When Robert Mericle founded his company in the mid-1980s, he sought a building supplier who would be flexible and easy to work with, provide quality materials, and deliver on time, every time. He found this building supplier in the form of Butler Manufacturing™.
Butler Manufacturing™ provides a comprehensive combination of design-build construction solutions and innovative building technology to the nonresidential market. Every Butler® building solution is backed by unrivaled research and testing, ensuring that Butler® building systems perform to the highest standards. Through a network of more than 1,400 Butler Builder® dealers worldwide and corporate accounts services, Butler® addresses the demand for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient design in community, commercial, and industrial buildings.
Mericle is the proud recipient of numerous prominent awards as a Butler Builder®. Most recently, in March of 2018, President Robert Mericle and company officials Lew Sebia, Bryan McManus, and Bob Gavlick traveled to Butler’s annual sales conference at its headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, where Mericle was honored as the North American Volume Builder of the Year.
“We are honored and humbled to win this prestigious award,” said Mericle. “This is the top award handed out by Butler Manufacturing™ and is a credit to our tremendous team of close to 250 skilled professionals who work very hard every day to develop quality real estate and recruit tenants who create and retain jobs in our area.”
Since 1985, Mericle has developed 22 million square feet of industrial, office, flex, and medical space in 15 Northeastern Pennsylvania business parks, and Butler® has provided the building materials for almost all of these projects.
Mericle’s marketing department often utilizes the innovative BUTLERiCONNECT™ Co-Marketing Program for Butler Builders®, which reimburses Butler Builders for a percentage of certain eligible marketing expenses.
“BUTLERiCONNECT has given a tremendous boost to our marketing efforts and has made it easier to recruit tenants to our construction projects,” said Robert Mericle.
