Press Release: Canadian Construction Materials Center Assesses VERSATEX Building Products, Validates Code Compliance Credentials

ALIQUIPPA, Pa., June 22 — VERSATEX Building Products announced today that the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) now lists VERSATEX premium PVC trimboard products in its Registry of Product Assessments.

According to VERSATEX sales VP Rick Kapres, “For Canadian builders, architects and code officials, CCMC evaluation is an extra measure of assurance that VERSATEX trimboards will comply with building codes almost anywhere in Canada.”

Supported by the Canadian government, the CCMC assesses materials for compliance with building, energy, and safety codes. Mr. Kapres compared it to the familiar Code Compliance Research Reports (CCRR), on which the U.S. building industry relies for materials code compliance assessments.

He said the VERSATEX material that was assessed by CCMC is identical to CCRR-listed products already sold in the U.S. and Canada. “Right now our packaging team is working hard to add the CCMC seal to our products as they come off the line. But, even without the CCMC mark, you can be sure VERSATEX products sold anywhere in the world share exactly the same superior qualities — durability, workability, and finish — that VERSATEX users have relied on for more than a decade.”
