PARSIPPANY, NJ (August 24, 2015) – Already North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, the acquisition of Quest Construction Products (QCP) will mean more growth for GAF. The purchase is expected to extend GAF’s already steady development. QCP is a former division of Quest Specialty Chemicals, the largest merchant of roof-coating products and fluid-applied roofing supplies in North America. The acquisition will position GAF as a strong player in pavement and vertical surfaces as well as the environmentally-conscious and economical areas of commercial roofing.
QCP has established relationships with many leading industry brands which GAF now has at their disposal. Notable brands acquired with the transaction are Hydro-stop liquid membrane products, Streetbond pavement materials, and United Coatings.
Additionally, GAF will instantly become one of the leading companies in economical and easy-to-use roofing materials due to QCP’s widely-used and applauded energy-efficient solutions. Adding these to the GAF catalogue will enhance their technology offerings as well as their commercial solar options.
The move also means growth for the brands GAF has acquired and the contractors who use their materials. Bob Tafaro, president and CEO of GAF said, “We have acquired excellent brands and will provide an enhanced platform for their growth. QCP’s differentiated and innovative products will also boost our commercial business’s competitive advantage by offering a broader range of solutions to the market. We are empowering our contractors with the products they need to grow their businesses while strengthening our relationships with strategic building owners.”
Since 1886, GAF has been providing roofing materials to its network of contractors. Now the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, GAF offers a complete catalogue of steep-slope and commercial roofing solutions. Committed to quality, expertise and simple solutions, GAF has seen great success while focused on social responsibility. They offer lifetime limited warranties on many of their shingles and remain dedicated to developing products that reduce energy consumption. They also provide education and training to contractors and distributors on installation, sales, and management to help build their individual businesses.
GAF is committed to maintaining their leadership role in the commercial roofing industry and the addition of QCP’s resources, relationships, and team is expected to firmly plant GAF as a frontrunner in the roofing industry.
