SCRANTON, Pa., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumbermen's Inc. of Grand Rapids, MI, has named AZEK Pavers from AZEK Building Products the "Most Innovative Product of the Year" at their annual Vendor Awards Dinner on Jan. 10th 2013. AZEK Pavers was selected for this award based on exceptional sales volume as compared to numerous other product offerings in the innovative products category. In addition to strong sales volume, Lumbermen's judged the AZEK Paver merchandising and sales support efforts to be outstanding throughout their service area that extends across the Ohio Valley region.
As a full-line distributor of AZEK Building Products, Lumbermen's has been distributing all of the AZEK products from five locations servicing Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Northern Kentucky since 2007. According to Rick Woltjer, VP Sales, Lumbermen's Inc., "We do not give this award out every year, but felt that AZEK Pavers made such a strong showing, it was very deserving of this award compared to other products that were considered. This year we had more than 25 vendors coming out with new SKUs, but AZEK Pavers stood out. When AZEK brings us a new product we know there's market acceptance behind it."
"AZEK Building Products is honored to have our AZEK Pavers selected as Lumbermen's "Most Innovative Product of the Year," said Jason Grommon, President of AZEK Building Products. "We are delighted with the support and recognition that AZEK Pavers has received in the marketplace. With long lasting durability, stain resistance, and easy installation, AZEK Pavers are poised to redefine the hardscape category."
Manufactured with up to 95 percent recycled content from reclaimed tires and some added plastics, AZEK Pavers are stain-, impact- and scratch-resistant and save on installation time and labor compared to traditional concrete and brick pavers. With an innovative grid system and less than half the weight of traditional pavers, AZEK Pavers install up to three times faster than other pavers. They can be cut using a regular miter or jigsaw without the need for masonry wet saws.
AZEK Pavers, available in five appealing colors, are manufactured in three profiles: Standard Landscape, Permeable and Resurfacing Pavers. Standard Landscape pavers are ideal for patios, walkways and driveways (standard sub base and aggregate is required); Permeable Pavers, featuring spacer lugs, are designed for use in areas where water drainage is required to reduce storm water runoff; and Resurface Pavers are a thinner paver that can be installed directly over existing slabs, flat roofs and decks.
This award from Lumbermen's adds to the growing list of AZEK Paver accolades including being named a "Top 100 Product of 2012" by This Old House Magazine and receiving the 2012 Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural Products Magazine.
