The Blair / Bedford Builders Association,
“The Voice of the Building and Housing Industry in Blair and Bedford Counties”
is a stable and credible organization… celebrating our
52nd anniversary in 2013… we have been meeting the needs of the building and housing industry (and those companies that serve the industry) throughout these years….and we continue to do so, with ever-changing programs and services to meet changing needs. But one thing does not change with time – our commitment to serve our members and community with the utmost of care and concern.
It is our mission to provide services and value to every company,
small or large, that is involved in building, construction or housing in some way, shape or form, in Blair and Bedford Counties. While we invite
ALL COMPANIES involved in building, construction and housing (and those companies that provide services, materials and supplies to our industry) to apply for membership, we do have minimum standards for membership that all applicants must meet. Occasionally, a few companies can not meet those standards and we decline their applications until their business operations are able to meet the minimum standards for membership.
Membership means something!
When consumers choose to do business with a member of the Blair / Bedford Builders Association, we want them to know that the member company they have selected meets minimum standards designed to protect the housing consumer.
