Eco Building Products Expands Production Acquiring Multiple Coating Lines In
ECOB to Increase Production Volumes to Meet Big Box Demand
VISTA, Calif., March 26, 2014
VISTA, Calif., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCQB: ECOB) announced today that the Company has purchased additional
automated coating equipment and the use of a facility currently operational in
Augusta, Georgia. The newly acquired equipment is fully-functional and
complete with automation, enabling the Company to obtain an increased output
rate. In addition to the automated line, ECOB will refurbish an existing
production line under the provisions of the Company's current quality control
program, complete with pre and post-conditioning tunnels producing a higher
quality finished product. Moreover, the increased production capacity will
allow ECOB to reinforce its current market position in the Northeastern U.S.
with respect to panel production to meet increasing big box demands.
"The demand in the northeast started with one house, and today we are
positioned with multiple coating lines and affiliate production facilities to
support that market. More recently, Eco sold a whole-house pack into Omaha,
Nebraska and already the supply chain is calling for Eco Red Shield protected
lumber. In the Pacific Northwest, Eco's Salem facility remains fairly busy
with lumber distributors like Shelter Products and Blazer Industries sending
product in for coating services to support production jobsites in Texas,
Colorado and pre-fab buildings heading off-shore into Hawaii," statedSteve
Conboy, President/CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc. "We are expecting the same
in the south as we are getting calls from distributors already. Once we raise
the Eco Flag in the south, it is certain that the market will come to Eco for
coating services because we are convincing the lumber industry Eco is the best
in the business and here to stay," added Conboy.
Also in support of the Company's endeavors in the development, production and
distribution of eco-friendly protected lumber; the USDA recently published a
press release No. 0041.14 titled, USDA Announces Support for Innovative,
Sustainable Wood Building Materials to Protect Environment and Create Jobs.

"We are getting calls now as if ECOB wrote this press release because it
sounds like it was written about Eco Red Shield and our online institute
designed to train Architects and Engineers, www.IDBP.org, about the need to
protect wood fiber strength, the carbon footprint, people that occupy the
homes and the first responders during fires. We are excited to present our
application to the USDA helping them understand what ECOB has been doing to
raise the bar on wood framed buildings with protected lumber in highly
impacted markets," added Conboy.
