Siderise – the manufacturer of passive fire and acoustic insulation solutions for the UK and overseas markets – has joined the Construction Products Association (CPA) as a new Affiliate Member. With a fundamental ethos to provide class leading façade fire protection, and interior noise control solutions, Siderise will provide fresh insight and expertise to many of the CPA’s key work streams and priority areas.
The new association marks a more formalised working relationship between the CPA and Siderise, after an already productive partnership in the form of Siderise CEO Adam Turk’s role in the development of the recent Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI). Adam is the Chairman of the CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group – set up to put the code together and address the challenge for manufacturers to provide product information that is Clear, Accurate, Up-to-date, Accessible and Unambiguous.
With a strong focus on building and fire safety, as well as a keen desire to get stuck into the skills agenda and the CPA’s various digitalisation programmes, Siderise promises to be a valued new member that will help drive forward some of the Association’s key objectives and priorities.
Commenting on the new partnership, CPA Chief Executive Peter Caplehorn, said: “It’s wonderful to welcome Siderise to the CPA Membership. Adam’s work on the CCPI has been of great importance to the construction products industry and will make a real difference to the building safety agenda. I look forward to finding further ways of using Siderise’s expertise to drive forward value-led change for the industry.”
Siderise Chief Executive, Adam Turk, said: “Becoming an affiliate member of the CPA was the natural progression for Siderise. Both of our organisations are completely aligned on the vital importance of ensuring construction product information and marketing is accurate and honest, and we share a desire to equip our industry with the right knowledge and solutions to create a safe and productive built environment for all. We are looking forward to collaborating closely with the CPA to achieve these aims.”
