VALLEY FORGE, Pa. - HVAC distributor and Wichita, Kan.-based Wichita Sheet Metal Industries was selected as a member of CertainTeed Corp.'s ProTeam, a group of preferred HVAC and mechanical insulation suppliers.

A presentation was held at the company's Wichita office to celebrate the designation.

"We have always worked hard for CertainTeed and we're very pleased that CertainTeed is recognizing us for our efforts," said Frank Rash, WSM Industries sales manager. "We especially appreciate the work of our territory manager, Scott Keeler, to help us gain that status."

As a ProTeam member, the company is entitled to value-added services and tools, including annual meetings to develop business plans, access to cooperative advertising, marketing, promotional and customer service support.

"The biggest advantage we see to being a ProTeam member is the increased customer support that we will receive from CertainTeed," said Rash. "The customer support has always been good, but we expect it to step up another level."
