Parksite Broadens Partnership with Maibec
Parksite is expanding their multi-year partnership with Maibec to distribute Eastern White Cedar Shingle and Stave’s Lake Western Red Shingles across their New York and North Carolina territories. Last fall, Parksite added Maibec shingles to their New Jersey and Maryland markets and this latest geographic addition, is part of their strategic expansion throughout all Parksite markets.
As the recognized benchmark for quality in their industry, Maibec shingles will enhance the beauty of any home, emphasize its architectural details, or pair harmoniously with other materials. For centuries, homeowners have preferred the naturally durable properties of Eastern white cedar for their exterior shingles. Maibec shingles are available in a virtually endless variety of solid colors and semi-transparent stains.
“We pride ourselves on being the premier partner to leading manufacturers in the building industry. And we are extremely proud to have been selected to represent the Maibec brand”, stated Bob Higgins, Senior Vice President of Sales for Parksite. “Establishing a partnership with Maibec enables us to build on our portfolio of leading brands and offer our customers the highest quality and most innovative products in the industry.”
Parksite firmly believes their competitive advantage is directly attributable to their employees. According to CEO, Ron Heitzman, “Every one of our Associates is dedicated to contributing to the success of both our customers and our suppliers. Owners produce the best results with integrity and honesty, and by doing that Parksite is successful as well. The dedication and excitement that is generated when everyone is an owner is extraordinary.”

According to Ron Heitzman, CEO, “Our commitment has been, and will always be, to create demonstrable value for our customers, suppliers and shareholders.
