Elite Roofing Supply Becomes Platinum Sponsor of National Women in Roofing

Elite Roofing Supply, a locally owned, independent distributor of roofing materials and supplies, recently became a platinum sponsor of National Women in Roofing (NWIR), a non-for-profit organization whose mission is to recruit, retain, empower and educate women in the roofing industry. The sponsorship demonstrates the ongoing commitment Elite makes to investing in the roofing industry, on local, regional and national platforms.

The sponsorship money goes directly to providing resources for women to enter, learn and grow within the roofing industry in many capacities including product installation, sales, specifications, administration, marketing, research and development and technical training. NWIR boasts over 1,100 active members nation-wide and are focused on bringing more women into an industry facing a shortage of skilled employees, as well as providing growth opportunities to those already in working in roofing in some capacity.

“We are so thrilled that Elite Roofing Supply has committed as a platinum sponsor,” commented Executive Director, Ellen Thorp. “Their investment will pay dividends to our members and prospective members as we continue to grow.”

The leadership team at Elite believes so strongly in NWIR that the company pays the membership fee for its employees and encourages them to get involved in their local councils. “Elite believes strongly that NWIR provides a forum for women to find mentors, further their roofing education and network with others in the industry,” stated Chief Operating Officer Sarah Weiss. “As a member since the inception of the organization, I believe this forum is making a difference in the level of participation and engagement of women throughout the industry and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

Elite Roofing Supply Adds Two Branches in Colorado

Elite Roofing Supply, a locally owned, independent distributor of roofing materials and supplies, recently increased its footprint in Colorado from one branch in Denver with the addition of two branches — one located in Loveland and the other in Colorado Springs. Founded in 2013, Elite’s mission is to provide roofers with an independent distributor that is knowledgeable in both commercial and residential roofing and committed to being good stewards in the industry and serving the professional roofing contractor community.

The managing partner of the Colorado Springs branch, Bert West, has been in the roofing industry for over 38 years, 25 of which was spent running a roofing company before transitioning to the wholesale side. According to the company, West is focused on providing top-notch customer service and when he is not advocating for his customers, you will find him on a forklift or driving the delivery truck — whatever it takes to make each day a success. His dedication to his customers and team has led to deep roots within his community and has guided his success in his career.

The Loveland branch is strategically located to service Northern Colorado and led by Managing Partner Randall Adam. A graduate of the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a degree in Industrial Distribution, Adam joined the roofing industry in 2002. Since then, he has worked in many roles ranging from loading roofs and dispatching trucks to selling materials and managing his branch. According to the company, over the years Adam has built many longstanding relationships in the roofing community, believing life is about the people we meet along the way. His passion for building relationships and strong teams are what has driven Adam’s successes over his career and fare a natural fit with Elite’s core values.

Elites’ CEO and Chairman of the Board, Brian Torry, said, “We are thrilled with the addition of these two branches to the Elite family and are confident that our customers will reap the rewards of this dedicated group of people. Bert and Randall exemplify the Elite culture – putting the customer’s needs first by providing long-term relationships, knowledge of the industry and a comprehensive line of quality roofing materials.”

Elite Roofing Supply is a locally owned, independent distributor of roofing materials and supplies currently serving Arizona, California, Colorado, and Louisiana with a fleet of over 55 trucks to ensure timely deliveries for its customers. Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Glendale, Arizona, Elite’s mission is to provide roofers with a knowledgeable independent distributor that is focused on making the experience of buying their roofing supplies as easy as possible.

Elite Roofing Supply Continues its Tradition of Giving Back

Elite Roofing Supply (Elite), a locally owned, independent distributor of roofing materials and supplies, recently held its annual “Tools for School” program for its 250+ employees and their families. With the school year in full swing, the leadership at Elite understands the challenges and expenses related to getting children prepared for their education. To help ease the financial burden on its employees, Elite holds an annual event to provide the necessary tools for their children.

Started in 2016, the “Tools for School” program involves each of its 12 branch managers buying needed resources such as backpacks, lunch boxes and school supplies for every employee’s children ages three to 23 years of age who are enrolled in school. Employees provide the supply list given by the school, as well as what the children are interested in – whether it is a certain sports team or TV or movie character – so that they are provided materials that are uniquely suited to the student.

“We love this program because we value our employees and want to support their families in as many ways as possible,” commented Chief Operating Officer, Sarah Weiss. “The best part, however, is to see the smiles on the faces of these young students. I look forward to this time of year because of those happy faces.”
