In early 2018, Duro-Last, the world’s largest manufacturer of custom-fabricated, thermoplastic single-ply roofing, held its annual National Sales Seminar in San Antonio, TX. In attendance were more than 1,300 guests representing over 200 companies that work with Duro-Last, and the event also kicked off the roofing company’s year-long 40th Anniversary celebration.
At this event, Duro-Last recognized multiple contractors for outstanding dedication and workmanship over the past year.
The top honor of 2017 Contractor of the Year was awarded to two longtime Duro-Last contractors during the annual Awards Banquet. Royalty Roofing from Seymour, IN, and Parson’s Commercial Roofing from Waco, TX, each earned the Contractor of the Year distinction for their exceptional work on complex projects, attention to detail, customer service, and record-setting sales. Both Royalty Roofing and Parsons Commercial Roofing are recognized as Duro-Last Platinum contractors, have been installing the company’s roofing systems for more than 20 years, and reached over $9 million in sales throughout 2017.
