Finally, a Modular Home Association Steps Up to the Plate

  • Group: Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA)
  • Subject: Modular Home Builders Association Calls for Industry to Unite

The Modular Home Builders Association (formerly the Modular Building Systems Association) has announced the launch of its new industry initiative to finally unite the modular home building industry under one national association. For years, the modular home industry has been fragmented and disjointed, underserved and underrepresented by committees, councils and for-profit entities that have come and gone. The Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) is the only full-service national organization dedicated exclusively to International Residential Code (IRC) built modular homes.

Having grown from 2 to 30 member companies in the past year while restructuring, MHBA will continue to attract more modular home builders and manufacturers, as well as suppliers of services and materials. Home builders are on the front line, dealing with local code officials daily and selling our industry to the customers. MHBA is there to support their efforts. The association will have a dual focus of promoting the advantages of modular construction to the home buying public while representing the industry on regulatory and legislative advocacy efforts within various state agencies. Member companies will also receive referrals of interested home buyers from the MHBA website and be eligible for other member benefits.

Additionally, the association will host an industry conference in the late spring in the Philadelphia area. Presentations will come from a variety of perspectives and cover the latest trends, technology, issues and opportunities in the modular home industry.
