Distributor Purchases Endeck

Eastern Metal Supply, Lake Worth, Fl., has acquired Enduris’ Endeck capped cellular PVC product lines of deck, dock and fascia boards. EMS will continue to service all of Enduris’ Endeck customer base and aggressively promote the product lines.

EMS had become Enduris’ largest customer for high-end dock, deck and fascia boards and was distributing it primarily in the eastern third of the U.S. When Jacksonville, Fl.-based Enduris decided to move away from manufacturing in the third quarter of 2017, the opportunity arose for EMS to continue the line.

The purchase includes all tooling, embossing equipment, proprietary formulations, testing, certifications, trademarks, literature, and inventory. EMS planned to restart the manufacturing in December. The early focus will be to quickly rebuild inventories in all EMS locations and at other master distributors of the Endeck lines.
