SBCA 2022 Annual Report
2022 was a remarkable year for SBCA.
Message to SBCA Membership
We launched Digital QC, a mobile software platform that will not only revolutionize the way our industry conducts quality control (QC) inspections, but also put robust data sets into the hands of managers so they can make informed decisions about where and how to improve production processes. We feel so strongly about the value of Digital QC that we are offering it for free to all component manufacturer (CM) members.
We reached our ambitious goal of 800 members. While consolidation was responsible for 26 member companies becoming part of other member companies, SBCA’s clear value to the industry attracted 135 new members to the association in just one year. This growth was the result of a concerted effort by the Membership Committee and SBCA staff to reach out to non-members and share all that we have to offer them.
We developed closer working relationships and active collaborations up and down our supply chain. Our work with the National Framers Council is fostering great conversations about how CMs and framers can succeed as partners in the offsite construction industry. Building closer lines of communication with the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), International Code Council (ICC), and U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), has created opportunities to dramatically increase the use of our industry’s products.
Nowhere was all this success more evident than at BCMC 2022 in Columbus, Ohio. We witnessed a more than 20 percent increase in attendance over 2021, and over 800 people (a BCMC record) showed up to see our keynote speaker, Emmitt Smith. The energy on the exhibition floor and in the educational sessions was palpable and encouraging for our industry’s future.
These successes are all noteworthy, but they are only just a portion of what SBCA accomplished in 2022. This annual report provides a thorough look at all of SBCA’s activities and initiatives over the past year and hints at some of the things we are excited about in 2023. If you have any questions or feedback, we encourage you to reach out to us - we’d love to have a conversation with you.
