Owens Corning To Acquire WearDeck

Owens Corning plans to acquire WearDeck from JR Plastics Corporation. WearDeck is a North American producer of composite weather-resistant decking for commercial and residential applications. Using proprietary technology and processes, its products are manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) leveraging Owens Corning’s glass fibre technology, delivering a high-performing and strong product. “The acquisition of WearDeck is a positive step in advancing our strategy to drive continued growth in Owens Corning and pivoting our composites business to focus on high-value material solutions within the building and construction space,” says Marcio Sandri, composites president.
