AZEK Building Products Joins Forces with Leading Railing Manufacturer



    Announces Date and Time for 2007 Earnings Call


    SCRANTON, PA, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - AZEK Building Products, Inc., a subsidiary
of CPG International Inc., today announced the signing of a definitive
agreement to acquire Composatron Manufacturing ("Composatron") located outside
Toronto, Canada. Composatron is a privately held manufacturer of Premier and
Trademark Railing Systems.
    "As CPG continues in its mission to become the leading supplier of
premium low maintenance building products, we are excited about this
acquisition and the opportunity to build upon the AZEK Building Products
foundation," said Glenn Fischer, Interim Chief Executive Officer of CPG
International Inc.
    "These railings are the finest and fastest growing in the industry," said
Ralph Bruno, President, AZEK Building Products. "They are a perfect complement
to AZEK Deck and reinforce our leadership in the premium, low-maintenance
exterior category."
    The Premier and Trademark branded railing systems are manufactured using
a polyvinyl chloride ("PVC") and wood flour composite and co-extruded PVC
capstock. The products have the subtle texture of painted wood and are ICC
code listed. Upon completion of the transaction, the railings will continue to
be manufactured in the Toronto area.
    AZEK will pay CAD$30.0 million for 100% of the outstanding stock of
Composatron with additional payments if certain financial targets are met in
2008. The purchase price will be funded through the issuance of debt and is
scheduled to close in the first half of 2008 subject to customary conditions.
    "We expect this transaction to improve earnings and cash flow," said
