Guardian Building Products to Distribute Deckorators in Eastern U.S.
Grand Rapids, Mich.— Two composite decking product lines, part of the Deckorators brand, are now available to customers in the Eastern U.S., through an agreement between Guardian Building Products (GBP) and an affiliate of Universal Forest Products, Inc., the manufacturer and distributor of Deckorators.
GBP’s locations in Boston, Mass., Waterville, Maine, Charlotte, N.C., and Baltimore are now stocking Deckorators Vault and Frontier decking lines.
“Guardian and Deckorators are launching one of the most innovative and trending decking offerings in the industry,” said Rick Preble, vice president of Alternative Materials for UFPI. “Deckorators is one of the most iconic and well-respected brands in the category, and adding Guardian to our exclusive list of distributors is exciting.”
The new relationship broadens the assortment of composite decking products available to pro-dealers in the GBP service area.
“We are excited to be adding this line just in time for the spring decking season,” said Tom Gaffey, regional vice president, Eastern U.S. region at GBP. “We are now able to offer a wide selection of Deckorators products — including the vast accessory lines for which Deckorators is well known. Our customers now have the benefit of access to the full line without having to make a significant stocking investment.”
