OMG Roofing Products is a leading supplier of roofing fasteners, adhesives, roof drains, rooftop pipe supports, solar mounts and engineered edge metal systems, as well as proprietary installation technology for the low-slope or “flat” roofing market. We sell to commercial roof system manufacturers such as Carlisle, Firestone, GAF, Johns Manville and Sika-Sarnafil among others, as well as through a nationwide network of roofing distributors. We estimate that more than 65% of all commercial, industrial and institutional buildings in the United States have one or more of our products on their roof! We support and drive our leading share position through a large direct field sales force in North America, China and in Western Europe.
FastenMaster is committed to offering professional contractors fastening solutions that improve jobsite safety and increase productivity. We believe that by developing products that make various types of construction faster, stronger, easier, and safer, everyone wins. FastenMaster products provide installation benefits to remodelers, professional deck builders, residential framers, home builders, and floor installers. Our products are widely used in residential decking, residential wood framing, and flooring installations among others. Our market-leading brands include the LOKLine of structural wood fasteners, Cortex hidden fastening systems for deck & trim, Tiger Claw hidden deck clip systems, and the PAMFast AutoFeed screw systems. These products can be found throughout North America at lumberyards and major home centers such as The Home Depot and Lowe’s, all supported by a large direct field sales team.
We streamline work and reduce waste using Continuous Improvement (CI) tools including GEMBA, Kanban, Kaizen, and Visual Management. This is a great way for us to become more efficient and effective, which adds value to the customer’s bottom line. Having used these tools for almost 10 years, CI has become second nature at OMG and our teams find CI opportunities in the most unexpected places, creating an environment that nurtures innovation and fosters a sense of ownership and pride for us all.
Our goal is to develop each employee in some way every year. We know that most employees, from entry-level to executive, are more concerned with opportunities for learning and development than any other aspect of their job. This makes perfect sense to us, since continuous learning is a key strategy for building a sustainable career. Our learning and development takes place not only in formal training programs, but also on the job—through new challenges and developmental assignments, developmental feedback, conversations and mentoring.
