S-5! Receives 2022 Metal Building Manufacturers Association Awards

S-5!, the original inventor of engineered, manufactured, metal roof attachments, today was awarded the 2022 Gold Level Industry Advocate Award for outstanding service, participation and support of the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) and the 2022 MBMA Innovation Project Award.

Accepting on behalf of S-5! were CEO and Founder Rob Haddock, his sons Shawn Haddock and Dustin Haddock along with S-5!’s solar expert, Mark Gies at the MBMA annual meeting and awards presentation on Dec. 7 in Ft. Myers, Florida. S-5! was awarded for its contributions of volunteer time, expertise and advocacy of MBMA and the entire metal building industry.

Among the many companies who were presented with gold, silver and bronze awards, S-5! earned the number one spot at the gold level and was recognized for exceptional commitment to promoting and enhancing MBMA initiatives, including participation in MBMA committees, advocacy efforts to enhance the metal building systems industry, attendance at MBMA educational and promotional events and safety program participation.

S-5! was also awarded the MBMA Innovation Project Award. Gies submitted an educational awareness campaign project focused on “Metal Roofing—the Perfect Platform for Solar Installations, Associated Costs Savings & Long-Term Return-on-Investment (ROI).”

“The main benefit of this project is added growth to the overall metal construction and metal roofing industry,” said Gies. “As contractors, building owners and all project stakeholders become more aware and educated about the benefits of metal roofing as a solar PV platform and as they understand the initial costs, lifetime costs and ROI and internal rate of return (IRR), they can make better choices about utilizing metal in construction and in roofing. And MBMA member businesses will benefit from this market growth.”

“We are honored to receive these awards and to be part of such an instrumental group of industry specialists and an organization that provides much-needed resources to those who work in metal building systems,” said Rob Haddock.
