Quebec City, Quebec –Tando Composites today announced it is expanding its partnership with Parksite (Batavia, IL) to distribute the TandoStone® product line within their Maryland and North Carolina distribution markets.  The expansion will include the full line of TandoStone®, the #1 brand of composite stone. TandoStone is designed to replace traditional stone or stone veneer and complements a wide range of other siding materials including fiber cement, vinyl, stucco, and brick to achieve a mixed material exterior. 


“Parksite is the ideal distributor to help bring the advanced composite technology of TandoStone to dealers throughout Maryland and North Carolina. Their team has the experience and understanding of how to bring high quality, branded products to market as they work tirelessly to add value to their customers’ business,” said Michael Morris, Senior VP of Sales for Derby Building Products, parent company of Tando Composites. 

Parksite’s Scott Thomas, Director, LBM Sales, noted the building products wholesaler’s secret to bringing innovative brands to market is its employee-owners – stakeholders who have an above and beyond approach to customer service.

“We have long been leaders in the conversion to easier and more authentic looking substitutes to traditional products that offer economical solutions for our LBM dealers,” said Thomas. “Innovative product lines like TandoStone help our dealers stand out in the marketplace.”

TandoStone® is available in two different styles, Stacked Stone and Creek Ledgestone, with five colors in each style. It features TruGrit™ surface technology to provide the authentic feel of stone that homeowners desire. Siding installers and trade professionals prefer TandoStone thanks to its  fast and easy installation that can be done with regular tools. And the high-tech composite construction of TandoStone® makes it impervious to moisture, allowing installation at ground level, roof line, and in any weather.  Learn more at
