Trex Company, a world-leading manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products has entered into a distribution agreement with Replas, Australia’s leading manufacturer of recycled plastic products.

The new distribution partnership is expected to significantly expand Trex’s presence throughout Eastern Australia, better positioning the company to capture additional share of the country’s wood-alternative decking and railing market.

Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex explains that their alliance with Replas will considerably increase Trex’s sales footprint in Australia and ensure that high-performance Trex outdoor living products are available to building professionals and homeowners throughout the entire country. Replas’ robust distribution infrastructure, sales resources and warehousing facilities, together with Trex’s manufacturing expertise will help establish the decking and railing products specialist as a leading outdoor living brand in Australia.

Beginning July, Replas will distribute Trex decking and railing in the States of Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania – as well as the Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory and New Zealand.

Mark Yates, principal director for Replas describes the partnership as a natural fit, as both companies possess unparalleled brand recognition and nearly four decades of salvaging plastic waste from landfills and repurposing it into low-maintenance, long-lasting products that appeal to both consumers and contractors for their quality, beauty and eco-consciousness.

Trex Outdoor Living Products

Trex decking combines a tough finish that resists stains, scratches and mould with a distinctive, aesthetic and natural-looking, wood-grain pattern in deep, saturated colours. The highly durable Trex decking won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter, resulting in low maintenance. Upkeep is hassle-free since the product requires no sanding, staining or painting, and food spills wash off easily with just soap and water.

Trex modular railing is designed to pair beautifully with any colour of Trex decking to allow maximum design flexibility. Trex decking is backed by a 25-year Limited Residential Fade and Stain Warranty.

All Trex decking products are manufactured from 95% recycled content including reclaimed wood and sawdust, as well as recycled plastic from many common household items such as sandwich bags, newspaper sleeves and grocery bags.

Trex saves approximately 300,000 tonnes of plastic and wood scrap from landfill sites every year, underlining the company’s commitment to green principles and practices. Trex has also received an International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) SAVE Verification for Recycled Content.
