VISTA, Calif., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Building Products, Inc., (PINK: ECOB) announced today that the Building Industry's Spring Run combined with the Sandy Rebuild are both now well underway in the northeastern equating to increased demand for the Company's Eco Red ShieldTM Advanced Framing Lumber. As a result of this rebuild and seasonal uptick, ECOB's Fair Lawn, NJ production facility began a second shift today enabling the Company to keep up with inbound houses packs and build deeper inventories of finished goods supported by the Sherwood Lumber Company partnership.
In the Pacific Northwest, multiple trucks loaded with lumber coating equipment, drying tunnels and chemical are now on the road bound for the Company's newest production facility situated in the Port of Tacoma (WA). After months of focused planning and retooling production operations to support ECOB's new business model of coating service only, the Company is well prepared to get more machines up and running to produce higher volumes of finished goods, and let the lumber companies do what they do best – getting our products to the job site. This new business model allows the Company to completely focus its technical and quality control resources without having to also be a 'buyer of lumber'.
The Company's spring issue of The Shield couldn't come out at a better time, as this release gives you a good snapshot of the movement that is now well under way for Advanced Framing Lumber.

Eco's marketing and Media efforts have remained a key component for creating demand and raising awareness for the product, and now we are seeing the effects of this in this spring run in the NE. The demand is not coming from the supply chain, rather its Eco finding Builders and Architects that want to build with innovative and more resilient products. We believe our story to be a no-brainer when presented alongside Industry facts. It does not take a rocket scientist to understand that lumber stored outside all winter and exposed to the elements will be in excess of 19% moisture content, and to dry it out would take more time than any builder has allocated during construction. The big question is "Why was the building code adopted given the current conditions of today's wet framing lumber in widespread use, and Eco has showed up with the only solution that has real testing and code support?"
In other recent ECOB news, you've heard about Speonk Lumber and how the entire sales force has recently attained Eco Defensive Partner certification status. This Thursday, they met Eco's Founder Steve Conboy in person as he talks to over 75 Architects and a gang of Builders at their annual Spring Building Show in South Hampton.
Steve Conboy, President & Chief Executive Officer of Eco Building Products, Inc. commented that "I've recently been asked why I spoke last week at the United Nations Info Poverty Conference with respect to a forward look at supporting emerging markets. My job is to teach them, and us, how to build in a safer and more sustainable fashion than with sun-dried block or wet lumber. While at the event, I was accompanied by the SVP of Sherwood Lumber, a foreign Ambassador approached me and asked me to come and teach his country how to build with lumber instead of block because they plan to build 30 million homes in the next 5 years. The SVP of Sherwood communicated to me on Monday that I was the best speaker at the event. My job now is to teach, not to be the best speaker. My focus is on raising the bar in the Construction Industry when it comes to protecting wood fiber strength and the people that get to live in our wood framed buildings."
