Florida manufacturer NuAir has handed the reins for all of its new construction installation over to Pro-Build, a building materials supplier, in a strategic partnership that aims to offer building professionals consistency in both products and installation. Starting in September, Pro-Build will tout NuAir as its preferred manufacturer in Florida, investing significant resources into promoting the Tampa-based window and door producer.

“The decision to partner with Pro-Build was made with our valued customers in mind,” says J. Scott Henderson, president of NuAir. “We strive for complete customer satisfaction with our products and services, and we believe the Pro-Build partnership will ensure that every installation of a NuAir product is done with care and craftsmanship.”

Henderson adds that divesting of installation services of its new construction products will allow the company to focus on longer-term product development, including its plans to introduce a new line of vinyl windows in the coming year, along with other high-performance products geared at meeting the new Florida energy code. “With Pro-Build handling installation, the NuAir team will focus on what we do best—produce top quality windows and doors,” says Henderson.

Pro-Build supplies builders with a full line of building materials, as well as installation service on windows, exterior doors, siding and interior trim packages. The company goes to market as a single supplier, as it also offers project management.

“At Pro-Build, we are longtime admirers of NuAir products. They are true experts in the window and door market, and we look forward to working with them,” notes Mike Mendlik, market manager at Pro-Build East. The company will feature NuAir lines in advertising campaigns and will update NuAir merchandising displays at Pro-Build locations throughout Florida.

All current NuAir installation customers will be transitioned to Pro-Build over the course of the coming months, company officials note.

With 500 locations in 40 states, Pro-Build says it’s the nation’s largest supplier of building materials to professional builders. It got its start in 1997 when Fidelity Capital acquired Strober Building Supply. Since that time, it has added numerous other operations, including those of Lanoga Corp. and Hope Lumber.
