Eco Building Products Connects With First Customer In The South And Another
Residential Builder In The Northeast
Eco Red Shield™ Buildings in Breezy Point, New York and the New Jersey Shore
will be Popping Early April
VISTA, Calif., March 27, 2014
VISTA, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCQB: ECOB) is excited to announce that today, the Company has shipped its
first order in the South to Cobblestone Mill Woodworks, Inc. located in Ball
Ground, Georgia. Cobblestone previously utilized wood treatment services from
a Canadian supplier lacking sufficient quality control measures and technical
support, resulting in a newly formed business relationship with ECOB.
Additionally, the Company has cultivated a builder relationship in the
Northeast by way of John Simmons and AGM for the use of Eco Red Shield
protected lumber for an entire house package headed into Breezy Point, New
York that starts framing on April 7, 2014. This Breezy Point builder received
building plans specified with Eco Red Shield protected lumber which led to a
complete special order purchase from The Home Depot and a follow-on call with
ECOB CEO Steve Conboy, in which the builder stated, "He will never again build
with raw lumber". AGM Principal, John Simmons, is preparing to release a
second whole-house package to ECOB with another four more residential projects
in the queue all of which will utilize ECOB's advanced framing lumber. Our
team effort between the Company and like-minded builders represents the
adoption of this technology via the display of defensive building practices in
heavily saturated rebuilding regions including Breezy Point and the New Jersey
Shore, where builders and contractors are looking to build with more than just
raw, unprotected lumber.
"As mentioned in recent news, the demand in the Northeast started with one
house. Now in early April, there will be red buildings popping in NY and NJ,
supported by trucks full of red lumber hitting the road this week setting on
the shelf inventory in big box locations all across the region. Americans are
rallying coast to coast, including government and fire officials, while the
lumber industry continues to resist change. If we are going to lead the world
in residential construction, we need like-minded contractors to stand up in
the face of adversity, and make the change to the newest and best American
brand of lumber, Eco Red Shield protected lumber," stated Steve Conboy,
President/CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
Also of relevance, the Company received communication today from a
representative with the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety &
Health Administration with a link to Tuesday's under-construction apartment
complex fire in Houston stating that he and his team are now promoting Eco Red
Shield protected lumber products. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg9PWSHL4Vg
this massive fire has been reported to have started during welding work on the
roof of the building. A recent testimonial from a safety manager on a
multi-family jobsite supports Eco's position in the Industry and the use of
Eco Red Shield protected lumber products on all jobsites.
I wanted to tell you I witnessed firsthand the effectiveness of the Eco Red
Shield fire retardant qualities. As a safety manager for a general contractor,
fire prevention on wood frame projects is a major concern. We had a situation
where we had to weld a 1-1/4" inch all thread to an I-beam which had been
sheeted over with OSB sheeting treated with Eco Red Shield. After a 2-½" hole
was drilled in the OSB and hot work procedures were implemented, the welding
began. During the arc welding process I noticed very little smoke coming from
the OSB. When the welding was completed, the smoke subsided almost instantly.
The interior of the OSB board glowed red for a second or two and stopped
smoldering shortly thereafter. What an amazing product. I would recommend Eco
Red Shield treated materials to anyone involved with a wood frame project.
"Needless to say, these are exciting times for all of us at Eco. We have
assembled a hard working team that has created the opportunity for the
upcoming spring run showcase of our products in the Sandy rebuild. We have
stayed true to our plan despite being attacked by others in the wood treatment
space who are obviously threatened by our success. Our stockholders tell us
what the internet message board naysayers are saying about us. At Eco we pay
no attention to naysayers we keep our heads down and work hard because we are
brick and mortar people that believe our hard work is revolutionizing the
lumber industry. One day the naysayers will realize that big box would not be
rolling out Eco Red Shield creating shelf space in every store in NY and NJ
during their busy spring run season if they did not perform proper due
diligence. At Eco we all believe our lumber could be the future and the best
lumber the building industry has ever seen," added Conboy.
