Trex Company Expands Mid-Atlantic Reach

Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, is expanding its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region with the addition of Pittsburgh-based Babcock Lumber Company to its distribution network. Babcock will supply dealers across western and central Pennsylvania, western New York and West Virginia with high-performance, low-maintenance Trex products.

“Babcock is well-known and respected throughout the industry for its commitment to its customers,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “With its experienced staff, high-quality and robust inventory, and timely delivery, it has earned a reputation as a supplier of choice. We are pleased to welcome them to our distribution network and are confident they will provide the highest level of service to our Mid-Atlantic dealers.”

For more than 126 years, Babcock Lumber has been recognized as a leading manufacturer of quality wood products. Building on this legacy, the company has strategically broadened its product offerings and now serves as a single source supplier to the lumber, building materials and kitchen and bath industries. An active industry leader, Babcock Lumber is the oldest member of the North American Wholesale Lumber Association (NAWLA) and has been a member of the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) since 1906.

“We are continually evaluating our offerings to ensure that we are supplying our customers with products and services that meet their needs and exceed their expectations,” said Bob Bootay, vice president and general manager, distribution group at Babcock Lumber. “Trex’s commitment to quality and service mirrors our own and the innovative Trex portfolio delivers the game-changing, high-performance products our customers seek.”

Trex products are offered through an extensive network of building products distributors and dealers, and are sold at more than 6,000 retail locations. For more information about Trex, visit www.trex.com.
