Western Colloid, a manufacturer of fluid-applied roofing, reflective coating systems and premium asphalt sealcoats, announced that its president, Greg Hlavaty, was recognized by the Roof Coatings Manufacturer Association (RCMA) for his service to the RCMA and the roof coatings industry. This recognition was for his dedicated leadership and exceptional contributions to the roof coatings industry.

Hlavaty has been an active member of the RCMA, serving as a board member and officer in the position of vice president and president, and lending his industry expertise to various committees and task forces throughout his many years of service to the organization.
