COLUMBUS, Ohio — Palmer-Donavin, a leader in building material distribution and door fabrication, announced it is adding Malarkey Roofing Products to their offerings.

“Palmer-Donavin is excited to bring Malarkey Roofing Products to the Midwest," said Josh Thompson, vice president of product management at Palmer-Donavin. " Until now, most of Malarkey’s focus has been in the western U.S. Palmer-Donavin is one of the first distributors to carry the line in the Midwest, and Malarkey will be available to building material customers in Palmer-Donavin’s footprint.”

According to Palmer-Donavin's website, the company is now stocking Highlander® NEX® AR and Vista® AR Architectural Shingles along with accessories.

Thompson said adding Malarkey is part of the company's focus to find manufacturers that are "putting more effort into producing sustainable products." Malarkey is diverting rubber tires and plastic bags from landfills along with integrating smog-reducing granules on their shingles.

“Malarkey Roofing Products is proud to be among the most preferred products offered by Palmer-Donavin,” said Tom Fisher, Midwest regional sales manager, Malarkey Roofing Products. “This distribution relationship allows us to bring more of our performance-driven and sustainably-designed roofing shingles to contractors and homeowners in the Midwest. Made with upcycled rubber and plastics to reduce landfill waste, and smog-reducing granules that help clean the air, Malarkey shingles perform better on the roof and are better for the environment.”

Matt Butzier, COO of Palmer-Donavin, said adding a partner like Malarkey demonstrates the company's commitment to sustainable products. 

"We look forward to developing a market for Malarkey given their quality offering and dedication to sustainability," he said.
