Florida - back in the Blazeguard Market

This week we received an order for a car load of Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing for the Florida multifamily residential roof deck market! In a recent trip, our President, Mike Huddy traveled to the area and visited both distributors and active multifamily job sites. While the region is still impacted by the dwindling existing inventory of empty units, Florida is starting to see some activity. Some builders are recovering faster than others...those in the right area and in the right price range. Other higher-end builders are still being impacted by the slow market. Blazeguard was on job-sites and installed in several projects. In addition, builders are starting to lay the ground work for new projects.

With the slow increase in activity, the inventory of Blazeguard in the territory is also on the decline. As projects continue over the next quarter of 2007 and into 2008, we anticipate shipments will slowly start to pick up.
