we concluded that a partnership with Johns Manville was the obvious choice,” said Bill Haun, president of Crossroads C&I. “JM’s product line breadth, history of innovation and reputation for quality and service are a perfect strategic fit.”
