Sales decline at AERT

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (AERT), the maker of ChoiceDek decking products, announced that its net sales for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $8.8 million, down 37.1% from $14.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The Springdale, Ark. manufacturer attributed $4.6 million of the quarter’s reduction to an accrual for the refresh of inventory at Lowe’s.

AERT’s net loss for fiscal 2011, which ended Dec. 31, 2011, was $8.0 million, as compared to the 2010 net loss of $5.9 million.

The inventory refresh entails replacing the existing ChoiceDek boards at Lowe’s 1,700 stores with a new line called ChoiceDek Foundations, which is the fourth product introduction since the decking program with Lowe’s commenced in 1998. The new ChoiceDek Foundations is being launched in all Lowe’s stores for the 2012 deck building season. 

In addition to ChoiceDek, a plastic and wood composite that is sold exclusively at Lowe’s, AERT also manufacturers MoistureShield decking for the professional market. AERT said it continues to refine its advanced recycling operations in Watts, Okla. to provide a hedge against rising plastic feedstock costs. The company hopes to position itself for sales of recycled plastic to other manufacturers as well as improving the consistency of the plastic being used for its own decking.
