RIVERSIDE, CA -- Answering demand for premium profile products that are backed by the assurances that come from being manufactured in the region, Universal Forest Products affiliates have launched UFP-Edge: superior pattern, fascia and trim products made and sold exclusively in the Western United States.
Starting with premium brite lumber--free of wane and with only the smallest knots that highlight the natural beauty of the wood--UFP-Edge offers the finest pattern, fascia and trim products on the market today. The companies use state-of-the-art technology and processes to manufacture the products, as well as knives they grind themselves--and often--to assure the finest cuts free of whiskers and other blemishes.
UFP-Edge products are manufactured locally, so they don't sit in a yard where they can be exposed to the elements, nor do they go from distribution center to warehouse, where they can be damaged by wear and tear. The products are kiln-dried to minimize swelling, warping and shrinkage. Universal also offers fire-retardant treatment as well as custom profiles for interior and exterior applications.
UFP-Edge products currently are available in California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, West Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, Hawaii and Alaska, and are manufactured at UFP operations that serve those regions.
"From the lumber we carefully select to the knives we grind with precision to the manufacturing and logistics processes we control, we are proud to be the purveyors of the best products on the market, period," said Joe McGuire, vice president of Universal Forest Products' Far West Region, one of the regions in which UFP-Edge products are made and sold. "We are able to leverage our knowledge of our local markets, our relationships with our mills, and our more than six decades of manufacturing experience to bring to market products that we label as premium with confidence and that we offer to our customers with great pride."
