U.S. Home Systems, Home Depot decking agreement to end
U.S. Home Systems, a manufacturer of custom home improvement products for Home Depot, has said it is no longer supplying decking products to the retailer in markets including the Midwest, Boston, Connecticut, Virginia Beach and Atlanta. The company noted that revenues from those markets were approximately $6 million in 2007.
U.S. Home Systems will continue to sell and install decking to Home Depot on a “non-exclusive basis” until Aug. 31 in northeastern and mid-Atlantic markets, including northern Virginia, Maryland, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York.
“U.S. Home Systems will also begin offering its deck products in these markets under its Designer Deck brand concurrently with the phasing out of (Home Depot) markets,” the manufacturer said in a statement. “The company will continue to manufacture wood deck component parts and related accessories at its Woodbridge, Va., facility to serve these markets.”
U.S. Home Systems said it will continue to offer kitchen and bath cabinet refacing products with Home Depot in several markets, the company noted.
“We will continue to build our presence in (Home Depot) markets and will strive to be a world class provider,” said Murray Gross, chairman and CEO of U.S. Home Systems, in a statement.
U.S. Home Systems is based in Lewisville, Texas.
