New Haven, Connecticut — mindful MATERIALS (mM) recently announced the official launch of three building industry groups, known as The Forums, and ASSA ABLOY is excited to participate. The Forums represent owners and over 80 individuals from more than 40 leading companies across the manufacturing, architecture, design, engineering, and construction industries.

The three groups that were formed this year are the Owners Forum, the AEC Forum, and the Manufacturers Forum.

“The Forums are uniquely exciting as an industry initiative because they are designed for cross-collaboration,” says Amy Musanti, Director of Sustainable Building Solutions at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, a catalyst member of the Manufacturers Forum. “Each Forum will produce individual accomplishments and resources for their sector, but together we’ll be able to solve larger challenges as part of the materials decision flow. It’s about breaking out of our silos to support collective action as an ecosystem.”

Other Manufacturers Forum members include Armstrong World IndustriesCertainTeedConstruction SpecialtiesGAFHumanscaleKingspanLegrandMAPEIMechonCompassPatcraftSaint-GobainShaw Contract, and Superior Essex. These groups offer participants a neutral, precompetitive space to navigate mutual challenges and help accelerate meaningful action by others in the industry.

“These Forums are the building industry’s collective opportunity to leverage holistic materials leadership and learnings for the benefit of all,” says Steve Kooy, mM Board Chair. “It’s time to stop redoing work and start aligning to have more impact. Together.”
