OrePac Building Products, Wilsonville, Or., has entered into a new exclusive distribution partnership with composite wood-alternative decking manufacturer Fiberon, leaving current distributors suddenly without the line.
The agreement, expected to go into effect later this year, will place OrePac as the sole distributor of Fiberon products in the Western United States once the current agreement expires with its existing supplier, Azek/TimberTech. Current distributors of Fiberon in the West include Weyerhaeuser, Western Woods and Bluelinx.
While the exact timeline of product availability remains unclear, a Weyerhaeuser distribution manager in Fontana, Ca., noted that Weyerhaeuser will stop offering Fiberon products at the end of August.
Western Woods is currently evaluating its situation and how quickly it will drop the line, and Denver is the westernmost market to which BlueLinx supplies Fiberon products, as well as other decking lines.
