BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD EXPANDS STRUCTODEK® CAPACITY

Danville, Virginia – BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, INC., the largest North American manufacturer of wood fiber products, now offers

Danville, Virginia – BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, INC., the largest North American manufacturer of wood fiber products, now offers the commercial roofing industry an increased supply of STRUCTODEK, its proprietary roofing recover board. HUEBERT FIBERBOARD, INC., located in Boonville, MO, is now licensed and approved to manufacture under the BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD brand name. STRUCTODEK will be packaged the same and hold all the necessary FM®, UL® and Miami-Dade® approvals to meet the technical needs of today’s roofing industry.

HUEBERT FIBERBOARD is a wholly-owned subsidiary of W. R. MEADOWS®, INC. and a sister company to BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD. Tom Verrill, BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD Technical Services Manager, stated “The technical approvals have been completed, allowing BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD to offer additional supply to the marketplace under the coveted STRUCTODEK brand name. We have received Factory Mutual, UL, and Miami-Dade approvals and the product will be manufactured to the strict requirements of ASTM C-208 and STRUCTODEK product specifications. The end result will be an additional manufacturing facility for BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, thus increasing the available supply of STRUCTODEK roof insulation to the marketplace.”

Mike Taylor, Director of Sales and Marketing, said BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD is committed to offering the industry the best products in a timely manner.

“Service and availability is crucial for our customers. While the overall fiberboard capacity on the surface appears to be plentiful, it is simply not the case because the majority of commercial projects require Factory Mutual RoofNav® assembly approvals as well as UL and Miami-Dade approvals. STRUCTODEK is currently included in more than 120,000 RoofNav® assemblies, the most in the industry,” says Taylor. He also notes that much of the fiberboard currently being sold into the U.S. is imported from Canada and the manufacturers simply do not possess the approvals.

BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD is a wholly-owned subsidiary of W. R. MEADOWS, a family-owned company that last year celebrated 90 years of service to the construction industry.
