SBCA Innovation Grant

In an effort to cultivate innovation in the structural building components and framing industry, the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) created the SBCA Innovation Grant in 2023.

What is SBCA?

Established in 1983, the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) is the only international trade association representing manufacturers of structural building components (roof trusses, wall panels, and floor trusses.)  Its membership also includes truss plate suppliers, framers, original equipment manufacturers and resellers, computer software companies, lumber suppliers, builders, and professional individuals in the fields of engineering, marketing, and management.

What is BCMC?

Since its inception in 1980, the objective of SBCA’s Building Component Manufacturers Conference (BCMC) has been to educate, inform and encourage the growth of structural building component manufacturing. It has become the trusted venue for component manufacturers to learn about the latest ideas, equipment, products, and trends throughout their entire supply chain. This annual tradeshow includes a dynamic exhibit floor with machinery demonstrations, educational opportunities, and the chance to enjoy the camaraderie of an industry that spans generations.
