Eco Building Products, Inc., announced today the Company has set up shop, establishing Eco Red Shield lumber coating services in Fairlawn, New Jersey. Eco will open the doors to this coating operation, equipped with rail service and lumber yard during the month of August 2013.
The timely news of Eco's newest facility arrives on the heels of the fledgling Sandy Rebuild, further fueled by the Governor of New Jersey's administration issuing mold mitigation guidance targeting residential recovery efforts from last year's super storm Sandy.
Also supportive of regional rebuild efforts in the Tri-State area, the Company's Eco Red Shield protected lumber is now on the shelf and available for purchase in select retail stores throughout the New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia metro areas. With an established facility located in the heart of this market, the Company will have the capacity to produce the large volumes of product required by Eco's Big Box customer that is now piloting Eco's defensive line of products. Providing customers with a choice in comparison to raw lumber, Eco Red Shield provides homeowners and contractors with unparalleled mold, fire, termite and wood rot protection; qualities raw lumber simply can't offer.

"I am extremely proud to be working with this Big Box retailer as one of our sales partners throughout this region that are now carrying our defensive products on their shelves and online, just in time for the Sandy rebuild. Doing so offers their loyal customer base a superior product, rather than raw lumber and the same old mold clean-up and waterproofing products. Working in unison, the provision of unlimited access to Eco's products is now a reality for consumers. The Company spent several years developing the infrastructure, operations, code approvals and quality-controls before introducing Eco Red Shield to the main market. We've worked diligently over the past several years defining the 'full-framing package' in the treated lumber category, with expectations of a paradigm shift to occur. The Company is proud to state that the paradigm shift has occurred, and the category is forever forged and gaining momentum in the industry," stated Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc. "The investor community continues to ask Eco why we waited so long to get this great product into the national supply chain. As the Innovator behind the marketing of Eco Red Shield, I knew that early decisions getting to market before the Company was prepared to handle a large customer was going to one day pay off," added Conboy.
As the Company and its affiliates continue to push into the Sandy Rebuild, we are very active with this same Big Box retail chain, preparing stores in other regions prone to wildfires and other seasonal natural disasters. "If someone were to go really deep in plywood inventory down in the South during this really slow housing market, come hurricane season that would be labeled as a brilliant move. The fact that Eco Red Shield appeared in and around the Sandy Rebuild, and now with it on the shelf in a big box; this was no accident. This product line looks likes it was designed for a rebuild," says Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
