Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) August 27, 2009
Green Bay Decking, LLC announced today that production of GeoDeck™, the best-in-class composite decking and railing solution, will remain in Wisconsin. In addition, Green Bay Decking is strengthening its commitment to local businesses and communities throughout Wisconsin by implementing a "Wisconsin First" sourcing initiative.
As a result of these actions, Green Bay Decking will continue to manufacture GeoDeck at its 100,000-square-foot plant in Green Bay and further support the state economy by choosing Wisconsin-based suppliers and vendors when feasible. Green Bay Decking currently uses local vendors for a wide range of services including printing marketing materials and sourcing raw materials.
"In this tough financial climate, Green Bay Decking and its Wisconsin-based ownership team is proud to call Wisconsin home and to do all possible to expand our strong support of the local community and economy," said Lanny Jass, president, Green Bay Decking. "Over the next year, we look forward to continued growth and expanding our outreach to Wisconsin-based builders, dealers, suppliers, and vendors."
GeoDeck began production for national distribution in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2000. Eight years later, the GeoDeck Composite Decking was put on the market with out-of-state relocation a strong possibility. Recognizing the high quality of the product and determined to keep the company and its jobs at home in Wisconsin, a group of local area businessmen purchased the company on May 1, 2009.
Growth is expected to continue in 2010 when Green Bay Decking introduces its next generation of composite products in the residential, commercial, and marine industries.
