OrganoWood signs general agreement with Beijer Byggmaterial.
OrganoClick's subsidiary OrganoWood manufactures and markets eco-friendly fire and rot protected wood and wood treatment products. OrganoWood® is a Swedish innovation and has all of its production in Sweden. Now Beijer Byggmaterial, Sweden's largest wholly owned building supply chain, that provides both building professionals and DIY enthusiasts with building materials, decided to provide OrganoWoods products in its range.
Since 2012, OrganoWood®-modified wood has been manufactured and marketed in Sweden. The modified wood, that is available as both decking and paneling wood, has an effective flame and rot protection and a unique water repellent technology. In 2014 OrganoWood®-modified wood won the gold medal at Nordbygg for "the hottest building material of the year" and the company's wood protection product was the first ever in Sweden to be awarded the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) "Good Environmental Choice" (i.e. Bra Miljöval).
- "To get distribution through Beijer's 70 stores is very important to us. We strive to be in every Swedes nearest building material store and now this agreement will take us another step closer to that goal. Beijer is also an important player in the professional market, where we are investing heavily in Sweden in 2017. " says Jens Hamlin, CEO OrganoWood.
OrganoWood® is an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional pressure treated wood used in e.g. decking. OrganoWood® is recommended by the Swedish Byggvarubedömningen and SundaHus. The area where OrganoWood® is growing the most at the moment is within facade cladding. The non-toxic, readymade cladding, which requires minimal maintenance and with its beautiful silver gray shade, is very popular.
