Brazil and All U.S. Locations are FSC® Certified!

We have some very exciting news to share with you! We’ve just obtained FSC® certification for our Brazilian mill, and our remaining U.S. locations in Sarasota, FL, Buffalo, NY, and Los Angeles, CA. These locations join Grover, NC, which has been FSC® certified for many years.

For over two decades, we’ve been committed to bringing our customers sustainably harvested decking from responsibly managed forests. Having all five of our locations FSC® certified only strengthens this promise. Although we’ve been heavily involved in the decking supply chain, it was imperative for us to open our Brazilian mill so that we’d have complete and total control over every aspect of the process. We can ensure that all harvesting is done sustainably while maintaining a consistently high level of quality.

Thanks to all our efforts, we can provide our customers with FSC® material at a lower cost since there’s no middle man and no broker. All FSC® certified decking will come directly from our Brazil mill to one of our U.S. locations, and finally to your home or jobsite.
