A Message From Mike Murphy, VP Sales
Dear Dryvit Distributor,
It's been a long and difficult winter, not only did we have to persevere the snow and cold weather this year, but an all but frozen economy as well. There is not a single region of the country that has not been negatively affected during this difficult time. As always Dryvit continues to be extremely impressed with your incredible resiliency and market leadership.  It is during difficult times that your dedication, experience, and leadership is more important than ever; we are extremely grateful for your commitment to Dryvit and the EIFS Industry.
