Partnerships Like the One We Have With Moulding & Millwork Producers Association Make Us Better, Strong, & Smarter

Through the years, the WVCO Wood Products Division has forged a number of partnerships with leading organizations in our industry so we can better serve the marketplace with high performance patching products, coatings, application equipment, service and supplies.

As a leading producer of wood products relating to cabinets, moulding, doors, trims, overlays and more, we greatly value strategic partnerships like the one we have with the Moulding & Millwork Producers Association (MMPA).
Moulding & Millwork Producers Association

MMPA, a not-for-profit association, is what some members call “the voice of the moulding industry in North America.” The international trade organization serves manufacturers of wood, MDF and poly moulding and millwork by setting industry standards and promoting quality products domestically and abroad. It also hosts regular educational and networking sessions for it’s members with the goal of improving the industry as a whole.

“From our point-of-view, there were three key items within MMPA we wanted to be connected with,” says Paul Turcotte, Director of Operations at Roland Boulanger & Co. Ltd. “First, the upholding of the WM® standards to which each quality manufacturer should respect….Second, MMPA meetings gather suppliers of machinery and raw material from different parts of the world in a forum atypical to a trade show atmosphere…Third, we strongly believe networking is a critical component of the whole membership package. Making connections to our competitors while interacting with them during educational sessions and social events has proven invaluable over the years.”

“I am amazed at how daily competitors come together and discuss the business obstacles and opportunities within a relatively small industry. The knowledge, experience, and comradeship that is built within the members within the association is an investment for myself and for my company, ” says Al Delbridge, President, East Coast Moulding Co.
