This week we’re announcing the addition of an Architectural Specifications Manager for the south-central United States. Jay Linville joins Draper after more than 30 years of experience working with the architectural community—including among major players in the commercial window shading industry.
Jay’s experience working with architects specifying solar control solutions for major commercial projects will be invaluable to our efforts in this part of the country. Jay is well respected in the architectural community and has a lot of close contacts. Not only will he be able to quickly leverage his experience on the shading side but will also be able to work with architects on gym equipment and audiovisual equipment as well.
Of course, Draper was founded in 1902 as a manufacturer of window shades for schools, although nowadays we also make motorized shading systems for the commercial and residential markets; AV projection screens and lifts; custom AV mounts and structures; and custom solar control solutions. Draper is also the largest architectural gym equipment manufacturer in North America.
Linville will work with Patrick Herron, LEED Green Associate, Regional Sales Director for the western USA, to promote the specification of window shades, gymnasium equipment, and audiovisual equipment.
“Draper has a great reputation in the architectural community for manufacturing quality solutions,” said Linville. “I’m excited about this opportunity and anticipate a highly successful partnership.”
