"The only way to get the pull-through in the market is to first get the product specified on the plans. My past experience in creating paradigm shift in the market reflects back to the foundation created by achieving product specification. My initial vision with the Company was to create ECOB World News platform to provide timely information regarding the development of Eco Red Shield products while simultaneously creating awareness about the ECOB University for detailed instruction, ultimately resulting in architects and engineers understanding the product and specifying it for use on the architectural plans," stated Steve Conboy, President & CEO.ECOB University Faculty Members are skilled educators, groundbreaking researchers, and industry experts.
