Tropical Roofing Products Celebrates 60 Year Anniversary
More Than Half A Century Of Roofing Product Innovation Designed Specifically for Roofing Professionals
Richard Zegelbone, President of Tropical Roofing Products remarks; "Our customers have associated our name with quality, reliability and value for 60 years now. This has always been our hallmark, we are very proud to have built this company with a focus on the customer."
A History of Experience and Innovation
Tropical Asphalt [their original name] was a small, rural company that functioned part manufacturer and part distributor. As the landscape in Florida began to shift from rural to urban, the company was put up for sale.
Once the Zegelbone’s took over the company, they started producing better quality products and professional grade materials. By creating better materials for their customers, the Zegelbone’s began selling product all over the state of Florida. Active industry involvement, creating better engineered materials, and adding organizational structure throughout the company allowed Tropical began to shed their old reputation.
The move to new-generation products occurred almost 20 years ago. It was this type of innovative thinking that gave Tropical the mindset for early adoption of energy efficiency and sustainable products produced today. The new world has brought variety and change, and Tropical Roofing Products embraces new technology and new times with the same passion and values that brought them here 60 years later.
The 60 Year Celebration
Special promotions and events are planned throughout the 2012 calendar to mark this historic milestone for the company, and to pay tribute to the company's long legacy and contribution to the roofing industry.
In closing Richard notes, "Our ability as a U.S. company to grow and innovate for 60 years is a remarkable achievement in an industry that has seen tremendous change over the last several decades. Our customers continue to reinforce the value of our quality, experience and innovation in their own success stories."
