Parksite Plunkett-Webster (PPW) to Carry WeatherBest(R) Decking for Fiber Composites, LLC
Parksite Plunkett-Webster, a premier wholesale distributor of fine building products, will become the newest WeatherBestÃ® composite decking and railing distributor on Oct. 11. The move quickly follows Fiber Composites' purchase of the WeatherBestÃ® line from Louisiana-Pacific Corporation.
"PPW has a long, successful history of developing the composite category through industry education and a focus on supporting the pro dealer. With Fiber Composites' acquisition of Louisiana Pacific's Idaho operation and WeatherBestÃ®, we feel that partnering with such a prominent distributor will help rapidly expand the WeatherBestÃ® brand and build continued success on the basis of quality and service," said Doug Mancosh, president of Fiber Composites."Our customers told us that they wanted higher quality composite decking options," said George Pattee, CEO of The Parksite Group. "This arrangement signifies our commitment to the composite category and to meeting our customers' needs."
Backed by a 20-year limited warranty, WeatherBestÃ® decking and railing is highly resistant to warping, splitting and splintering. High levels of mold inhibitors and UV protection contribute to both longevity and enduring, beautiful aesthetics.
Parksite Plunkett-Webster will begin distributing the entire line of WeatherBestÃ® composite decking immediately in all 11 distribution facilities. These operating facilities - Apex, N.C.; Baltimore, Md.; Batavia, Ill.; Huntsville, Ala.; Louisville, Ohio; North Brunswick, N.J.; Denver, Colo.; South Windsor, Conn.; Syracuse, N.Y.; Tampa, Fla.; and Atlanta, Ga. - provide distribution and sales support throughout 27 states.
