BlueTarp Financial Releases Its 2018 1st Quarter  Building Supply Index

Index continues to hit all-time high, but delinquencies remain elevated

PORTLAND, ME – May 21, 2018 – BlueTarp Financial – the leading credit management company for B2B suppliers – released its Q1 2018 Building Supply Index. The Q1 2018 12-month trailing average, which accounts for seasonality, hit an all-time high at 130.66, up from 128.84 in Q4 2017.  The unadjusted view also remained high at 125.67 – a 5.6% increase from Q1 2017.

To interpret the index, values below 100 reflect recessionary or recovering performance.  Values above 100 reflect healthy economic activity.

Consumer confidence continues to be the main driver for the elevated index level, with that measure seeing an 8% increase from this time last year.

As a supplement to the Building Supply Index, BlueTarp conducts a quarterly survey of its contractors to gauge sentiment on the current and future state of the economy. Sixty percent of respondents expect the next 12-months to be “somewhat” or “significantly” improved. They are encouraged by an increase in jobs and customer spend, driven by consumer confidence, as well as proposed tax breaks for businesses.

“It’s clear from the index and survey, business is good,” said Scott Simpson, president and CEO of BlueTarp. “I’m a broken record on this, but delinquencies remain hovering at a level where a disruption will trigger a new wave of bad debt – beware.”

The report represents trends from 120,000 pro customers and more than 2,000 building material suppliers across the United States. It also incorporates macro-economic drivers including: building permits, construction spend and consumer confidence as reported monthly by the Census Bureau and The Conference Board.

Atlantis Rail Shines with Nova Nautilus Cable Railing System

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Website: www.atlantisrail.com

Uncommonly Sophisticated & Uniquely Refined, NOVA Nautilus Puts a Shine on Any Deck

Plymouth, MA, March 29, 2018– Atlantis Rail’s Nautilus Railing System is nothing new.  It has been a customer favorite for years. They have now teamed the Nautilus System up with their new NOVA II aluminum post kits to create the NOVA Nautilus System and it’s stunning.  It is even more affordable and easy to install.

The NOVA Nautilus System utilizes predrilled aluminum posts with a 2” stainless steel top and optional bottom rail.  It features multiple color options of black, white or bonze to compliment any application. The rails are structural strength stainless steel so it can be configured with a top rail only or a bottom rail can be added.  Cable spacing at 2-3/4” allows the posts to be spaced up to 6’ apart when using a cable stabilizer in the middle which further reduces the cost and expedites installation.

A proprietary sidemount fitting with an insulating gasket is used to mount the rails to the post, eliminating concern about potential issues in combining dissimilar metals.  HandiSwage™ components hide the cable connections inside the post and the easy to use swage tool and cover nut sets provide an easy install and a finish look.

Atlantis Rail Systems distributes cable railing and glass railing systems through a network of value added distributors and dealers located throughout the United States and Internationally.  Please contact an Atlantis Sales Representative to find a dealer near you or visit the Dealer Locator on the Atlantis Rail website.
