San Diego, CA – April 6, 2017 – Eco Building Products, Inc., (PINK: ECOB) announced today that the Company’s subsidiary, Wood Protection Technologies, Inc. has commenced shipments to fulfill its first order as part of an exclusive licensing and national distribution agreement with one of the Industry’s largest wood fencing manufacturers. D-Fence™ is an environmentally friendly wood fencing protectant comprised of WPT’s patent pending, Wood Surface Film Concentrate™ chemistry that protects wood from mold, termites and fungal decay.
“Shipping this first order is a break-out milestone for us. It serves as proof of concept for the new business model that we embarked upon last year. The scope in terms of geographical distribution and the scale in terms of volume is a tremendous opportunity for our people and for Eco’s shareholders,” remarked President and CEO, Tom Comery.
With the agreement, the Company expects to reach widespread geographical distribution and penetration across all of the various wood fencing channels including home centers and pro distribution yards. Fencing protected by D-Fence™, will become available from inventory at various “big box” home centers by June and widely available in many U.S. markets by year end.
WPT is committed to protecting the wood in, on and around your home. The Company’s chemistry serves multiple end use wood markets and fencing alone is roughly a $1.5 billion segment.
