The company’s ownership and product line will not change.

DERBIGUM Americas, Inc., a leading producer of high-quality APP modified bitumen roofing systems and accessories for the low-slope commercial roofing market, announced it will change its name to Performance Roof Systems, Inc., A SOPREMA Group Company.

The decision to change the corporate name reflects the company’s legacy and strengthens the strategy to focus on Performance Roof Systems’ industry-leading roofing solutions. It will also formally align the relationship as “A SOPREMA Group Company.”

SOPREMA, Inc., a leading manufacturer of commercial roofing, building envelope waterproofing, wall protection and civil engineering waterproofing solutions, acquired DERBIGUM Americas in August 2018.

“Performance Roof Systems will continue to provide the U.S. marketplace with highly protective, resilient and sustainable APP modified bitumen roofing systems and accessories, just as it has for 40 years,” said Tim Kersey, CEO – U.S. Operations at SOPREMA. “With this new/legacy company name, our valued customers can continue to expect exceptional products and services from our team of dedicated collaborators.”
