LMC’s Rachel Hoops, B2B & Component Sales Manager, has joined the Board of Directors of the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA). In her new role, Hoops will provide a broad market perspective to the components industry and bring a fresh set of eyes to tackle the challenges faced by the industry.

As an advocate for component shops at LMC, Hoops is excited to join fellow board members. She will bring her experience in the LBM industry, as well as her fresh perspective as a relative newcomer to the wider building industry.

In recent years, the construction industry has seen a significant rise in the utilization of

components. This trend has been especially prominent among lumberyards who are seeking to connect with component manufacturers. Hoops has identified opportunities to educate LMC dealers on the advantages of these building elements, most recently collaborating with the SBCA to promote the use of open web floor trusses.

“My role at LMC has allowed me to successfully implement outside-the-box solutions that have benefited our co-operative,” Hoops said. “I am excited to bring this same fresh perspective to the SBCA and contribute to the growth and success of the components industry.”

Established in 1983, the SBCA represents manufacturers of structural building components. Its membership also includes truss plate suppliers, original equipment manufacturers and resellers, computer software companies, lumber suppliers, builders, and professional individuals in the fields of engineering, marketing, and management.
