MRS Announces Partnership with Ply Gem
Irvington, N.J.—Manufacturers Reserve Supply and Ply Gem have partnered to enhance the distribution of Ply Gem PVC trim in the mid-Atlantic market place. Ply Gem’s products provide builders and architects with products they can have confidence in.
Steve Boyd, President of MRS, said “We are very excited to announce this partnership with Ply Gem on our PVC trim. This has been the most extensive research that I have done on any product line in 35 years. We looked at 11 different manufacturers from around the world and found that the Ply Gem product had all the best qualities: density, tight tolerances, consistent quality, on time shipping, marketing, promotion and dedication to growing the product line. Additionally, these are the same machines with the same people in the same location as we have been buying from for the last 8 years. Ply Gem purchased the Simonton Window (Fortune Brands) operation and the Simex plant in St Mary’s, W. Va. This is the same plant that made the product for Fypon (another Fortune Brands company). This will make a smooth transition as nothing will change except the name on the unit wrapper”
Shane Short, General Manager of Ply Gem Trim & Mouldings said, “It’s my pleasure to announce that Ply Gem trim products will now be available through Manufacturers Reserve Supply. MRS is an outstanding supplier of building products in the markets they serve, and this partnership will strengthen our platform for growth in the years to come.”
Three months ago, MRS announced distribution of Typar Building Products.
