WOLF adds Poly-Ash Moulding to its lineup
WOLF has a new collection in its arsenal. Its Poly-Ash Moulding is a new line of exterior trim made with more than 70% recycled material that seeks to correct the limitations of wood and PVC.
The mouldings are made with Boral TruExterior Trim and are manufactured entirely in the U.S. They’re also covered by Boral TruExterior Trim’s 20-year limited warranty once painted.
Designed with durability in mind, the mouldings offer resistance to rotting, cracking, splitting and termites, and they eliminate the need for end-sealing or special adhesives.
They come in five designer profiles and 11 additional special order profiles, and they’re easy to cut, rout, miter and shape.
The line is now available exclusively to independent dealers across the 33 states in WOLF’s network.

Weyerhaeuser closes the deal on WRECO merger
Federal Way, Washington-based Weyerhaeuser Company announced the successful closing of a deal to separate its home-building business from its forest products core.
The previously announced "Reverse Morris Trust" transaction results in the merger of a TRI Pointe Homes subsidiary and Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Co., Weyerhaeusers’ home-building business. WRECO becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of TRI Pointe.
"The separation of WRECO focuses Weyerhaeuser on its forest products businesses while significantly enhancing shareholder value," said Doyle Simons, president and CEO.
As a result of this transaction, Weyerhaeuser received approximately $700 million in cash proceeds and retired over $1.9 billion worth of the company’s shares.
