SHERWOOD LUMBER/ GEORGIA-PACIFIC OPEN HOUSE: A SIZZLING SUMMER SUCCESS
On Wednesday July 25th, 2012, Sherwood Lumber hosted an open house extravaganza announcing its partnership with Georgia-Pacific in providing Georgia-Pacific’s full line of Engineered Lumber Products (ELP) for the Northeast Lumber and Building Industry.
The event was primarily focused on raising awareness of the availability of the new Engineered Lumber Products in the northeast, as well as the various uses and unique solutions it provides. The open house also featured a meet and greet with the Sherwood Lumber and Georgia-Pacific teams, key Industry presentations by Dennis Bott from Georgia-Pacific and Jason Rastad from Sherwood Lumber, a full day of social events, a BBQ and games. The full-day event was held at Sherwood’s 60-acre Prime Distribution facility in Palmer, MA

Sherwood Lumber & Georgia Pacific Partnership:
The two companies finalized terms in March 2012 with a contract that allows Sherwood Lumber to supply its dealers with a complete line of Georgia-Pacific Engineered Lumber Products. The full line of ELP includes GP LAM, Wood I beam Joists, Fiberstrong Rimboard and GP Glulam Columns & Beams.
When it comes to floor joists, rimboard, beams and headers, engineered lumber is a very popular selection for contractors, architects and homebuyers. The benefits include more open spaces, quieter floors with less vibration, a flat, level, and more stable floor system. These environmentally responsible products also come with a lifetime-limited warranty.
