The multi-year supply agreement is for delivery of ChoiceDek products in a variety of unit sizes, including by the carton, and special order quantities.

"Both AERT and Lowe's have invested a significant amount of time and capital in the development of ChoiceDek, which has evolved into an innovative product line with great consumer value," stated AERT President, Tim Morrison.

AERT CEO, Joe Brooks, commented on the agreement stating, "AERT is looking forward to working with BlueLinx as we continue to introduce innovative products, grow ChoiceDek sales, and make improvements that will positively affect AERT and its associates and shareholders."
