VISTA, Calif., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EcoBlu Products, Inc., (OTCBB: ECOB) announced today that the company has secured an 18 truckload order for Red Shield™ coated lumber in excess of 260,000.00 dollars all inclusive. Leveraging the ECOB affiliate network the non treated lumber was purchased from the local market in Southern Georgia. All of this lumber was successfully coated by EcoPrime, LLC located in Augusta, Georgia providing a short trip to the Savannah sea port for shipment onto Haiti, providing cost effective supply chain management.
Local building materials supplier in Haiti has embraced the use of ECOB Wood Surface Film™ treated wood vs. traditional ACQ pressure treated lumber that only has termite protection. Upon successful delivery the expectation of ongoing orders is expected. Additionally ECOB is working with a local family who has been in the Textile business in Haiti for over 40 years. Together they have completed the renovation of a strategically located wholesale lumber distribution yard. ECO NO-BOIS is the Creole interpretation for Eco "Wood" and the name of the distribution company set up in Haiti to distribute Red Shield™ protected lumber.
"Our company embraced Red Shield lumber products with the expectation of future supply and growth. We never expected the volumes to ramp as fast as they have. My team has done a fantastic job migrating our factory process to the Wood Surface Film™ application," said Bear Shelton, Chief Operating Officer of EcoPrime, LLC. "We are extremely happy with the technical support provided to my factory by the ECOB team," added Shelton.
"I set out to prove that our protected lumber is the right building material of choice for rebuilding Haiti. Having spent the last year shipping our protected lumber shelters and medical buildings into Haiti to support those in need we also demonstrated the potential for our lumber in the region. Our hunt for new markets while the US struggles to recover seems to be paying off," said Steve Conboy, President and CEO of EcoBlu Products. "I am extremely happy to receive our first large order for protected lumber from Haiti. My organization and infrastructure is now in place to handle the future," added Conboy.
