Duo-Gard Industries Inc. has announced the appointment of Eco Spec Inc. as the representative for its translucent canopy and wall systems in the central and southern United States.
Headquartered in Canton
MI, Duo-Gard is a leader in the design, engineering, fabrication and
installation of translucent polycarbonate glazing systems for commercial,
industrial and residential applications. With offices in Atlanta, Chattanooga,
Chicago and Montgomery, Eco Spec is a prominent manufacturer’s representative
firm. Both companies are involved in promoting energy efficient,
environmentally friendly construction products that contribute to
sustainability and affordability.
Both firms work closely
with the architectural, design and engineering communities. “Eco Spec enjoys a
talented sales and support staff which brings vast knowledge of the
construction industry and its ever-evolving advances,” said David Miller,
Duo-Gard’s president. “They’re well-positioned to educate the industry about
the advantages of Duo-Gard’s contributions.”
Those contributions in
award-winning daylighting systems which integrate translucent polycarbonate
technology provide “a perfect fit as an extension of our line,” said Dewayne
Thomas CSI CCPR, senior principal of Eco Spec.
Thomas said Eco Spec’s efforts will place special emphasis on education: “Many architects aren’t yet aware of the cost savings achieved with translucent polycarbonate systems in today’s canopies, curtain walls and other daylighting applications.” He said this benefit, coupled with the exceptional aesthetics and design flexibility of the current generation of polycarbonates, makes it an attractive alternative.
Miller said Eco Spec’s
“seasoned and knowledgeable” people will initiate and expand the close relationships
that are critical to success in today’s competitive construction market.
representatives for Duo-Gard are Aubrey Larcheveaux in Alabama and Mississippi;
Dewayne Thomas in Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee; Melvin Smith in Georgia, North
Carolina, South Carolina; Troy Small in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois.
