Southern Cross Building Products and Hong Kong's Trublack Holding Limited have come together to offer their unique products into each other's global distribution networks. Southern Cross wll begin using the Trublack brand in the U.S. immediately.

The new Trublack has a  global network in seven countries with offices in Chile, Argentina, Peru, U.S., and Hong Kong. According to the companies, customers will soon have access to more products and increased service across the combined companies' larger worldwide network. With an expanded global network and strong financial foundation, Trublack will deliver significant benefits to consumers, employees, communities and stakeholders.

"This new venture is really exciting for us. We see this as an important step to expand our product lines in markets where we do not currently reach the consumer. Export markets are very important to us," said Rodrigo Vera, CEO of Southern Cross. "We are taking the best products and programs of our combined companies and forming one brand that will better serve all our customers and stakeholders not just in the United States but now throughout the world."
