Trex Reinforces Commitment to Employing U.S. Veterans
Trex Encourages Those with Strong Skills, Experience & History of Service to Country to Apply
WINCHESTER, Va., November 4, 2013 – Securing employment at home for Americans completing their military service is a constant challenge in these economic times. Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of high-performance wood-alternative decking and railing, is committed to doing its part to help.
Trex is embarking on a new hiring phase, the result of the company’s rapid growth and expansion of distribution worldwide. As November marks National Veterans Month, Trex Company is putting the call out to prospective job applicants with military backgrounds and encouraging them to apply for several open positions.
“Our country relies on this select group of men and women in the military service who dedicate their lives to defend America and our way of life,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “With this initiative, Trex is committed to help create a successful transition back to civilian life for U.S. veterans.”
As part of Trex’s commitment to U.S. veterans, the company works with local and national agencies to help veterans looking for employment. Trex works closely with the Virginia Employment Commission when job openings arise and utilizes relationships with military veteran search firms specializing in the placement of military personnel into civilian positions when appropriate opportunities become available.
“National Veterans Month is the ideal time to express our appreciation of our troops and reinforce our support of their efforts to continue their careers as civilians in this country,” Kaplan said. “We’re proud to be able to offer to qualified veterans the opportunity to apply for valuable positions.”
