MRS adds James Hardie to its mix

Manufacturers Reserve Supply makes a deal with maker of fiber cement siding products.

MRS was founded in 1931.

Irvington, N.J.-based Wholesale distributor Manufacturers Reserve Supply has formed a partnership with James Hardie Building Products. Under the deal, MRS will offer the company’s siding, trim and backer board to its customers in 2018.

“Partnering with America’s No. 1 brand of siding helps us to achieve that vision,” said Brian Boyd, general manager and fourth generation of Manufacturers Reserve Supply.

“We’ve been serving the industry for more than 85 years now and delivering James Hardie products will only help build our already vast selection of products for our customers,” said Brian Boyd, general manager, of MRS.

The partnership will give customers access to James Hardie products, which are available primed or in 25 shades of James Hardie ColorPlus Technology colors in the Northeast market. ColorPlus Technology combines durability and beauty to create a lasting exterior product with baked-on color that resists chipping, cracking and peeling, according to the press release announcing the deal.

“MRS and James Hardie share a common goal of providing customers with extraordinary service and value,” said Rob Reber, strategic accounts manager for James Hardie. “Together we will continue that mission and deliver products that make it easier for builders and contractors to create projects that are as unique as they are durable.”

Established in 1931, MRS's name originated from reserving materials from manufacturers for its customers. The distributor services New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut.
