WINCHESTER, VA., January 13, 2022 – Trex Company, the world’s #1 brand of composite decking and railing, innovator of high performance, low-maintenance and eco-friendly outdoor living products, and a leading national provider of custom-engineered commercial railing systems, is set to break ground on what will be the company’s new global headquarters. With all required permits now approved, Trex will begin construction this month on a brand new 64,000-square-foot office facility situated on eight acres alongside Crossover Boulevard and Interstate 81 in Winchester, Virginia.
This news comes on the heels of another major announcement by the composite decking giant, which recently revealed intentions to construct a new manufacturing campus in Little Rock, Arkansas, marking the company’s third U.S. production facility.
“It is an exciting time to be with Trex,” said Bryan Fairbanks, president and CEO of Trex Company. “As demand for our products continues to grow and as we plan for the future, these expansion initiatives are strategic investments that should help to ensure we have the capacity and resources to effectively meet the needs of our customers while affording us bandwidth to pursue new opportunities.”
With construction slated to begin in January 2022, the company anticipates a mid-2023 move-in date. The new building will house approximately 200 corporate employees and will encompass eco-friendly elements that reflect the company’s environmental legacy and commitment to sustainability.
Between its new global headquarters and the recently completed decking production facility at its Shawnee Drive campus, Trex expects to bring more than 350 new jobs to the Winchester and Frederick County area. The company is currently hiring for positions across departments including engineering, R&D/product development, information technology, human resources, operations, sales, supply chain and production.
Trex offers leading pay, benefits and training, including fast-track training and opportunities for quick advancement for experienced line technicians. Information about available positions is posted online to the Trex Careers page at https://careers.trex.com.
“We have a long, rich history in the Winchester and Frederick County area and are proud to be part of such a strong and supportive community,” noted Fairbanks. “This is our home, and we are pleased to be able to contribute to the health and prosperity of the area through jobs creation, community involvement and national recognition from our industry-leading products and brand.”
Recently named one of the nation’s 100 fastest-growing companies by Fortune magazine, Trex opened its first production lines in Virginia with 36 employees – some of whom still work for the company. Over the past two-and-a-half decades, the company has transformed into a $1 billion revenue* manufacturer with more than 1,700 employees, industry-leading brand recognition and unsurpassed channel placement in more than 6,700 retail outlets across 40+ countries worldwide.
