Manufacturer Spotlight: Trex and Arbor Forest

Discover Trex’s composite decking products, which are now available to find, select and specify via NBS Source. 

trex-header

Arbor Forest Products is the exclusive distributor of composite decking brand Trex. 

We caught up with Marie Ennals, Marketing Manager to find out more about Arbor Forest Products and Trex’s range of products, which are now available to specify via NBS Source. Here’s what Marie said…


Operating on a large scale while maintaining the culture of a small company, Arbor Forest Products is a UK-based independent timber importer and processor – and our business has been built around a passion for people and customer service.

We pride ourselves on supplying quality products to the building, construction and DIY trades through independent merchants. Our 90-acre site in North Lincolnshire offers a wide range of products – including cladding and shed materials, primed MDF mouldings, roofing battens, and structural and landscaping timber.  

Through our decking division, Arbordeck, we also supply a total softwood timber deck solution for merchants, installers and specifiers. The products within our Arbordeck softwood decking range are sourced from northern latitudes and manufactured from high quality European redwoods, while maintaining strong environmental accreditations.

Products within the Arbordeck range include deck boards – with low-slip alternatives available – joists, railings, newels, infill panels, and so much more. Arbordeck is also proud to be the exclusive distributor of Trex® composite decking products in the UK. 

US-based Trex has continued to define the composite decking market for 25 years by offering a low-maintenance, high-performance outdoor living solution. 
Trex and Arbor Forest have made a concerted effort to enter the specification sector and work further up the supply chain to design stage. This is to help ensure that only top-quality, high-performance products are specified into UK landscape and construction projects.

"Our NBS Source profile allows us to further showcase Trex’s extensive product range and its many benefits to specifiers. Our profile offers a wealth of information about Trex composite decking, from individual product details to case studies."

Ideal for the sustainability-conscious, Trex composite decking boards are made from up to 95% recycled materials – and the company has never felled a tree for deck manufacturing since its launch in 1996. The boards won’t rot, split, stain or fade and feature a unique shell technology for enhanced protection against the weather.

Thanks to the 25-year Trex limited residential warranty, it’s the ideal choice for those looking for a durable decking solution which requires minimal maintenance and is as stylish as it is eco-friendly. And with an expanding range of complementary products now available – such as the Trex Lighting Collection™ and Trex Signature Railing® - there’s a Trex deck to suit all tastes and budgets.

NBS Source enables specifiers to access our key product information quickly and easily. The platform also allows specifiers to make an educated product decision, helping to manage risk for both themselves and their clients. 

We also use NBS Chorus to collaborate directly with specifiers on project specifications, which helps to streamline the process and produce accurate specifications.
