New Framebuilders’ Collective

Posted on 27. Feb, 2009 by NAHBS in 2009 News

An influential new organization has emerged from the ranks of handmade frame builders.

According to a press release issued 26 February, eight frame builders from three countries have spent the last 24 months working together to create an international organization which they hope can strengthen the trade, pay homage to its past, and work towards ensuring that its future is bright and profitable.

The Framebuilders’ Collective includes Curt Goodrich, Sacha White, Nick Crumpton, Dave Kirk, Carl Strong, Dario Pegoretti, Darrell McCulloch and Richard Sachs.

A website provides information about the group’s mission statement and an FAQ list.

The press release adds: “All founding members are enthusiastic about the Collective’s potential and are now looking forward to finally being a public entity after two years of planning. Efforts are underway to expand the names involved so that the Framebuilders’ Collective will be a true representation of the talent and the commitment that is part and parcel of the professional frame-building trade.”

The new collective will build on work started by NAHBS to raise standards in the industry.
