Trex Company (NYSE:TREX), the world’s number one decking and railing brand, and leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products, is expanding its industry-leading distribution network with the addition of Minnesota-based Midwest Lumber, effective December 1, 2018. The joining of these two industry leaders represents significant growth potential for each and enables Trex to broaden its reach and footprint in the region.
“Midwest Lumber has a well-earned reputation for providing the highest level of service to its customers and suppliers, and boasts some of the best distributor sales representatives and management in the industry,” said Jim Cline, President and CEO of Trex Company. “As demand for high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products continues to grow, this relationship will allow each of us to expand our presence and market share throughout the region while providing the highest quality products and services to our valued channel partners.”
Based in Stillwater, Minn., Midwest Lumber was founded in 1985 as a wholesale distributor of building materials. Now a division of U.S. Lumber, it has evolved over the past 30 years into a full-service wholesale distribution company completely focused on specialty products. Midwest Lumber will bolster Trex’s industry-leading distribution network and will service Trex customers in Minnesota and portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Trex Company and its products, programs and people,” said Carl McKenzie, Chief Commercial Officer of U.S. Lumber. “Trex’s position as the industry leader, combined with the company’s commitment to product innovation and advancing the outdoor living category, make it an ideal brand for us.”
Trex products are offered through an extensive network of building products distributors and dealers, and are sold at more than 6,700 retail locations. For more information about Trex, visit www.trex.com.
