Trex Company Expands Licensing Agreement With Poly-Wood, Inc.
Trex Outdoor Furniture Collection to Include New Options for a Complete Outdoor Living Space
WINCHESTER, Va., June 14, 2011 – Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, announced that it has expanded its original September 2010 licensing agreement with Syracuse, Ind.-based Poly-Wood, Inc., to develop and market additional categories of stylish and comfortable outdoor living furniture. Under the expanded agreement, the Trex Outdoor Furniture™ collection will grow to include porch swings, rockers and benches along with retractable patio and deck shade umbrellas. All new designs will combine style, comfort and durability and will complement low-maintenance and eco-friendly Trex outdoor living spaces.
“Our relationship with Poly-Wood has significantly expanded our brand presence in the outdoor living arena,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “With the expansion of our agreement, we’ll be able to not only offer consumers a complete spectrum of outdoor furnishings and accessories, but also provide our professional partners with additional opportunities for sales.”
Featuring beautiful craftsmanship with an emphasis on comfort, the Trex Outdoor Furniture collection currently includes seating options like Adirondack chairs, ottomans, settees, sofas and chaise lounges, as well as coffee tables, side tables and dining sets. Each piece is available in a variety of distinctive colors that may be mixed and matched with Trex Transcend® decking and railing for a completely customized outdoor living space. The line boasts Trex's signature curved look, thermoformed contours and generous seat widths, as well as cushions and pillows in a range of Sunbrella® fabrics.
True to the brand's green heritage, Trex Outdoor Furniture is an environmentally responsible choice. Created from Poly-Wood’s unique blend of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) raw materials, the furniture is manufactured from more than 90 percent recycled content – including post-consumer materials, such as milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles.
Durable and weather-resistant, Trex Outdoor Furniture features the same low maintenance and durability as the core Trex product line. It won't rot, splinter or crack, and – unlike wood furniture – doesn't require staining, sealing, painting or refinishing to remain looking beautiful over time. Additionally, Trex Outdoor Furniture shares the same enhanced benefits as the high-performance Trex Transcend product line with exceptional resistance to food spills, insects, mold and mildew, salt spray and other environmental elements often encountered in backyards and on patios, decks and beaches. A five-year residential warranty offers extra protection.
