Industry & Transport Sustainability

The Industry and Transport division provides lightweight composites for the transportation, marine, & furniture sectors as well as the general construction market. Using lightweight materials reduces carbon dioxide emissions due to efficient fuel consumption. During the production process of many of our products, we capture and regrind scrap material for production reentry to decrease landfill waste and reduce the input of virgin grade raw materials. For several of our wood-based products, we endeavor to practice sustainable sourcing of raw materials and offer Forest Stewardship Council® Certified materials upon request (FSC®- C074317), as well as GREENGUARD Gold Certified products.
