Washington Post Features Trex in Annual Ranking of Local Employers
WINCHESTER, Va., June 23, 2014 - Trex Company, the world“s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, recently was selected as one of the 2014 Top Workplaces by the Washington Post. The newspaper“s annual feature released on June 22 highlighted Trex“s leadership, compensation, training, workplace flexibility and diversity as key strengths that place Trex at the forefront of Washington-area companies.
"It“s always rewarding to be recognized for our business and workplace practices, especially by an authority as respected as the Washington Post," said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. "Trex has been a part of the Washington business community for more than 20 years, so this honor is particularly meaningful, as it truly is a reflection of the wonderful relationship we have with our employees and the outstanding work they do to produce the highest quality outdoor living materials available on the market today."
In addition to competitive compensation where every employee participates in an incentive bonus program, the company offers full medical coverage with three different plan design options, dental coverage and life insurance. In addition, Trex employees may also take advantage of a 401(k) savings plan with a one-to-one company match up to six percent, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, tuition reimbursement for continuing education, and an employee discount program on all Trex manufactured products.
"Trex“s leadership strives to provide a desirable workplace through its company practices and policies," added Jay Rudolph, senior director of human resources for Trex. "In the face of a sluggish economy, where cutting benefit programs in order to save money is more the rule than the exception, Trex has stood strong for its employees. Best in class products are created by best in class people. Striking a balance between the needs of the company and the needs of our people has resulted in low turnover and high employee satisfaction."
Since opening production lines on September 13, 1993, Trex Company, headquartered in Winchester, Virginia, has grown from 36 employees (11 of whom still work for Trex today) to more than 600 employees, with 400 based in the Winchester area. Today, Trex offers the industry“s widest array of high-performance composite outdoor living products, from decking, railing and fascia to outdoor lighting and steel deck framing.
