MRS Announces Distribution Partnership with Advanced Building Products and Tamlyn

Irvington, NJ — Manufacturers Reserve Supply (MRS) is pleased to announce its distribution partnership with two leading companies in the building materials industry: Advanced Building Products and Tamlyn. Through these partnerships, MRS will be able to offer its customers a superior line of weatherization products that meet the latest building codes and standards.

The partnership with Tamlyn will bring a superior new drainable housewrap to the market. TamlynWrap Drainable WRB features the best drainability in the market, thanks to its patented gap design that creates a true drainage space between the sheathing and cladding material. According to Miguel Gonzales, Tamlyn’s CEO and President, the drainable housewrap “drains 2x faster than other drainable wraps” and has “drying capability of a 3/8 rainscreen.” This makes it an ideal choice for builders and contractors who are looking for effective weatherization solutions.

In addition to the partnership with Tamlyn, MRS has also teamed up with Advanced Building Products, a company known for its high-quality building materials. One of the key products in the Advanced Building Products lineup is CedAir-Mat, a premium underlayment for cedar roofs that is designed to protect against moisture and decay. CedAir-Mat is easy to install and provides superior protection against weathering, making it a great choice for any roofing project. “After touring the MRS facility and meeting with their leadership team, I saw a lot of synergies between our two organizations on many levels. When a partner believes in the science of our products and sees the importance of educating the industry, that’s a partner we want to be associated with.” Keith Lolley, President.

Another product offered by Advanced Building Products is Mortairvent Rainscreen, a ventilation system that is designed to create a drainage and ventilation cavity between the weather resistant barrier (WRB) and the exterior wall. Mortairvent is easy to install and can help prevent moisture buildup and other problems that can lead to mold and other issues.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Advanced Building Product and Tamlyn to our weatherization portfolio. This strategic expansion allows Manufacturers Reserve Supply to offer a comprehensive range of solutions for builders’ projects, all conveniently available under one roof. With the inclusion of these respected brands, we are further empowering our customers by providing them with a choice of high-quality products that address their specific weatherization needs. This enhanced portfolio solidifies MRS’s commitment to delivering exceptional value, efficiency, and convenience to our valued clients.”
