Plymouth, MN – 14 Oct, 2015 – Flynn Dalco Roofing & Sheet Metal of Plymouth, Minnesota, has received GAF’s most prestigious contractor award: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Flynn Dalco Roofing & Sheet Metal as one of the “elite of the elite” among commercial roofing contractors in the United States.
GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Select(TM) contractors can compete for its commercial President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a commercial roofing contractor must demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Property Owner Protection, and Installer Training.
Flynn Dalco Roofing & Sheet Metal has been a GAF Master Select(TM) commercial roofing contractor since 2002. To become a Master Select(TM) contractor–a status that less than 1% of roofing contractors nationwide have achieved–a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.
Even before joining forces with the Flynn Group of Companies earlier in 2015, Dalco Roofing & Sheet Metal had been satisfying commercial roofing customers for decades. The joining of the two companies is leading to greater opportunities to build an integrated roofing and building company across North America.
“The culture of Dalco reminds me of Flynn,” according to Flynn chief executive officer Doug Flynn. “We’re excited to continue expansion with a company that has such an attractive footprint in the Midwest,” adds David Dalbec, majority owner of Dalco: “Teaming up with Flynn offered the best opportunity to accelerate growth, provide broader opportunities to employees, and share best practices between the two companies. Flynn shares the same commitment to providing and growing a strong service business.”
The newly renamed company continues to provide the same quality services to customers, from retail outlet owners to property managers responsible for multiple large facilities. Flynn Dalco designs and installs new construction and reroofs, whether built-up, single-ply, or steep-slope. The company also provides waterproofing and coatings, roof asset management, architectural sheet metal, green roofing, winter maintenance, asbestos abatement, and noise reduction, as well as other services such as in-house design/drafting and certified estimators.
At Flynn Dalco, safety is taken seriously. An OSHA-certified contractor with an outstanding safety record, the company implements safety standards that go beyond industry requirements. It employs only educated roofers who have achieved OSHA-10 certification; many of its expert roofers are OSHA-30 certified. Flynn Dalco is a member of the Minnesota Safety Council; it is also a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association, Minnesota Association of Church Facility Managers, Building Owners and Managers Association, Institute of Real Estate Management and Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association.
Flynn Dalco plans to continue U.S. expansion by partnering with the right companies and driving organic growth. “Our primary focus over the next 12 to 18 months is to find, team up with, and integrate healthy companies that share our core values and four key attributes: passion for safety, focus on customer satisfaction, positive reputation, and strong field crews,” concludes Brynne Smith, president of Flynn’s U.S. operations. “Dalco was a perfect cultural and strategic fit. Combined with our branches in Kansas City and Springfield, we now have a growing and substantial presence in the Midwest.”
