Benjamin Obdyke has forged a distribution partnership with specialty construction market supplier Wind-lock to strengthen its growing presence in the stone, stucco, and masonry channels.

“Several of our products have resonated with builders and specialty contractors who work with stone, stucco, and masonry as exterior siding materials on homes,” said Geoff Ehrman, director of business development for Benjamin Obdyke. “In order to make these products more readily available, we searched for the best partner in this endeavor. We're proud to have Wind-lock, with its brand and service capabilities, carry our products on a nationwide basis through its well-established distribution base.”

The supplier will carry Benjamin Obdyke’s Home Slicker Stone & Stucco, and Blockade Mortar Deflection System.

Carter Benjamin, executive vice president of Wind-lock, pointed out that his company's just-in-time inventory program, multiple warehouse locations, and stock-to-dock shipping guarantee have helped make it one of the country's leading specialty construction market suppliers. “'What you need, when you need it' is how we say it,” he said.

Among the products carried by Wind-lock are those for the EIFs (exterior insulation finishing systems), stucco, brick, veneer synthetic stone, ICF (insulating concrete forms), SIPs (structural insulated panels) and stone channels.
