Silvaris Corporation has announced an agreement with Louisiana-Pacific Corporation(LP) to sell all of LP's North American Offgrade OSB. Silvaris will utilize its downfall OSB website OSBMarket to sell virtually all of this material.
LP was impressed with Silvaris' ability to utilize technology to increase efficiency in this fragmented market. OSBMarket.com has proven that Offgrade OSB can be moved effectively through online transactions. Ultimately, LP realized that taking advantage of Silvaris' expertise would provide greater returns for this sector of their business.
Silvaris launched OSBMarket in the fall of 2007. Since its inception, sales transacted on the site have steadily increased, eclipsing the company's expectations. Customers log in and view Offgrade OSB available in their region, then purchase delivered truckloads at the prices shown on the site. OSBMarket also provides customers with accurate instant pricing and historical pricing information. LP's current Offgrade customers are now being encouraged to visit the site or call Silvaris to inquire about buying their products.
