MRS will Distribute Selex Trim Boards in Alliance with CMPC

Supplier CMPC

Effective immediately, MRS will be distributing Selex Trim Boards manufactured by CMPC, one of the largest Pine board exporters in Chile and Argentina.

“MRS is known for distributing quality trim products. We think that offering a good better best selection is critical to turning prospects into sales and that is exactly what adding Selex to our line of products will do” said Steve Boyd, President of MRS. When asked why CPMC chose MRS to be a distributor, Jeff Herscovitz, Sales Manager, responded “We look for alliances that share the same consultative approach to selling that we do. Education and training for both the lumber yard and the contractor on features and benefits, along with best building practices is the approach we want to take to the market. MRS has been well known for their high level of strategic selling for many years.”

Selex trim boards from CMPC are finger jointed radiata pine, primed with 2 coats of high quality acrylic primer, and buffed between each coat. The factory applied primer gives a thickness to the coating that contractors desire, and the vacuum priming system is the process that contractors trust.
