Cary, NC (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
Do you have a new innovation for the building products industry? Ply Gem, a leading manufacturer of exterior building products, announces an initiative to give the best and brightest innovators, inventors, engineers and designers a chance to turn their innovations into reality with Ply Gem Build Forward. Applications are now open on http://www.build-forward.com. Ply Gem is specifically seeking ideas for new materials, installation technologies and/or manufacturing processes to improve existing products or develop new ones.
To kick off the program, eligible applicants who submit their idea by December 15, 2013 may be invited to pitch their innovation on stage in front of a panel of judges in Ply Gems booth at the 2014 International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas. Beyond IBS, the Ply Gem Build Forward program will offer ongoing opportunities for idea development. Business relationships resulting from a successful application may include a license, a supply agreement, a joint development agreement or other collaborative ventures.
One of the pillars of Ply Gems success is innovation, consistently developing new products, materials and processes that move the industry forward, said Lee Clark-Sellers, innovation officer, Ply Gem. Through the Build Forward program, we want to collaborate with others to push the envelope and ultimately help us improve home building and remodeling.
