The partnership comes after NEx welcomed ExxonMobil Upstream Integrated Solutions Company and ExxonMobil Chemical Company, a division of ExxonMobil Corporation (herein after ExxonMobil), as a Gold Supporting Member.
Over its 135-year history, ExxonMobil has become one of the world's premier energy and chemical companies. ExxonMobil has a commitment parallel to NEx's initiatives as they work to advance and adopt innovative technologies to ensure nonmetallic building materials are as sustainable as they are of high quality.
Through a generous donation as a Gold Supporting Member, ExxonMobil will have a hands-on role in carrying out the core functions of NEx, including: Standards and Specifications; Technical Committee Acceleration; Professional Development; Plant Audit/Certification; Research and Development; Advocacy and Technical Support, and more. Funding from Sustaining and Supporting Members for all NEx initiatives is critical to helping the Center achieve its mission.
"NEx is ecstatic to welcome ExxonMobil as a Gold Supporting Member as they join us on our mission to create a future where everyone has the knowledge needed to use nonmetallic building materials effectively to meet the demands of a changing world," said Jerzy Z. Zemajtis, Executive Director, NEx.
NEx looks to draw additional partners from leading government agencies, technical societies, standard bodies, and manufacturers. To learn more about how NEx is advancing nonmetallics and to get involved, visit nonmetallic.org.
