JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Natures Composites has entered into a new relationship with BlueLinx Corporation to distribute its decking material, sold under the name TerraDeck with plans to move into more markets during 2012.
BlueLinx, one of the leaders in building products distribution, sells to approximately 11,500 customers in 25,000 locations and is a major supplier to the residential, commercial, building, remodeling and repair market.
"Our relationship with BlueLinx means TerraDeck will be available to builders, remodelers and homeowners who are looking for a green, more sustainable option," said Kim Boos, National Sales Manager for Natures Composites.
TerraDeck uses rapidly renewable and reclaimed materials, including cellulose from wheat straw and recycled plastics. Natures Composites materials also have received ICC-ES verification for meeting industry code requirements.
Natures Composites' innovative use of highly renewable, locally sourced materials offers exceptional environmental benefits. Wheat straw, a byproduct of the agriculture industry, is put to productive use instead of wasted. Unlike wood, wheat is rapidly renewable, grown and harvested annually, and readily available from regional farmers. The company sources its recycled plastic from nearby recycling companies, providing a market for this growing supply stream of waste and keeping it out of landfills. This combination of strong wheat fiber and recycled plastics ensures the product will not splinter or crack, and offers protection from elements including moisture, UV rays, insects and rot damage without having to use or apply harmful chemicals, paint, stain or sealant.
