Tropical Forest Products announced today that it is partnering with Four Corners Building Supply, as an official distributor of Tropical’s Black Label™ brand of premium Ipe, Cumaru, Garapa and other tropical hardwoods graded to the highest standards. Headquartered in North Charleston, SC, Four Corners serves the Low Country as a leading distributor of premium building materials.

Applications range from decking, cladding, and ceilings to timber sizes and architectural Millwork and each board must be Premium Architectural Grade or superior to earn the Black Label title.

“The high standards of our Black Label architectural grade lumber meet the quality and service needs of Four Corners’ customers,” said Brian Lotz, Technical Director for Tropical Forest Products. “This is a tremendous opportunity for expansion in South Carolina’s high-demand wood market.”

“I have been buying tropical hardwood decking for over 30 years in the Charleston area,” said Larry Broadway, Four Corners Purchasing Manager. “The quality, consistency and breadth of product offerings are by far the best I have seen in the market. When paired with Tropical Forest Products’ Legal Lumber™ Due Care environmental compliance program, we know that our customers are assured of the best possible hardwood decking outcome and the most ethically sourced hardwood decking, accessories and cladding products on the market at competitive prices.”
