Decking business ready to expand at Wilmington Air Park

A composite decking and building products company is getting ready to cut the ribbon on a new facility at Wilmington Air Park, a plant that will employ 40 people by the spring of 2020.

The company makes composite-material decking, railing and other products.

A new AZEK Building Products recycling plant will get a ribbon-cutting April 23 at Wilmington Air Park, the company said.

The plant is named after the brand that will use the plastic materials produced at the plant, “Timber Tech.”

The facility will be able to recycle more than 55 million pounds of polyethylene plastic this summer.

Last October, CPG International LLC/the AZEK Co./TimberTech was approved for a 1.1 percent, six-year Ohio tax credit, for what the state expects will be the creation of 35 new jobs in Wilmington, at a new annual payroll of $1.3 million.

AZEK is based in Chicago, with manufacturing facilities in Scranton and Aliquippa, Pa. and Eagan, Minn. 

The company already has 475 Wilmington employees, a spokesman said. The air park facility will be a second Wilmington operation for the company, with the established facility at 894 Prairie Ave. 

The business was known as CPG International LLC before it changed its name to AZEK in January 2018.
