One year ago marked a significant milestone for The AZEK Company and its community of employees, customers, partners, investors and broader stakeholders, as the company’s stock began trading publicly on the New York Stock Exchange on June 12, 2020.
With manufacturing facilities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and soon, Idaho, The AZEK Company is the industry-leading designer and manufacturer of beautiful, low maintenance and environmentally sustainable outdoor living products, including TimberTech® decking and Versatex® and AZEK Trim®.
Consistently recognized as the market leader in innovation, quality and aesthetics, products across our portfolio are made from up to 100% recycled material and primarily replace wood on the outside of homes, providing a long-lasting, eco-friendly, and stylish solution to consumers.
In becoming a public company, we have brought even more focus and accountability to balance our business goals with a shared sense of purpose and mission.
At AZEK, our approach — our journey — is not linear, but rather, one where the ends connect — a circle that creates the powerful engine driving our innovation, inclusivity, sustainability, business relationships and execution to create a more sustainable future.
In the last year, AZEK has announced a multi-phase capacity expansion program to increase decking capacity by 85%, including at our Wilmington-based facilities, invested in expanding our state-of-the-art recycling plant in Wilmington, launched several new decking, railing and exteriors products, launched a first-of-its-kind PVC recycling program to repurpose construction site and remodeling scrap back into production, deliberately sourced hard-to-recycle materials in order to reduce waste that would traditionally end up in landfills, committed to implementing a $15 minimum hourly wage, and grew our team by nearly 700 people.
Even during the challenges and uncertainty presented by COVID-19, we continue to embrace our culture of innovation, sustainability and sense of community, anchored in always doing the right thing. It is in times like these that our leadership in the industry and our company values matter more than ever.
Similarly, we remain committed to attracting and retaining the best and brightest talent at The AZEK Company. We work hard to ensure that our people feel safe, secure, valued, empowered and inspired, to bring their full, authentic selves to work.
Our approach to employee safety, health and wellness programs, leadership training and employee engagement activities supports a thriving employee environment. We would not be where we are today without the hard work and dedication of our employees.
Bright minds, innovative thinkers and people dedicated to creating a more sustainable future — this is the true face of AZEK. We remain committed to leading, innovating, inspiring, reinventing, and revolutionizing our industry to create a more sustainable future.
Come grow with us!
