Achievements in Systems-Built Housing Recognized
The Building Systems Councils (BSC) presented Roger Lyons, CEO of Penn Lyon Homes of Selinsgrove, PA, with its S.A. Walters Award for his significant contributions to the systems-built industry and NAHB.
The award was presented at the recent SHOWCASE 2003, the only convention and trade show dedicated to the systems-built housing.
Lyons has been an active BSC member for several decades. He served as BSC chairman in 1981. More recently, as the councils’ BUILD-PAC liaison, he helped raise more than $60,000 at SHOWCASE 2002, a record for BUILD-PAC donations from a single event.
Lyons got his start in the systems-built housing industry working in a Pennsylvania manufactured housing plant in 1962.
In 1981, he founded Penn Lyon Homes, a modular home manufacturing company specializing in high-end custom homes. By 1987, according to Inc. magazine, it was the 17th fastest-growing company in America.
