Varco Pruden Buildings has created a new business unit dedicated exclusively to roofing.
Varco Pruden Roof Systems is a specialized team staffed to specifically give independent authorized Varco Pruden builders assistance with roofing product and pricing. The team will work exclusively on roofing, with focus on re-roof, retrofit and new conventional construction projects.
Mark Tender, who has more than 20 years in the metal roofing industry, has been named national sales manager for this new effort.
Tender’s responsibilities will be to develop growth in the company’s endeavor to assist builders who are interested in pursuing roofing opportunities. He will work directly with the company’s more than 1,000 authorized builders to develop new business for its roofing systems.
Tender brings industry experience in sales, technical and customer service in the industry. Before coming to Varco Pruden, he served as customer service manager for AEP-SPAN’s eastern region since 2005.
“Building owners looking for a way to stop roof leaks, reduce maintenance cost and improve the appearance of their facility will find the answer with VP Roof Systems and their local Varco Pruden Builder,” Tender explained. “Whether your current roof is a non-metal or a metal roof…flat or sloped, Varco Pruden Roof Systems can provide a solution that gives you long-term, weather-tight protection and fewer roofing headaches.”
