Durabuilt Modular Homes, the Shamokin Dam, PA modular factory that rose out of the ashes of the bankrupt MSI factory had two PR successes this week.

When a fire destroyed a home near the plant, Durabuilt jumped in and offered to build a home for the family.  Then WNEP, a TV station in Scranton/Wilkesbarre, PA did a segment about it and interviewed the President and visited the factory.

If you're going to do a good deed, make sure you toot your horn a little.  It will pay off for Durabuilt in more sales and more employment for our industry.  Now that's the way it's done.

The Maurers, who lost the home they lived in for nearly 40 years because of a fire are building a new home on the same lot near Selinsgrove, thanks to the modular home company.

"Two nights later they were up here with blueprints. They said look at what you want. My wife and daughter picked the house and they started the house two days later," said Henry Maurer.

GOOD JOB DURABUILT!!! It would be great to see other companies do the same thing - like contributing a home to recent tornado victims. Or even better why haven't we seen the industry pull together and pool resources to help those who have been left homeless by the storms?

And until now I coudn't tell you who Durabuilt was, this is a Home Run that they should be extremely proud of. Go back and look at what "MSI" scored on the website ratings.......................They need to have a link or something tooting their own horn about this.
