Abodo Launches United States Distribution
After years of preparation, Abodo has launched US distribution in partnership with respected architectural timber company reSAWN TIMBER co.
Formally launched on 01 June, the new partnership will service the entire US market, with supply from reSAWN's own finishing facility combined with direct shipments from New Zealand.
After successfully completing Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) fire testing, Abodo's Vulcan Cladding can be used in bush fire zones in the California region - an important achievement.
"We are excited to bring Abodo's architectural timber offering to the US, offering Americans the option to choose rapidly renewable, ultra sustainable certified timbers. The US has historically relied on tropical timbers from contentious areas like Brazil for these applications - our mission is to offer the market a truly sustainable alternative."
"In our partner, reSAWN TIMBER co. we have found a highly skilled, like minded company ready to spread the message" states Daniel Gudsell, Abodo Founder and Director.
Additional ASTM testing has been performed on Abodo's glue laminated product, to further prove compliance with US requirements.
