Wolf, the York, Pa.-based distributor of cabinets and building materials that recently decided to stop distributing AZEK products, deepened its commitment to the CEVN line of PVC decking today when it announced it will be the exclusive supplier of CEVN in the 19 Eastern Seaboard states that it currently serves.
That exclusive arrangement starts Nov. 5, the same day Wolf will end its relationship with AZEK. (Story) . CEVN (pronouned "seven")--a New Jersey company whose decking is produced in Texas under license by the Taiwan-based Inteplast Group--claims to be the first dual-side, dual-colored PVC deckboard on the market. Wolf says the dual-colored design enables dealers to stock fewer deckboards but maintain the same number of SKUs.
CEVN will be available initially in six colors of dual-sided decking along with single-colored fascia and single-colored deckboards for stairs and other applications, Wolf said.
Along with distributing CEVN, Wolf gave notice last month that, over the next six months, the company will introduce two proprietary brands, Wolf Decking and Wolf Railing. Founded in 1843, Wolf describes itself as a nearly $200 million operation that is America's biggest supplier of kitchen cabinets. It owned a large number of lumberyards as well as its distribution arm before selling the yards a few years ago.
