Edison, NJ – Starborn Industries has expanded distribution of their fasteners in the Northeast with Mid-State Lumber, a wholesale distributor for over 40 years.
“We are excited to have been selected to distribute Starborn Fastening Systems in all of our branches. They are an excellent counterpart to our lines of composite decking and PVC trim. Starborn’s quality fasteners play an essential role in maintaining the stability and longevity of these outdoor products,” said Ken Bernstein, Principal at Mid-State Lumber.
Starborn’s professional grade fasteners combined with their innovative installation tools provide unique solutions for a strong connection and clean, finished appearance in Composite/PVC Decking and PVC Trim. As part of this new partnership, Mid-State Lumber, with locations in NJ, NY, PA and MA, will be stocking and distributing the following fasteners to complement their decking, fascia and trim products:
• Cap-Tor® xd – Specifically designed to fasten Composite and PVC Decking with no predrilling for a clean, color matched finish. Cap-Tor xd screws are available in epoxy coated carbon steel and Headcote® stainless steel. For the perfect setting depth every time, couple the Cap-Tor xd screws with Starborn’s Smart-Bit Depth Setter tool. This unique tool adjusts to set screws to desired depth and features an Auto-StopTM mechanism that sets the screw without stripping.
• DeckFast® Fascia System – Designed to handle the large amount of expansion and contraction that can occur with composite deck fascia boards. The system consists of the Fascia Tool bit for pre-drilling and countersinking and the washer head color matched Fascia Screws. The Fascia Tool bit creates an over-sized hole so that the board can expand and contract freely without applying significant force to the screw.
• Pro Plug® System – Easy-to-install plug fastening system for decking and trim. The system includes screws, plugs and Starborn’s superior and patented PVC/Composite Tool with Auto-StopTM for setting screws to the correct depth without stripping. Plugs are made from actual decking and trim material, so they match perfectly!
• Pro Plug® for Fascia – Plug fastening system for Composite Fascia that utilizes Starborn’s Fascia Plug Tool bit and washer head screw along with plugs made from actual material for a hidden fastener that allows for expansion and contraction of fascia boards.
Larry Crossley, Vice President of Sales at Starborn Industries said, “It is with great enthusiasm that we move forward with our new partnership with Mid-State Lumber. We pride ourselves on delivering innovative, high-quality products with top-tier distribution partners and Mid-State Lumber is a great addition.”
