New distributors in Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania
will increase product availability and service.
Montreal, Quebec (October, 2008) – Uniboard, a North American leader of manufactured engineered wood products, is pleased to announce the addition of two new distributors of Uniboard particleboard and thermally-fused melamine through 3 locations based in Ohio, 1 in Pennsylvania and 1 in Kentucky.
“With the addition of these strategically located distributors in the United States, Uniboard is now even better positioned to satisfy client needs by providing further access to experienced staff, technology, and support,” said James Hogg, President and CEO of Uniboard. “Both Bennett Supply Company and Flagg Inc. are well-established and respected resources in the industry. They complete our ability to service customers on the east coast from New England to Florida as well as throughout the mid-west.”
Since 1962, Bennett Supply has been an industrial wholesale distributor of flooring, lumber and building materials. They are organized into five specialized business units, with two modern warehouse locations serving Western Pennsylvania, Northeast Ohio, and bordering counties of New York, West Virginia, and Maryland. Supplier relationships have existed for decades, and in many cases include some of the best-recognized national brand names in the industry.
Flagg Incorporated was founded over 37 years ago by Ted Flagg, whose vision was to create a specialty distributorship dedicated to serving Cabinet Makers. Located in Fairfield, Ohio, Canal Winchester, Ohio, and Nicholasville, Kentucky, all branches specialize in stock and distribution of panel products from particleboard and fiberboard to Melamine and laid up panels including many specialized substrates. Flagg's partnership with Wilsonart International and Uniboard provides a comprehensive surfacing offering to the commercial and industrial fabrication base. It also enhances the choices available to the specification and design community for products that are innovative and meet environmental requirements.
