WINCHESTER, Va., April 1, 2015 - This awards season, Trex is raking in the platinum, gold - and green. Trex Company, the world''s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, recently took top honors in the decking products category of the Green Builder Media 2015 Reader''s Choice Awards, for the fourth year running. More than 34 percent of readers who voted selected Trex® decking as the "greenest" in the industry.
This is the latest recognition in a bevy of honors Trex already has received from industry professionals this year. Recently, Trex captured three 2015 ADEX Platinum and three ADEX Gold Awards from architects and designers for its high-performance outdoor living products. The company also swept the Builder 2015 Brand Use Study, in which Trex was ranked by building professionals as the brand of choice in all four categories for composite decking, including quality and brand used most often.
"It is always rewarding to have our products and work recognized by our valued pro partners and industry experts, but these latest awards are particularly meaningful as each reflects a core Trex value," said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. "Our unprecedented sweep of the Builder Brand Use Study is a clear indication that contractors and building pros value the durability and high-performance of Trex materials, while the ADEX Awards reflect our commitment to beautifully designed outdoor living products. However, this latest recognition by Green Builder Media speaks to the heart of Trex - our commitment to leveraging recycled materials."
Built on eco-friendly principles and values, Trex products offer a truly environmentally responsible choice to consumers. As the largest polyethylene plastic recycler in the United States, Trex annually turns more than 1.5 billion recycled plastic bags - as well as other household plastics like newspaper sleeves and sandwich bags - into eco-friendly outdoor living products. In addition, Trex salvages and keeps more than 400 million pounds of plastic and wood scrap out of landfills each year.
