Hardwoods Inc. and International Wood Products (IWP) will jointly handle distribution of Kebony’s dually modified wood cladding and decking products throughout Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. This brings 20 additional distribution centers online, in the region, thereby greatly increasing the availability of Kebony to North America largest market.

“IWP is excited to promote and sell Kebony at all five of our locations servicing the entire West Coast. Kebony adds to our growing portfolio of high-quality products that value innovation and sustainability,” IWP president Josh Hamilton said. “It supports our commitment to working with our customers to provide solutions, grow market share, and increase return on investment.”
