Trex Tops 2018 Builder Brand Study

Leading Manufacturer Breaks Records for Brand Used Most and Brand Used Most in Past Two Years

WINCHESTER, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apr. 10, 2018– Proving its unparalleled quality and reputation among trade professionals, Trex Company(NYSE:TREX), the world’s #1 premium decking and railing brand, edged out its competitors once again to secure the highest number of top spots in Builder magazine’s 2018 Brand Use Study.

For the 11th year in a row – an unprecedented streak achieved by no other manufacturer – Trex® was honored as the “brand used most” and “brand used most in the past two years” for the composite/PVC decking category. Trex also took the top position in the “quality” category in this year’s study.

This year’s results further solidify Trex’s leadership position. More than 34 percent of respondents selected Trex as the brand they specify and use most – twice the number of the closest competitor. Trex also prevailed as the “brand used most in the past two years” category, receiving 15 percent more votes than the closest competitor. In the “quality” category, which appraises product performance and ease of installation, Trex earned the highest rating among its competitors, a 5.8 on a 7-point scale.

“Year after year, the results of the Builder Brand Use Study prove without question that there’s one brand contractors and industry professionals turn to when it comes to quality, performance and reliability – and that’s Trex,” said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex. “For more than 25 years, we’ve built an unshakeable reputation by continually delivering on our brand promise of performance, innovation and aesthetics, and we’re proud to not only have earned, but maintained, our status as the leader in the industry.”

The 2018 Builder Brand Use Study, sponsored by Hanley Wood and conducted by The Farnsworth Group, a leading industry market research firm, surveyed nearly 1,000 professional builders, contractors and industry professionals. Highlights of the study are published in the April 2018 issue of Builder as well as posted to Builder’s website, builderonline.com.

Internships Make a Difference at MRS

As education is an important element to us as a company in all aspects, MRS would like to introduce you to our 2017 summer interns. Every summer we hire students looking for experience in all different fields and educate them through various departments of our company. Our interns have worked on projects in operations, marketing, accounting, and sales. We are always looking to include our interns in on meetings and introduce them to important business people we work with on a day- to-day basis. We use our resources to include our interns in as many aspects of the business as we can, so they are able to learn and understand how we operate as not only a business, but a wholesale distribution center. Meet our interns!

Our Office Interns: Kate Jepson & Autumn Wickstrom

Kate is a rising junior at the University of South Carolina, she came to us the summer of 2016 and since being here has worked closely with our Accounting Manager, Sandra in various accounting tasks as Kate is pursuing a degree in Accounting and Finance. In addition to working with Sandy, Kate works with our dispatcher and our inside salesmen in preparing our daily routes and prepare paperwork for our shipments.

Autumn is also a rising junior at East Carolina University. Autumn is pursuing a degree in construction management and business administration and joined the MRS team this May. After working outside in our warehouse for a week to understand our products and operations, she has transitioned into the office working on our small orders and UPS shipments. She has also helped in various other office projects.

Our Warehouse Interns: Peter Jepson, Michael Gordon, Mark Kinol, and Chris Colon

Peter, Mike, and Mark are returning warehouse interns, the boys joined our ops team June of 2016 and since then have been given more responsibilities in the warehouse. After graduating from the Delbarton School this May the boys are all preparing for college. Peter is headed to Virginia Tech to participate in the Corps Cadets. Mike is headed north to Tufts to compete on their hockey team, and Mark is headed west to pursue an engineering degree at the University of Southern California. It is our hope that the boys will return to help us outside on their college breaks and vacations. Wish them luck as they embark on this new chapter of their lives.

Chris joined the boys this year, also a graduate from Delbarton, Chris joined us at the beginning of the month and has been getting accustomed to the operations of our warehouses. He has helped with shrink wrapping and cutting samples. The boys also are a big help in keeping things smooth outside in our busy season in order to maintain error free order pulling and cleanliness, as customers are frequently coming by to pick up orders. Chris will be leaving for the University of Michigan in August and we wish him luck as well. We hope he returns with the other boys, as his hard work around the warehouse has not gone unnoticed this summer.

Manufacturers Reserve Supply Now Offers Grayne™ Engineered Composite Shingles

IRVINGTON, NEW JERSEY, JUNE 16, 2017 – Manufacturers Reserve Supply (MRS), premier wholesale building materials distributor to lumber yards, specialty dealers and home centers, today announced the addition of Grayne Engineered Shingles to their roster of siding options. Dedicated to offering customers best-in-class building materials, MRS recognizes the value Grayne provides as natural cedar replacement, making it easier than ever to achieve an authentic cedar wood look – without the maintenance.

Available in 5″ White Cedar and 7.5″ Red Cedar composite shingles, and in multiple pre-finished color variations, Grayne features true-to-life graining patterns and a high-performance, moisture and weather-resistant surface. This ensures the highest durability and lowest upkeep for beauty that withstands time, and the elements. And to capture cedar’s exact on-house aesthetics, Grayne can be installed in the same layout as cedar shingles with no keyway stacks thanks to its patent-pending, dual-offset installation method.

“We are excited to partner with The Tapco Group on their Grayne product line” says Brian Boyd, General Manager of MRS. “With the addition of Grayne’s line of revolutionary engineered shingles, we will now stock over 100 SKUs of shingles and shakes. Until this point our siding offering has only been wood, so we are excited to expand into a quality composite product.”

MRS seeks to distribute materials upon which relationships may be built. At Grayne, an extension of The Tapco Group, maintaining relationships with customers and vendors is part of its long-standing history of high-performance products and outstanding service.

“We are looking forward to a successful partnership with MRS” said Jeff Relken, Regional Business Manager for the Mid-Atlantic. “MRS is a clear market leader in channel education and value added customer service. Both of these attributes will greatly benefit the launch of Grayne and generating sales with both new and existing customers.”
