Boston Cedar Strengthens and Expands Trex Distribution Network
WINCHESTER, Va., Sept. 27, 2013 – Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, is expanding its industry-leading distribution network with the addition of Massachusetts-based Boston Cedar, effective November 1, 2013. The joining of these two industry leaders represents significant growth potential for each and enables Trex to broaden its reach and footprint in the Northeast.
“Boston Cedar has a solid reputation for integrity and responsiveness and boasts some of the best distributor sales representatives and management in the industry,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “This relationship will allow us each to expand our market share by providing the highest quality products and service to our valued channel partners.”
Based in Mansfield, Mass., Boston Cedar is an independent wholesale building materials distributor specializing in decking, railing, siding and trim. Serving the Northeast region for nearly 30 years, the company has differentiated itself through its dedicated focus on independent retail lumber and building materials dealers and its commitment to delivering quality products, innovative marketing solutions and educational programs for professional builders and remodelers.
“Our goal is to help our customers succeed by providing them with the highest levels of quality and service in everything we offer,” said Rob Ankner, chairman of Boston Cedar. “We chose Trex because it allowed Boston Cedar to upgrade our decking technology and aesthetics to what today’s consumers prefer. Additionally, 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.”
