Integrity Composites, a Maine-based manufacturer, announced it acquired the DuraLife composite decking line from GAF Building Materials. The company said it plans to continue making and shipping the line’s decking, railing, porch, and marine dock products. It will also continue operations at GAF’s production facility in Biddeford, Maine.
GAF announced in October that it planned to get out of the composite decking industry by the end of 2011, a little over four years after acquiring ElkCorp and its Elk Cross Timbers line of composite decking. GAF said it planned to close its Biddeford, Maine, and Lenexa, Kan., plants where the decking is made. This acquisition did not include the Lenexa location.
“We are extremely pleased to be manufacturing and shipping state of the art decking products to our customers and to have the opportunity to work key personnel, some of whom have been employed at the facility since its inception,” said Jeff True, general manager at Integrity Composites.
According to the press release, Integrity Composites is a Biddeford, Maine-based company with experience in manufacturing decking dating back over a decade.
