Founded by John Herrmann, Bain Associates, Inc. has been helping clients build better ever since we began representing roofing manufacturers in Oregon and Southwest Washington in 1999.
Today, we have expertise in a range of divisions including roofing, green roofs, waterproofing, daylighting, moisture-resistant gypsum for walls, leak detection, and more. Though Siplast remains our cornerstone, our product line will continue to evolve as we diversify within our areas of expertise.
Our business has grown steadily. In 2005, Jeff Elkins joined us as a partner, bringing 18 years of experience in the roofing business as a rep and supplier. Bill Thordarson came on board in 2014, giving us a consistent, experienced presence in Washington.
We have grown our coverage to include Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska.
Our approach is to jump right in and put our shoulders to the wheel. Our clients like that. We work with the best manufacturers in the industry; the leaders or developers of the products they offer. We learn their products, study competing products, and provide clients with accurate, truthful information. Most important, we know how our systems work within the context of the project in which they are to be used.
Honesty and integrity are hallmarks here. Our reputation is built upon them. Our ethical standards require that we have a sound technical understanding of all materials, specifications, and details. As we introduce new products, we work with architects and specifiers so they feel as confident about our products as we do. Our experience helps minimize risk in the most risky part of the construction business.
We hope to expand our influence as territories open up, manufacturers seek us out, and good people become available to work with us.
