Eco Building Products Affiliate Network Production Significantly Increases
Eco Red ShieldTM Protected Lumber Sales Create Ripple Effect Amongst ECOB's
Affiliate Network Representing an Increase in Company Chemical Sales
VISTA, Calif., March 19, 2013
VISTA, Calif., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCQB: ECOB) announced today that ECOB Affiliate Guthrie Lumber and
Distribution, Inc., located in Austin Texas, has received Eco Red Shield^TM
protected lumber coating orders in excess of five-hundred thousand board feet.
This increase in production for the Company's growing Affiliate Network
supports the paradigm shift away from unprotected lumber products,
industry-wide. Moreover, the increase in Affiliate sales represents an
increase in the Company's chemical production to support the demand for this
technically advanced building material nationwide.
"After several years of providing Eco Red Shield protected lumber to custom
homebuilders, we are beginning to see the paradigm shift that Steve Conboy has
been referring to. Investors of these multi-family residential projects are
recognizing the value-added by building with protected lumber; not only with
regard to their investments, but more importantly for the safety of their
tenants. We are seeing the domino effect in action as supported by the
architects, private equity firms and general contractors from each of these
projects contacting us for supplemental information in preparation for their
next projects," says Greg Guthrie, President, Guthrie Lumber and Distribution,
Inc. "Currently, we are one month out on coating orders, and in the process of
rolling out a second shift providing adequate production to meet the increase
in demand. Our plans now are to introduce Eco Red Shield to the assisted
living and student housing sectors of the industry; both of which would
greatly benefit from the value-added protection Eco Red Shield provides,"
Also experiencing a similar increase in sales and production is ECOB
Affiliate, Rocky Mountain BluWood of Denver, Colorado. With the effects of
wildfire in the not too distant past, Eco Red Shield protected lumber
represents a safe, cost-effective alternative to unprotected lumber.
Several recent projects specifying the inclusion of Eco Red Shield protected
lumber have been keeping the coating facility running around the clock. Custom
home rebuilds from the Waldo Canyon fires to a multifamily project going
vertical in front of Coors Field in Denver.Our projects have been supplied by
Direct Lumber and Door of Denver, CO. Direct Lumber has been ordering
truckloads of Eco Red Shield as the new environmentally friendly plate
material, the alternative to traditional pressure treated lumber for sale in
the lumber yard.
"Eco Affiliates are starting to show up all around the country with orders
like this. Creating an Affiliate Network capable of supporting this movement
was a component of our national rollout plan since inception. As a result of
the success our Affiliates our experiencing in their markets, Eco has been
afforded the ability to support the expanding consumer base nationwide,
ultimately empowering Homeowners, Builders and Contractors to embrace
defensive building practices rather than building with raw lumber," says Steve
Conboy, President/CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
