MRS Announces Partnership With Ply Gem

Supplier Ply Gem

Irvington, NJ — Manufacturers Reserve Supply – MRS and Ply Gem have partnered to enhance the distribution of Ply Gem PVC trim in the mid-Atlantic market place. Ply Gem’s products provide builders and architects with products they can have confidence in.

Steve Boyd, President of MRS, said “We are very excited to announce this partnership with Ply Gem on our PVC trim. This has been the most extensive research that I have done on any product line in 35 years. We looked at 11 different manufacturers from around the world and found that the Ply Gem product had all the best qualities: density, tight tolerances, consistent quality, on time shipping, marketing, promotion and dedication to growing the product line. Additionally, these are the same machines with the same people in the same location as we have been buying from for the last 8 years. Ply Gem purchased the Simonton Window (Fortune Brands) operation and the Simex plant in St Mary’s, West Virginia. This is the same plant that made the product for Fypon (another Fortune Brands company). This will make a smooth transition as nothing will change except the name on the unit wrapper”

Shane Short, General Manager of Ply Gem Trim & Mouldings: “It’s my pleasure to announce that Ply Gem trim products will now be available through Manufacturers Reserve Supply. MRS is an outstanding supplier of building products in the markets they serve, and this partnership will strengthen our platform for growth in the years to come.”

“Our company’s vision is to be recognized as the leader in building products distribution in our markets, and adding Typar to our lineup reinforces that vision”, said Tina Breen, Sales Manager. “We want to bring products to market that are not only #1 brands in their category, but that complement the other products we currently offer. We are excited to bring Typar’s weather resistant barrier products to market.”

Gary Ellis, Channel Manager for PGI said “We needed a distributor who would be capable of the grass roots efforts we needed to grow market share in NJ and surrounding areas. MRS’s high caliber sales team is dedicated to working side by side with us to grow business through training, merchandising and sales efforts, and their operational excellence will ensure dealers can purchase the material they need with ease.”

Think of TYPAR HouseWrap as an extra layer of protection to secure the building envelope. With TYPAR HouseWrap on the outside, homes feel more comfortable on the inside. TYPAR HouseWrap eliminates drafts in the wall, which helps reduce energy costs. And the TYPAR material itself will not support the growth of mold or disintegrate over time, for added confidence and reduced worries. TYPAR HouseWrap offers superior protection that you can count on.
