Shortly after the North American launch, Telling Architectural entered into a partnership with Knight Wall Systems to jointly market Corium Cladding in conjunction with the latter company's continuous insulation and mineral-fiber rainscreen facade system.
"Knight's strong brand identity in the North American market, coupled with its innovative technology, are a good fit as we fully commercialize the Corium Cladding System," notes Collins.
