EIFS Industry Members Association Board Approves New Strategic Plan


The result is transformational. Representing the wallcovering known as EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems) since its introduction in the United States, EIMA spent its first 40 years largely as a technical trade association and has developed technical, training, installation, and design standards for use by architects, designers, and code bodies.

Now that the EIFS is an established, codified, tested and proven coating system, the association will maintain its technical focus and expand its scope to include all aspects of the industry value chain.

The new plan includes a core objective for the industry and three interrelated strategic initiatives. The board also approved a new governance structure.

Board members unanimously support this new EIMA 2.0. Steve Smithwick of Master Wall, Inc., president of EIMA, exclaims, “The timing is right. With architects and designers looking for energy efficient and architecturally flexible products, there are great opportunities for our industry.

Serene Massoudmember of the Dow Board of Directors, says, “EIMA’s new plan is a perfect fit with what we are doing. Building materials need durability, impermeability and high-volume protection to cope with the forces of nature, and our products are crucial inputs for this industry.”

Darryl SmallBoard member of Gypsum Management & Supply, Inc. says, “This plan offers great opportunities for EIFS and EIMA, and I urge everyone involved in the industry to participate.”

Stephen SearCEO of EIMA, said, “I would like to thank the aforementioned members as well as representatives from the Boards of Directors of Sika, Master Builders Solutions, Dryvit, Sto Corp, Saint-Gobain-Adfors and L&W Supply. The new vision of EIMA is due to the members’ work and commitment. Our future is indeed bright.

Founded in 1981, EIMA is a 501(c)(6) trade association comprised of leading manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, applicators and architects involved in the North American Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems (EIFS) industry.
