"Our successful debut at Cobb Hill will increase consumer awareness of our new Aqua(TM) line of eco-friendly forest products, and will leverage our strategic alliance with Oregon Canadian," said Gary Ackles, Chief Executive Officer of Aquatic Cellulose. "Aqua(TM) Clear Choice Decking(TM) is our preservative-free solution to chemically-treated decking."
William Stephaniuk, AQCI's new Chief Operating Officer, added, "The building industry is looking for suitable market alternatives to CCA-treated lumber products. Aqua(TM) Clear Choice Decking(TM) is not only 100% preservative-free, but also durable, naturally beautiful and eco-friendly. We're positioning our Aqua(TM) line of lumber products to take advantage of growing environmental trends."
Mark Albee of Albee O'Hara, a contractor for the Cobb Hill project, said, "Having recently received our order of Aqua(TM) Clear Choice Decking(TM), we're extremely pleased by the quality and craftsmanship of this product. Later this spring, we'll proudly install and showcase the decking at the common house facility."
