CINCINNATI — Aeroseal and the nonprofit, Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA), announced a partnership that will provide building contractors with easy access to tools and business training essential for business success. Under the partnership, Aeroseal contractors will receive a discount on EGIA membership, and EGIA member contractors will receive discounts on the purchase of Aeroseal duct sealing systems. In addition, both Aeroseal and EGIA will actively participate in each other organization’s key events including conferences, webinars, and workshops.
