Trebor USA Corp. (Trebor) offers clients across South Florida and the Caribbean a reliable source for a wide variety of door and window products. Trebor combines an inventory of products from leading manufacturers with an experienced and able staff to ensure every order meets the state’s stringent building codes and fire safety requirements. Trebor goes beyond simply stocking products, as the team of experienced professionals provides clients with a single source for fabrication, installation, design and support throughout the lifecycle of each project.

G. Proulx LLC (Proulx), a Florida-based building materials distributor, founded Trebor when it spun off the company’s door division into a separate company in 1999. Trebor now operates as a standalone supplier and exporter of doors and windows from its headquarters, fabrication shop and warehouse in Hollywood, Fla. The company serves a base of contractors, architects, engineers and outside wholesalers in the industry, each of which look to Trebor for products related to Division 8 and Division 10 specialties.

In total, Trebor’s inventory includes wood doors, hollow metal doors, windows, fenestration frames, louvers lighting, bath accessories, architectural millwork and architectural hardware. Trebor represents only products from reliable, recognized leading manufacturers in every respective category, ensuring to meet each client’s project design requirements.

Expanding the Empire

Trebor builds off of its parent company’s example by employing only the most experienced personnel in the industry, giving customers an extra dose of confidence that products will perform as promised. Trebor goes one step further by providing installation and fabrication services in addition to serving as supplier and distributor to customers in South Florida and the Caribbean. Extending supply to overseas customers seemed a natural avenue for growth; Proulx had already spun off its own export building material supply operations into a separate division, Wholesale Building Products, which is also based in Hollywood, Fla.

Support is the name of the game at Trebor. Customers are able to work with the Trebor team to ensure every product meets a design’s exacting specifications. This is especially important in places like South Florida and the Caribbean, where local building codes set stringent parameters out of concern for fire safety and hurricane preparedness. In turn, Trebor utilizes the latest technologies and software programs to produce accurate estimates and detailed project management documentation.

The company invested in contractERP, a software program that provides Trebor the ability to stay on top of an order from the moment it is placed for quote with the sales team on the front-end to the moment it is shipped to the customer, helping the client plan ahead and work around any possible delays. The software also enables Trebor to operate more efficiently as employees at any stage of the order process can monitor and order.

Total Transparency

When used in conjunction with the company’s Avaware estimation software, Trebor’s experienced professionals provide clients with an accurately detailed project plan and a greater degree of transparency. Just a few clicks and Trebor can easily share the plans with clients for quick and painless product submittals, allowing for expedient revisions if necessary. As an added bonus, the software interfaces with the company’s own billing records.

Taking another page from its sister company, Trebor employs many professionals with previous industry experience. This gives Trebor the advantage of having multiple professional perspectives to weigh against one another to the benefit of the client. As a result, the company understands that it needs to move in synch with the construction industry, anticipating product trends and adjusting its fully licensed installation department to match.

Access control products represent one of the most recent additions to Trebor’s product lineup. The company now offers a variety of systems, including smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, proximity cards, electronic locking systems and ancillary components like mechanical locks, closers and specialized exit devices. Whatever the needs of a project, Trebor’s knowledgeable sales staff will be able to coordinate with fabrication and installation teams to assemble the most effective system for the client, the project and their security needs.

In the next few years, Trebor will continue focusing on its clients in south Florida and abroad and upholding the highest standards for customer service. Anticipating tomorrow’s trends and leveraging the expertise of a diverse professional team, Trebor USA Corp. is solidified as a leading supplier of doors, windows and related products.
