Midwest Lumber, a Division of U.S. Lumber, Strengthens and Expands
Trex Distribution Network
WINCHESTER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 25, 2018--
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.”
