WOLF ramps up production of PVC decking
York, Pa.-based WOLF ramped up production of its WOLF PVC Decking – less than six months after the January 2011 introduction of the line, the company announced Tuesday.
WOLF President Craig Danielson said independent dealers who have evaluated the product have increased demand for the decking "dramatically," he said.
In addition to expanding production of WOLF PVC Decking, the company has added three new colors of PVC Porch – complementary products to WOLF PVC decking that include quarter-round, fascia and bull-nose trim.
WOLF develops products and programs for 3,000 pro dealer customers across 18 East Coast states.
