ECOB successfully quoted Eco Red Shield coated lumber at a competitive price versus value proposition without having to perform the framing labor services.
The Company has now successfully booked several contracts in the Los Angeles market creating a nice backlog of orders, representing the paradigm shift towards protected lumber products is under way in the Southwestern region. ECOB did not have to package in labor services with E Build & Truss in order to secure the sale.

"Our recent fire certification by QAI, ESR 3255 certification and GREENGUARD certification comes at a perfect time as our company is moving from an innovative business plan now crossing the chasm into the main supply market. We have never lost sight of our vision, allowing big lumber mills and distribution to get behind this product, so they can sell Eco Red Shield to Builders like TriCal Corporation. Eco Red Shield's accomplishments have turned some heads in the lumber industry with visits and phone calls not only from the big USA mills but now even mills from around the world. The Company is now working diligently in the GSA schedules for Government procurement in Federal, Military and USAID contracts. What differentiates ECOB, we are not a commodity, we are valued added to lumber and the only ones in the world with this combination of protection that is GREENGUARD certified", stated Steve Conboy, President and CEO, Eco Building Products.
