A first-of-its-kind award was presented to TAMKO Building Products, Inc. for more than 50 years of dedication to product safety and compliance by UL, a globally recognized third-party research and testing company.

UL presented the “50-years Dedication to Safety” award to TAMKO on February 11 at the International Roofing Expo in Nashville, Tennessee in honor of UL’s 125th anniversary. This year, TAMKO also celebrates a significant milestone of 75 years in business. The award was presented to TAMKO for its long, continuous relationship with UL and its focus on product safety, as evidenced by its product certifications.

“We are grateful to be a partner with TAMKO for over half of a century,” said Christopher Hasbrook, vice president and general manager of the Building & Life Safety Technologies division at UL. “We are privileged to have TAMKO’s loyalty, dedication to safety and continued support of our mission – ‘Working for a Safer World.’”

UL conducts product testing for manufacturers who choose to obtain third-party compliance certifications for their products, and UL has conducted product evaluations and certifications for fire, wind resistance and impact performance tests on TAMKO products for 57 years. TAMKO was also UL’s first ever roofing customer to receive a supplementary UL Evaluation Report, which demonstrates product compliance with building code requirements through technical evidence.

“We are committed to safety at TAMKO, for our employees and customers, which is why we seek to provide safe, high quality products,” said Stephen McNally, vice president of sales and marketing. “TAMKO is honored to have earned this significant achievement in product safety and compliance.”
