MAUMEE, OHIO – The introduction of nearly 200 polyurethane products plus a new focus on design-oriented solutions for building industry professionals and homeowners will help Fypon meet marketplace needs in 2015.
"Going into 2015 Fypon will provide more design-oriented products and solutions for builders, remodelers and consumers," says Mark Savan, president of Therma-Tru Corp., which owns Fypon. "We are organizing our polyurethane trim products into five different architectural design styles and launching a multitude of new products that will make it easier for our customers to achieve their desired style and look on both the interior and exterior of a home."
Fypon® trim products, which have been available in the marketplace for more than 45 years, fill both the decorative and functional needs for many projects. With more than 2,500 available SKUs, the company has a wide assortment of products to meet industry needs.
"This company has a long history of successfully adding style to both residential and commercial projects," says Savan. "Moving into 2015 we plan to help advance the use of our products by offering them in style-focused classifications in a new Style Guide to provide design solutions for the end user."
For builders and remodelers, Savan points to the fast-install, dependable nature of polyurethane products as an asset on the jobsite. "These trim products continue to rise in popularity because of their versatility, quality and long-lasting appeal," says Savan. "We believe that, as builders continue to differentiate themselves through the products selected for their home projects, that demand for polyurethane pieces will continue to rise."
Savan also points to the free take-off service provided by Fypon as another asset the company offers to industry professionals. "The skilled team at Fypon will review design plans and recommend suitable Fypon pieces to enhance projects," says Savan. "While architects and designers are already using this free service, we believe custom builders and remodelers will increase their use of this valuable resource in the future."
