RESHAPING BACKYARD LIVINGFDS Distributors began as a fencing contractor in 1989. Projects were carefully handled from start to finish with a focus on creating excellent customer experiences with a high level of craftsmanship. As business grew, so did our facilities. We added a lumber yard and began supplying fencing and decking materials to the public. We developed close ties with Trex Company as a Pro Platinum installer and regional dealer during this time of expansion and growth. As Trex was developing the Trex Seclusions fence, FDS was invited to consult on its design. In 2006, FDS installed the first Trex Fence in Provo, Utah. This same fence was used for the national marketing campaign. Trex then selected our gate design as the standard configuration for Trex Seclusions. We continue to manufacture gates that are sold nationally, including through the largest box store chains.
Further developing a relationship with Trex, FDS has been involved in various marketing projects including building trade show exhibits for the company, building projects highlighted in photo shoots, and contributing content for social media. In July 2011, Trex announced that FDS and one other partner would become the sole national distributors for Trex Fencing. We continue to follow the Trex tradition of excellence as we represent the fencing line of products on their behalf. As a Trex distribution partner, we continue to innovate. In 2015 we introduced the Horizons fence as the first horizontal fence using Trex materials. In 2016, we streamlined the ordering process and created a suite of architectural resources. In 2018, we will begin offering an adjustable DIY gate system and expand our market reach. To compare Trex with our competitors, please read this article.
