ACMA will meet with members of the Home Builders Association of the Mississippi Coast in Gulfport, to discuss the potential for wide-spread use of composites in rebuilding homes and businesses.

“”This is a great opportunity to acclimate home builders to the advantages of using composite materials, and how, from an engineering perspective, there are distinct advantages,”” said ACMA’s Director of Composites Market Growth John Busel. “”In my presentation to the group, I’ll focus on determining areas where application development could build on composites benefits and discuss marketing incentives to build housing that meet or exceed existing or emerging codes.””

The event was spawned by the success of an ACMA meeting with national homebuilder Beazer Homes representatives in Florida last month. The upcoming meeting is intended to discover the unmet needs of builders on the coast and to educate builders on how to build better homes using composites while also considering insurance industry and building code hurdles.

ACMA plans to form a committee of composite manufacturers in the next 60 days to explore market growth along the Gulf Coast.
