2010-03-12 - KWP, a world class manufacturer of Naturetech™ Engineered Wood Siding and Trim Board, is pleased to announce a 12 million dollar capital investment in a new, state-of-the-art facility to support the growth of its innovative and ecological product line.

The expansion is in response to a growing global demand for the Naturetech™ product line which features all the beauty and authenticity of wood siding, has long lasting performance over regular wood and is 100% ecological.

KWP’s Naturetech™ new facility is in excess of 100,000 sq feet and is situated in Terrebone, Quebec. The scheduled completion date is April 2010; this expansion will respond to a significant increase in required capacity to meet the significant demand for the product line.

“We are pleased to announce this very important strategic move for KWP. The expansion is not just instrumental in meeting the growth in demand for Naturetech™, it is an investment that underscores a total ommitment toward continuous improvement to our production processes as well as product innovation.” says KWP President, Lionel Dubrofsky.

KWP manufacturing facilities being located in Canada offers a major advantage in obtaining Leed points for building projects. Local supply is key for a successful business and it is also good for the environment. These are some of the key attributes as to why Naturetech is the only siding that qualifies for Leed points and in fact can obtain up to 4 Leed points.

The expansion, together with long term commitments signed and secured from suppliers for raw materials, will permit KWP to ensure a consistent and long term supply. The expansion also comes at a crucial time where many players are either downsizing or minimizing their investment for the future.

“This expansion is in response to more than an overwhelming demand for our product in a difficult environment. It demonstrates our real commitment to the Naturetech product line and the long term growth of the industry.”

KWP is the supplier of Naturetech™, engineered wood products with all the beauty, authenticity and warmth of wood but engineered for exceptional strength and durability. KWP Naturetech™ sidings and trim board are available in a great variety of profiles and come in an extensive array of colors.
