CONSTRUCTION materials manufacturer, TN International, has announced it has joined the industry charity CRASH as a corporate patron to support its work in helping homelessness charities and hospices across the UK.

TN International will support CRASH in the delivery of projects to construct and refurbish the buildings or spaces that care for the sick, vulnerable and homeless in local communities through a designated resource to supply expertise and products to construction projects.

TN International creates over 3,000 products and operates the Superglass insulation manufacturing site in Stirling and recently acquired Chesterfield-based Chesterfelt.

Theresa McLean, area director of TN International for UK & Ireland, said, “We are delighted to work in partnership with CRASH, a charity that delivers crucial projects to care for people when they are at their most vulnerable. Everything we do at TN International is designed to create integrated solutions that create positive built environments, and this partnership will allow us to put our products and expertise to use for the greater good.

“CRASH represents a powerful movement to unite our industry and we can’t wait to work with the fantastic team to deliver vital social impact projects across the UK.”

CRASH unites the construction industry by channelling the expertise, products and donations of corporate patrons and supporters to help deliver charitable projects. All corporate patrons make an annual donation of at least £9,000 and provide support to specific projects where their expertise is required.

Francesca Roberts, chief executive at CRASH, said, “I am delighted to welcome TN international as Corporate Patrons of CRASH. Our patrons are the lifeblood of the charity and TN international brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and products to our charity projects. I look forward to a successful partnership helping homelessness charities and hospices with their construction projects.”
