CraftMaster Announces Distribution Agreement with MRS

Chicago, IL, May 1, 2007 – CMI announced today that MRS will be distributing its MiraTEC® exterior composite trim. MiraTEC combines the eye-catching beauty of cedar with the long-term performance of an engineered product. MiraTEC is treated with the wood preservative zinc borate and is made with phenolic resins that provide outstanding resistance to moisture, rot, and termites.

“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with MRS,” said Bob Merrill, CMI President and CEO. “MRS is committed to service excellence just as CMI is committed to excellence in manufacturing, design, and marketing. MRS has been distributing specialty building products for over 76 years and we believe that they will be very successful with the MiraTEC product line.”

MiraTEC Trim provides the perfect accent to any exterior cladding – fiber cement, vinyl, brick, OSB, hardboard, wood, or stucco. Factory primed on four sides with a mildew resistant primer for easy painting, it is available in 5/4 and 4/4 thicknesses: 16 foot lengths; and widths from 2″ to 16″. For added piece of mind, MiraTEC is backed by a 30-year warranty – the most comprehensive in the trim category.

“We are highly selective about products and suppliers, “ said MRS President and CEO Steve Boyd. “We want to be sure that we have products that will not only be successful, but will also be backed by a company capable of supporting the product’s success over the long haul. The CMI team is made up of experienced, skilled professionals and MRS looks forward to a long-term successful relationship.”
