MBCEA Receives Ketenbrink Foundation Grant

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - April 14, 2021 - PRLog -- www.mbcea.org – The Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA) is the proud recipient of a generous grant from the Ketenbrink Education Foundation (KEF). Funds will be used to assist in the development of training videos for metal building erection.

The KEF is the legacy of Bob and Bev Ketenbrink. Its stated goal is to assist in improving the quality of metal building construction and the training available in the metal building industry. Bob famously said: "The most important thing in the metal construction industry today is the training that is needed to safely and correctly install the material so the end user gets the best quality for his investment."

The MBCEA is excited to continue the Ketenbrink legacy and develop critical training materials for industry. Art Hance, MBCEA President, says, "Bob and Bev knew long before there was a labor shortage that well-trained craftsmen were vital for the success of the industry. Their legacy, which will be used to update our videos, will play a part in training craftsmen for years to come."


The MBCEA was formed in 1968 to serve the needs and support the interests of metal building contractors and erectors. It has 3 main goals:
  • Education: To provide programs and venues that enhance education opportunities for metal building contractors and erectors.
  • Image Enhancement: To develop programs to enhance the image of metal building contractors and erectors, and the metal building industry.
  • Grassroots Support: To develop and maintain programs specifically designed to support and respond to the needs of the grassroots membership of the MBCEA.

The association proudly boasts membership from virtually every aspect of the industry and all 50 States and Canada. For additional information please visit our website at www.mbcea.org or contact Sasha Demyan at 484-239-3337.
