Peter Krihak, CEO of Holbrook Lumber, stated, "We've been partners with AERT since 2007 and appreciate their commitment to Holbrook. Our strong partnership and mutual dedication to growing the business in a less than desirable economic environment has allowed MoistureShield to see positive growth over the past three years." He went on to say, "MoistureShield products provide an exceptional value without compromising quality. The product has proven itself to be worthy over the years, having never experienced a field failure."
"The AERT team was proud to participate and be involved with the fine Holbrook team in the design of their booth for their 100th anniversary in business," stated AERT CEO Joe G. Brooks.
"Holbrook has experienced consistent, strong, double digit growth the last several years, even in a down and uncertain economic environment with our ever increasing MoistureShield product line. AERT composites have the longest field history in the industry dating back to 1988. Over 30 million doors carry AERT components because they solved the problems of swelling, rot, and panel delamination. Likewise, AERT decking products have never experienced a structural field failure, even in ground contact or water applications. In fact, AERT composites, such as MoistureShield decking, are the only products in the industry designed and built for constant ground and water contact. MoistureShield decking has passed the test of time with flying colors and does not require costly additional petrochemical cap stocks to protect them from the elements of Mother Nature.
By being green, AERT utilizes technology in conjunction with recycled plastics to provide better value and performance to the consumer as well as jobs for Americans," stated Brooks. "They also qualify for LEED points for the builder. But most importantly, they look like real wood. The Holbrook team understands the importance of that in today's economy and has done a great job communicating that message to the marketplace. We salute Peter Krihak and the whole team on their company's 100th anniversary in business."
