VISTA, Calif., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Building Products, Inc., (PINK: ECOB) announced today that the weather has taken its inevitable turn toward the cold and wet making unprotected lumber more vulnerable to moisture related problems. As a result of the changing climate and the awareness of Eco continuing to accelerate, Eco's facilities are busy across the country, with our Fair Lawn, New Jersey facility being the busiest. The Company's plan to target this Sandy Rebuild is working and it has been said that this rebuild is merely getting started. From the tip of Long Island in Water Mill, New York to Atlantic City, New Jersey, Eco is finding more and more Builders, Contractors and Architects that want to be a part of this movement as Eco Certified Defensive Partners http://ecob.net/index.php?p=services&id=124.
Eco Red Shield protected lumber is turning over and selling in retail stores in New York and New Jersey, and is now being supported with contractor's sales by Builders' General Supply Co. of New Jersey, as they have begun to turn up the heat with "whole-house" pack sales. The Company's next milestone is to attract the attention of a National Wholesaler. Once we secure that relationship, we will then have the ideal business model enabling us to strategically move across the country and into new markets. Very few understand what it takes to bring a new product into an existing supply chain with facilities strategically places in support of a national rollout.
Steve Conboy, President & CEO of Eco Building Products, Inc. commented that "The Builders and Architects that have joined Eco in this defensive movement are the leaders in the Industry. Guys like Shelly Kahan at Interstate + Lakeland Lumber saw this product emerge some three years ago. The forward-thinking Team at Builders' General Supply Company represents the Industry's leaders that start these trends. If you look at the retail side of this Advanced Framing Lumber, the biggest and the best recognize that this trend was not going away. The Wholesalers are the last to make their move because they take positions in products that are moving in the industry. At Eco, we target the Builder and Contractor looking to create trends as they help us create the demand, not the supply chain itself. With Builders' General, we met some of their top builders that want to raise the bar along with us and now we step back and let the supply partner take it the rest of the way throughout the Jersey Shore. While this group is excellent at selling lumber, they really shine in their marketing efforts making this opportunity very rewarding for us. In short, they understand this product being the future and they'd rather be a part of this movement than fighting against it."
TJ Shaheen, Vice President of Builders' General Supply Company stated "It's time boys. We've done the marketing, we have the customers ready to pull the trigger, now we have to close and we need to work together as a team. Nobody can do what we can do for the New Jersey Coast. It's time to work and get vertical. Now we have the holidays upon us, but after that – we have a long hill to climb, but as long as it's us and you, there isn't anything we cannot do. We've got radio spots blanketing the airwaves in Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean County, New Jersey and from Staten Island, New York to Long Beach Island, New Jersey. We also have print ads running in the same demographic – DEFEND YOUR HOME, with Eco Red Shield."
