Eco Building Products Open The Door For Business In Australia
ECOB Sales Agency & Affiliate 'Eco Red Building Products Australia PTY LTD' to
Begin Creating Primary Demand and Awareness for ECOB's Line of Defensive
Products and Technology
VISTA, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013
VISTA, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCQB: ECOB) announced today that the Company will see its products
potentially on the shelf of DIY retail stores across Australia before the end
of the year as made possible by ECOB's Australian affiliate and sales agency,
Eco Red Building Products Australia PTY LTD. The Australian summer is soon
approaching, and many Australians are anticipating yet another scorching
season threatening both their property and livelihood. Brushfires in Australia
are frequently occurring events during the hotter months of the year due to
Australia's natural hot and dry climate. As a result, every year large areas
of land are ravaged by brushfires, resulting in extensive property damage and
loss of life. It is for this purpose and other channel opportunities that we
have made the move to conduct business in this strategic region of the world.
On the 7th of February 2009, the Black Saturday brushfires scarred the nation
with a series of catastrophic fires that ignited across the Australian state
of Victoria during extreme weather conditions. Consuming 450,000 hectare's
enduring one month plus; these seasonal fires destroyed several regional
towns, 2,200 private residences, and were combated by over 5,000 firefighting
personnel. "Australia has had its share of devastating events caused by fires,
and we are very excited about introducing Eco Red Shield^TM protected lumber
products to this market. We are certain that these products have the potential
to protect many properties and lives, and are confident that the authorities
also recognize the need," stated Shawn Simmons, Operations Manager, Eco Red
Building Products Australia.
"We see a huge demand in Australia for ECOB's range of defensive products.
Through ECOB, we see that we can educate the community that there are
cost-effective solutions now available, capable of preventing and managing
these seasonal disasters and the associated costly damage in their own back
yard," says Damian Bartholomeusz, Manager of Finance & Regulations, Eco Red
Building Products Australia.
While floods, fires and storms get a lot of media attention annually, there is
actually a far worse natural disaster that affects Australia on a daily basis
– termites. Each year, termites cost this country more than all of the floods,
fires and storms combined, with damages estimated at $100 million. "Finally,
we can offer our clients an all-in-one solution to protect their lumber and
complete framing packages against termites, mold, wood-rot, and fire. There is
no other product available in the market today which is environmentally
friendly and provides this level of protection for lumber," says Shane
Simmons, Manager of Marketing and Client Acquisition, Eco Red Building
"At ECOB, we were very interested in teaming up with Shawn and his Team
because the country of Australia shares the same issues we face here in North
America. ECOB's advance framing lumber and defensive product line should have
a great impact in Australia. Our goal is to first create demand for our
product line as we simultaneously develop the plan for where we will set up
the first coating facility. And to add further support to our decision, the
fact that a large quantity of the lumber grown in the Pacific Northwest leaves
for Australia, I knew this group was the right fit for Eco," stated Steve
Conboy, President/CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
