Deal Gives Trex Entry into Commercial Market
(Aug. 15, 2017) Trex Co., Winchester, Va., has acquired the assets of Brooklyn Park, Mn.-based SC Company, the country’s leading manufacturer and supplier of custom architectural railings and staging solutions.
The purchase expands Trex’s reach into the growing commercial arena and serves as the foundation for the launch of its Trex Commercial Products subsidiary.
“We have been eyeing the commercial market for some time and are thrilled to have found an ideal entryway with SC Company,” said James E. Cline, president and CEO of Trex. “Beyond diversifying our business, this acquisition increases our internal capabilities with custom design and engineering, while also providing us access to—and credibility within—the contract architect and specifier community. Additionally, we foresee exciting synergies for further strengthening our position in the residential market.”
Founded in 1990, SC has two successful product categories: SC Railing and Staging Concepts. SC Railing custom-designs engineered railings for stadiums and arenas, as well as more standardized architectural and aluminum systems for commercial and high-rise applications. Staging Concepts supplies saging equipment for the global performing arts, sports and event production markets.
Trex Commercial Products will operate out of SC’s existing facilities in Brooklyn Park and Fort Mill, S.C.
