Trex looks for growth in backyard pergolas

Winchester, Va.-based Trex Co. entered into a licensing agreement with Manassas, Va.-based Backyard America to develop and market Trex Pergola kits manufactured with cellular PVC TrexTrim.

“Through our agreement with Backyard America, Trex will expand our brand beyond the deck -- as pergolas become increasingly popular design options for patios, yards and gardens,” said Ronald Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “With this launch, professionals and consumers will be offered yet another high-style and low-maintenance Trex product to efficiently and cost-effectively enhance outdoor spaces.”

TrexTrim is described by the company as "durable and low-maintenance." Trex is the largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products.
