MoistureShield® Composite Decking, part of Oldcastle APG®, has announced plans to increase its capped composite decking production by up to 50% at the company’s centrally located Springdale, Arkansas, plant. The high-performance decking manufacturer expects to add capacity by the second quarter of 2021. The investment will position MoistureShield, which uses 95% recycled content to manufacture low-maintenance decking, to meet growing customer demand for its capped wood composite products.
MoistureShield’s Vision® premium capped composite and Vantage™ non-capped composite are currently produced at the Springdale facility. In late 2019, Springdale began producing MoistureShield Elevate™, an entry-level capped composite decking product. The latest investment will significantly increase production volume for Elevate, as well as a soon-to-be-launched new product line from MoistureShield.
