Quebec City, Quebec — Derby Building Products Inc., the manufacturer of the Tando brand and Novik brand of shake and stone, announced that Toby Bostwick is the new director of product development. Bostwick will oversee product development for NovikShake and NovikStone, as well as TandoShake and TandoStone product lines, which debuted in January 2017.

Bostwick is a product development executive and has been working professionally in construction and building products for 15 years. He specializes in new product innovation and market development. Bostwick served as director of new business development for AZEK Building Products and was director of product management at TimberTech before it was acquired by AZEK.

“We are thrilled to have Toby on board—he’s proven leader, who has been very influential in developing and creating market acceptance for alternatives to traditional materials,” said Ralph Bruno, president of Derby Building Products. “He was instrumental in helping develop markets for AZEK capped polymer and TimberTech capped composite deck products with ground-breaking natural looks and performance,” said Bruno. “We foresee a similar category shift with Novik and Tando shake and stone products and Toby’s leadership will accelerate our growth and acceptance in the market.”
