Smith & Fong Plyboo: The Original Bamboo Panel.
Smith & Fong created both the product and the market for bamboo architectural plywood panels more than two decades ago. I’m happy to say today our panel business is stronger than ever, and we continue to stock and supply the market with the highest quality and greatest range of bamboo panels available. With options such as soy-based formaldehyde-free adhesive and FSC-100% bamboo, we are the market leader and look forward to another 25 years of supplying you with bamboo product options that will both excite and perform.
Our best work is ahead of us.
Some of you might have heard about the investigation into allegations of dumping by Chinese hardwood plywood manufacturers. Plyboo bamboo became temporarily caught up in this investigation due to confusion over the definition of “hardwood” plywood. Plyboo bamboo plywood was later determined to be exempt from the scope of this investigation. And later the entire investigation was found to be baseless and was thrown out for lack of compelling evidence.
The storm has now passed and our Plyboo supply remains intact with no additional duties, tariffs or trade restrictions. And stocking levels to supply the market are stronger than ever.
As we kick off this new era of innovation and creativity, Smith & Fong is excited to present new colors, textures and finishes in our Reveal, Sound and Linear Lines Collections. All of these designs are fabricated here in the USA. If you have been wondering where we’re going next in bamboo panels, you owe yourself a visit to Plyboo.com. With our new online design tool you can explore more than 15 different designs. These new collections are about fun and excitement as well as function. I know you will like what you see. Happy holidays to you and your family, as Smith & Fong looks forward to another 25 years of offering you the best in bamboo design.
