Oldcastle APG is doubling its decking manufacturing capacity with an expansion at the MoistureShield plant in Springdale, Ark. Oldcastle APG said the investment will directly support its MoistureShield Elevate affordable capped wood composite decking line while also expanding geographical access to the new MoistureShield Meridian line with TruTexture surface.

“This expansion will greatly enrich our comprehensive portfolio and help meet the growing demand for sustainable outdoor living products nationally,” Ken O’Neill, executive vice president, National Group, Oldcastle APG, said in a prepared statement. “We doubled capacity just over a year ago, and are now set to double it again for our capped composite lines.”

Oldcastle APG said existing production lines, which support MoistureShield Vision with specialized DiamondDefense coating, will be upgraded in a Phase II expansion later in 2022.

“Dealers and distributors can expect the timing of the expansion to be fully executed for the Q2 decking demand, with inventory having immediate availability,” Matthew Bruce, vice president of sales for Oldcastle APG, said. “We’re excited to begin 2022 with renewed capacity that will allow our contractors to best serve their customers and give them a competitive edge to continue achieving success.”

Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, acquired MoistureShield in 2017 and composite decking brand has been a staple in the company’s portfolio, alongside Belgard pavers, Echelon masonry, Sakrete concrete mixes, and Amerimix mortars.
