Trex occupies new facilities in Frederick County
Winchester-based Trex Co. Inc., a major producer of decking and railing, has expanded into two new warehouses in Frederick County.
The Shockey Cos., a 120-year-old, Winchester-based general contracting and construction management firm, developed and built the facilities to house the company’s distribution and warehouse functions.
The first building completed has an initial capacity of 350,000 square feet. The building was site-planned, zoned, constructed, and open for business on an accelerated schedule.
The building includes Trex University, a 10,000-square-foot education center where distributors and contractors can learn about Trex products.
Trex leased an additional 230,000 square feet in the building for pre-packaged railing products that are ready for distribution.
Last month, Shockey completed construction of a second building (407,000 square feet) that is dedicated to the receiving and handling of polyethylene plastics to be recycled.
Trex handles more than 400 million pounds of plastic and wood scrap each year.
