“The explosive growth in membership of the SFIA in such a short period of time highlights the desire of all industry stakeholders to focus on growth opportunities that exist in our industry” says Bill Courtney.

The SFIA is the first and only all-inclusive association focused on promotion, advocacy, education and innovation for the steel framing industry. The primary goal is to unify the industry to expand the market for cold-formed steel framing. Membership categories include steel mills, coil coaters, processors, roll-formers, fabricators, engineers, material distributors; all the way through and including the end-user, the framing contractors.
