Continental Building Products Announces Susan G. Komen® Partnership

HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has worked toward one vision: to create a
world without breast cancer. Continental Building Products announced
today that it stands by this vision and will support Susan G. Komen and
its mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our
communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure
breast cancer.

One of Continental’s core beliefs is the importance of giving back to
the communities in which its employees live and work. Whether donating
wallboard to local charities’ building efforts or providing low-cost
solar energy to residents near its Buchanan, NY plant, Continental
strives to always live its BISON values: Bold, Inclusive, Steadfast,
Open-minded and Nimble.

In keeping with this mission, Continental is working towards partnering
with Komen in the summer of 2019 through sales of its Weather Defense®
exterior sheathing. The exterior sheathing will feature a new Bison BoardTM
Weather Defense® logo in pink, along with Susan G. Komen’s pink Running
Ribbon on a white background.

“Breast cancer will touch one in eight women during their lifetime and
is something that impacted my family,” says Jay Bachmann, Continental’s
President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am proud that Continental will
play a part in supporting the battle against this disease in partnership
with Susan G. Komen.”
