The modular industry's program dedicated to eliminating barriers to industry growth.
Support Our Efforts to Grow & Protect the Industry
MBI's focus is to identify, reduce, and remove barriers while capitalizing on opportunities in key markets.
In recent years, these funds have been used to help defeat the expansion of the Davis-Bacon Act into modular factories, develop new industry standards in the U.S. and Canada, create new modular-friendly building code language, and to defeat anti-industry legislation and regulations at numerous state, provincial, and federal levels.
We are asking all MBI members support this effort. Manufacturers can purchase one $20 MBI Seal for each new module constructed, while all other companies can make a donation in any amount and elect whether or not to receive an equivalent number of Seals.
