James Hardie teamed with 84 Lumber to encourage the use of U.S.-made and sourced building materials and products.
James Hardie was contacted by 84 Lumber to participate in the program a few months prior to the announcement of the initiative on Jan. 23 at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
James Hardie says its products are made at one of seven manufacturing facilities across the United States. James Hardie sources raw materials from within 500 miles of each plant to further reduce its carbon footprint.
“James Hardie is proud to be a part of 'We Build American' initiative," said Rob Rugg, director of strategic accounts. "We strongly believe in building more sustainable homes, neighborhoods and materials by leveraging local, regional and national resources. The building products industry has shown much resilience in this country, and we’re proud to be working with great partners at 'We Build American' to continue this tradition and recent momentum in the coming years."
