Accsys expands US Accoya distribution6 October 2023
Accsys has expanded its North American footprint by adding the Warren Trask Company as a new distributor in the north-east of the US. The partnership will help to support Accsys’ US growth, ahead of the opening of Accsys’ first US Accoya plant in 2024.
In business since 1924, the Warren Trask Company has established itself as one of the top building materials wholesalers in the north-east. The company's operations encompass more than 30 acres in Lakeville, Massachusetts, with locations in Lakeville, MA and Menands, NY.
“Accoya ticks the boxes that traditional wood does not,” said Bernie Nugent, president of the Warren Trask Company. “Moisture-related swelling and difficulty in stability of wood when coated with dark colours now become problems of the past for decks and siding thanks to Accoya. Our goal is to make this sustainable wood option available and affordable through our specialty lumber yard market across the north-east along with our other best in class offerings. We value the partnership with Accsys in building this opportunity.”
“As our US Accoya production plant in Kingsport, Tennessee moves closer to its completion – scheduled for mid-2024 – this additional distribution supports the growing demand for our high-performance, sustainable building products,” said John Alexander, group sales director at Accsys. “We are pleased the Warren Trask Company has chosen to supply Accoya, improving the availability of a long-lasting, environmentally responsible building material.”
