YouthBuild Philadelphia Tours CertainTeed Research and Development Center

YouthBuild Philly students took a tour of CertainTeed’s newest renovated research and development facility-the Malvern Innovation Center (MIC). The students started out the day with an introduction from Narendar Yeshwanth, Vice President of R&D for CertainTeed roofing. Narendar welcomed the students and presented an overview of the MIC, followed by a safety briefing before the tours.

More than 20 YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School students saw a duct board demonstration, networked with CertainTeed researchers, and had a first-hand look at the labs that serve CertainTeed’s insulation, roofing and ceilings businesses.

  2. Thank you St. Gobain,
    My students loved the tour and learned a lot about the duct board installation. And I could tell from the look on his face our HVAC contractor (Who will be working with the students) was really impressed.
    My students can not wait to complete their first duct board creation and installation. We also enjoyed the blanket and spay foam insulation. I will jump for joy the day when one of my students gets certified in installing your poducts and has the opertunity to interview with one of your providers, such as west Chester insulation!
    Thanks Falicia thanks RC and the whole St. Gobain origination
