Trex Q&A with Amerhart: Celebrating 80 Years

Beginning as a small insulation products distributor in 1940, Amerhart is now one of the largest independently owned lumber and building materials distributors in the Midwest. With 11 locations across 6 states, and a distribution footprint that reaches even wider, Amerhart has continually expanded its product offerings and service capabilities.


One of the keys to 80 years of success has been fostering strong partnerships with industry innovators like Trex, the inventor of the composite decking category.
