InterCoast Working in Partnership with Brock White Construction Materials

March 26, 2014 | Blog 

Brock White Canada Company LLC a major distributor of Tech-Crete Concrete Faced Insulated Wall & Roof Panels have just drawn to a close a mini tradeshow called BW Connect. BW Connect offers product training for technical staff and salespeople throughout Western Canada. All of the offices operated by Brock White Canada were represented. The 2014 trade show was a huge success and InterCoast is extremely proud to be working with Brock White to deliver this superior product to the construction industry.

BW Connect? Are you wondering where that name came from? Simple, its short for Brock White Connect, which is exactly what happens at the conference, people connect over improving products and the way we use them with the purpose if sustainability.

Conceived in 2013, when Brock White acquired the assets of Steels Industrial Products, more than doubling the size of the company’s Canadian presence in the marketplace. With the growth of the company and success of the first event, it was duplicated in 2014 in both Canada and the US. Here in Western Canada the event was held February 19-21, 2014 at the Sheraton Guildford.

What a tremendous opportunity for the staff at Brock White to meet with vendors and truly understand what those vendors bring to the customers. The ability to meet and share ideas and learn more about what is current in the industry is invaluable to developing relationships and partnerships long term and continued growth in green products.
