AZEK adds moulding styles to its collection

BY Ken Clark

Scranton, Pa.-based AZEK Building Products introduced new architectural moulding styles for ornate, classic or historic designs.

With the addition of a group of four new creative moulding profiles, AZEK Mouldings now includes 25 distinct moulding profiles that endure weather or assist in water management. The new styles are: 

• AZEK Crosshead Pediment: This profile consolidates three unique profiles in one — a trimboard, rams crown and drip edge. Commonly used above the entranceway or garage door, this profile provides a classic and distinctive layered look. Because it’s pre-formed, it saves the time and labor of cutting and installing three separate profiles.

• AZEK Cove Crown: This profile may be combined with others to create elaborate crown moulding profiles and is typically used along the intersection of a wall and ceiling.

• AZEK Eight-Inch Crown: This larger version of the popular traditional crown moulding provides a stately appearance and is most commonly used along the intersection of a wall and ceiling. Built-up profiles can be created by combining this with other mouldings for an ornate statement.

• AZEK Fluted/Reeded Casing: This reversible profile provides two moulding options in one.  Reed mouldings are often used to build elaborate door and window casings, while fluted profiles are standard when building Neoclassical style-casing mouldings.

Diablo and Trex to offer co-branded saw blade

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Trex Company has entered into a licensing agreement with Freud America to introduce the first saw blade specifically designed for cutting composite decking materials.  Diablo, Freud’s premier brand of construction tools, will be introducing the new blade series for maximum performance and highest quality of finish when cutting composite decking materials.

“Through our agreement with Freud America/Diablo, we’re addressing the needs of both contractors and do-it-yourselfers, who for 20 years have not had the opportunity to purchase a saw blade designed with the efficiency, longevity and precision to cut composite materials,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex.  “With this blade, we’re not only offering the confidence and security that comes with the industry-leading Trex and Diablo names, but we’re also expanding Trex’s brand presence into the tool departments of retailers across North America.”

The Diablo/Trex co-branded blade will be offered in three sizes – 12”, 10” and 7¼” – for use on hand-held, miter and table saws.  This new saw blade series has a modified triple chip tooth grind design, Perma-SHIELD non-stick coating, and specific TiCo™ Hi-Density carbide to deliver maximum performance.  In addition, all Diablo/Trex saw blades have a super thin kerf design which requires less cutting power, making them ideal for underpowered saws at the jobsite.

Double-digit comps boost Tractor Supply in Q1

BY HBSDEALER Staff

A mild spring of weather conducive to farm and ranch sales propelled Tractor Supply Corp. to a strong first quarter.

The Brentwood, Tenn.-based farm and ranch retailer saw same-store sales increase 11.5% in the first quarter ended March 31. Net sales increased 22.0% to $1.02 billion.

Net income for the quarter was $40.3 million, compared to net income of $18.3 million in the same quarter last year.

"We are delighted to have reached another milestone, achieving record first quarter sales in excess of one billion dollars for the first time in Tractor Supply’s history,” said Jim Wright, chairman and CEO. “Customers responded favorably to our spring products and the continual enhancements we have been making to our merchandise assortments.  Our proactive planning allowed us to capture the earlier spring selling season in Southern markets and we reacted quickly to capitalize on the early spring weather seen in March. We continue to evolve our assortments and the in-store experience to ensure we have the right product and marketing programs in place to keep customers highly engaged throughout the spring and summer selling seasons."

The company opened 33 new stores and closed one store in the first three months of the year, bringing the total to 1,117 stores in 44 states.
