The "TSIB" is the technical arm of the Western Walls & Ceilings Contractors Association (WWCCA) serving the communities of Southern California, Southern Nevada and Arizona. WWCCA is the oldest (est. in 1901) wall & ceiling association in the West. The success of the association can be attributed to our ability to develop loyal and close relationships with contractors, building code officials, architects, engineers and other industry groups that are unparalleled in the wall and ceiling industry. The technical information gathered by TSIB has been generated through correspondence, educational programs, technical papers and dissemination of industry technical codes and standards.
