Dedication to Innovation

Pushing the boundaries of what's possible for alternative materials, our innovation can be seen in our patented woodgrain and custom-engineered materials.  But our dedication to innovation goes far beyond our patented products. Our team is here to help you innovate as well. As the industry leader, we can help you find new ways that plastic lumber can increase your ROI and decrease your cost of maintenance.
