NADRA Atlanta Chapter Meeting Re-Cap
We tried something different with our second meeting of the year by hosting the first “Speed Dating with Deck Builders” event at the Ivy in Buckhead. We had over 51 attendees at the meeting which included several first time visitors. I want to thank the following Deck Builder members that agreed to be at the host tables: David Tibbetts, Atlanta Decking, John Harper and Joel Harper with Leisure Time Decks, O.C. & Mary Kirk with Just Decks, Rick Goldstein and Chapin LaChance with the Mosaic Group, Mike Reasons and John Lea with DeckSouth, Frank Pologruto with Decks & More, John Paulin with Tailor Decks, Bryan Miller with OutBack Decks, and Steve Matrangos & Craig Dickerson with DeckSource.
Thanks you all so much for giving your time and giving this new idea a chance. We only have six meetings a year and this format opened up the opportunity for more of our great Vendors to get in front of the deck builder members. I would also like to thank the following Vendor members who bought “dates” for the event: Weyerhauser/ Cox, Tamko, Homeland Vinyl, Trex, Azek, Dixie Plywood, NyloBoard, MoistureShield, Fiberon and Universal Forest Products. We could not have a chapter without the ongoing support of so many members and I want to thank each of you for giving your resources to this meeting and to the chapter.
We had an opportunity to take care of normal business and to discuss forming a local code committee made up of Rick Goldstein, Steve Matrangos and Craig Dickerson. Rick and Steve both spoke to the formation of the committee and invited all members to contact them with ideas and specific topics they may want to cover. We also spoke about the National initiative for Code’s and to remind everyone to fill out the survey that is online and to contact Glenn Mathewson with any information prior to his going to the ICC meeting. We were also able to give away a number of door prizes to the contractor members because of donations from Tamko, Weyerhauser, Cox , Fiberon, Universal Forest Products, and Fortress.
Our next meeting will be held on June the 18th at the Ivey in Buckhead. Our sponsor for the meeting is Fastenmaster and we are currently looking for a guest speaker so please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks again for being a part of our Chapter and for all that each of you do to make us successful.
Respectfully Submitted ,

August 27, 2012 – Scranton, PA | CPG International Inc. today announces the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire TimberTech, a subsidiary of the Crane Group and well-known manufacturer of high quality, low maintenance decking, railing and accessory products. CPG International is the parent company of AZEK Building Products, a leading manufacturer of premium, low-maintenance exterior products that includes decking, railing, porch boards, trim, mouldings and recycled composite pavers.
“The ultimate goal is for our AZEK business and TimberTech to join forces,” said Eric K. Jungbluth, CEO of CPG, “We believe this powerful combination will not only create the largest manufacturer in the trim, decking and railing market, but will also create a premier company in the industry as both entities manufacture highly engineered, outdoor living solution products that offer exceptional aesthetics, performance and longevity.”
Both with strong brand recognition, AZEK Building Products and TimberTech are respected not only for superior products, but also for their leading distribution partners across the U.S and Canada. Tanny Crane, president of the Crane Group, said she is confident that the acquisition positions TimberTech well for future growth. “This was a difficult decision for our company and our family, but we think this acquisition positions the business to continue to be a leader in its product lines,” said Crane.
“This is an exciting opportunity,” remarked Jungbluth. “From our perspective, AZEK and TimberTech are a great fit. This represents the joining of two strong brands focused on quality and innovation. Both have solid relationships with distributor and dealer partners with the proven ability to redefine an industry,” added Jungbluth.
