Trex Kicks Off Expansion Project

Trex Kicks Off Expansion Project

Trex Co. has broken ground on a new decking plant in Frederick County, Va.
The new decking plant, situated adjacent to its existing production site, is part of a $200-million multi-year capital investment program that will allow Trex to increase production output for future projected growth. Trex is also in the process of installing additional capacity at its Fernley, Nv., site that began coming online earlier this year. The additional lines are scheduled to come online in the second quarter of 2020
The new Virginia capacity will begin to come online in the first quarter of 2021.
“This is a very exciting time for Trex with all signs pointing to continued growth and escalating demand,” said Jim Cline, president and CEO. “Given our strategic focus on delivering best-in-class products and driving increased conversion from the wood decking market, expanding our production capacity and workforce was inevitable. We’ve been planning this for some time and have been eager to break ground and welcome new talent into the Trex family.”
