QUEBEC CITY, QC – Derby Building Products, manufacturer of the Tando brand of exterior cladding products, has signed a distribution agreement with Forest Products Supply (FP Supply) locations in Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, Ind. FP Supply will be carrying the full line of TandoShake and TandoStone product lines.
“We are thrilled to have FP Supply join us in making Tando products widely available to the Midwest market,” said Ralph Bruno, president, Derby Building Products. “Their experience with an extensive and diverse line of building products makes them a perfect partner for Tando as together we define new categories in shake and stone with a winning line-up.”
Dave Worthington, general manager of FP Supply Indianapolis and Columbus said, “We’re excited to add Tando products to our list of options reaching from the gable to the bottom accents of a home. Tando products are being embraced by the industry because they’re not extruded, they provide a stiffer, better panel with natural looks that won’t fade.”
The product line offers additional benefits to customers in the Midwest, said Worthington, noting, “Both the shake and stone stand up to moisture,” he said. “The TandoStone also takes cold weather out of the equation because it doesn’t have the special temperature requirements of real stone—and addresses the mason shortage we’re experiencing since contractors can easily do the installation.”
