Trex creating 89 new jobs in Winchester

WINCHESTER, Va. — Trex has invested $12.3 million in the City of Winchester and $3.1 million in Frederick County to expand its manufacturing operations. The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of high-performance wood-alternative decking and railing,

Additionally, Trex plans to lease newly constructed warehouse space in Frederick County for a training facility and plastics recycling center and to relocate a Trex distribution center for deck railing. The expansion will create up to 89 new jobs in Winchester in the coming years. The new warehouse spaces, with an estimated value of $50 million, are being developed and constructed by The Shockey Companies, another Virginia-based company.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe said, “I am thrilled to announce that another valuable Virginia business is expanding its manufacturing operation and creating new jobs for people in our commonwealth. Attracting investment and growing jobs in the advanced manufacturing sector is a key component of our efforts to build a new Virginia economy. Trex’s significant investment is a great testament to the incredible assets we have in the region and the Commonwealth.”

Trex has more than 20 years of product experience. Stocked in more than 6,700 retail locations throughout the world, Trex outdoor living products offer a wide range of style options with fewer ongoing maintenance requirements than wood, as well as a truly environmentally responsible choice.
