The Foundation of the Wall and Ceiling Industry

The Foundation of the Wall and Ceiling Industry

The Foundation's mission is to be an active, unbiased source of information and education to support the wall and ceiling industry.

In the late 1970s, there was a clear recognition among industry leaders for the need to unite and expand the educational and research activities available to contractors, manufacturers, distributors and the public in general. At the time, there were many issues facing the industry—from a national energy crisis to injuries in the workplace, to unsafe buildings occupied by the public. In response to these issues, the Foundation of the Wall and Ceiling Industry was formed in 1977 with the above mission statement as an IRS designated non-profit 501(c)3 corporation to pursue educational and research activities benefiting the industry and the public at-large.
