By pushing our product through an already successful and established sales channel, Slide-Lok has truly leveraged its ability to service a large portion of the east coast population with minimal logistical obstacles.

Slide-Lok's presence on the eastern seaboard takes a giant leap forward with newly formed Slide-Lok By Thompson Creek. This exciting news adds a new dimension to Slide-Lok's expanding Master Dealer network that allows for the assimilation of Slide-Lok's business and distribution models into an existing sales channel.

As a predominant leader within the home improvement industry in the Northern Virginia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas, Thompson Creek Window Company recognized the opportunity of entering the exploding market for garage cabinets, garage interiors and home storage which is pushing nearly $2 billion in annual sales. Their search for a respected partner ended when they met with Slide-Lok, the industry leading manufacturer of plywood garage cabinets, garage flooring, slat-wall and newly introduced modular closet systems.

By serving and marketing to their substantial customer base, Slide-Lok By Thompson Creek will be able to effortlessly integrate Slide-Lok's quality garage cabinets and garage floor coatings product line into their existing product offering and sales channel. Rick Wuest, owner of Thompson Creek Window Company appointed Skip LaBella to launch their aggressive venture into the garage interiors and home storage markets.

LaBella explains why they chose Slide-Lok, "We really did our homework before we selected Slide-Lok to partner with. We met with and interviewed all of the major players in the garage interiors and home storage markets and in the end it came down to three major factors that separated Slide-Lok from the rest of the field: quality product line, distribution through the home builder channel and unmatched sales and marketing support."

Brian Strayer, president of Slide-Lok stated, "By pushing our product through an already successful and established sales channel, Slide-Lok has truly leveraged its ability to service a large portion of the east coast population with minimal logistical obstacles." Strayer added, "Strategically partnering with a company like Thompson Creek Window Company sets a precedent that paves the way for future collaborations with existing service businesses."
