Tectum Inc. announces the FSC certification of the Tectum Inc. Manufacturing Facility


Tectum Inc. announces the FSC certification of the Tectum Inc. Manufacturing Facility. The Chain-of-Custody is now complete as previously just the wood in Tectum products was certified.

Environment & LEED Contribution

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a program of the U.S. Green Bulding Council. LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

The LEED* Green Building Certification Program evaluates every aspect of the construction process and building components used in new and existing buildings. Tectum Inc. fully endorses the LEED Green Building Rating System.

MR Credit 7: Certified Wood

Tectum products are made from Wisconsin Aspen wood fibers, harvested in Wisconsin by Johnson Timber Corporation. Johnson Timber Corporation is FSC and SFI certified. 44% of Tectum panels are wood excelsior. Chain-of-Custody #: SW-COC-002249 and is FSC Mix Credit.

Tectum: A Green Product

Long before the environmental practices of business were scrutinized, Tectum Inc. was manufacturing sustainable building products in an environmentally safe, non-toxic process. Since 1949, Tectum panels
have been made from renewable wood sources, magnesium from sea water, and recovered magnesium waste. The panels contain no toxic binders, no asbestos or formaldehyde, and are naturally degradable in a landfill.
