Smith & Fong Co., manufacturer of Plyboo bamboo architectural plywood and textured wall systems, has announced it has expanded its presence in the United Kingdom and Europe, with a London office and centralized warehousing in the English Midlands for its full line of bamboo and palm plywood and paneling products, according to company president Angus Stocks.

The company has partnered with IQ Allied American Industries Ltd., London, a leader in promoting and distributing architectural and interior surface products. The key focus for 2016 will be to introduce and build market for Smith & Fong’s Plyboo Reveal, Sound, Linear and palm wall systems collections. The collections currently comprise as many as 40 different designs, stains and finishes.

The new Plyboo Sound line for 2016 is reportedly modern, organic and can meet some of the most stringent sound abatement standards. The Reveal Collection contains carved paneling, some evoking a tribal-meets-modern motif. The Sound Collection offers aesthetics with noise reduction for the hard-surface environment. The Linear Collection is made up of designs ranging from a contemporary feel to the look of hand-woven textiles. All three collections are available in traditional amber and natural and a wide range for stain colors and finish options.

The Palm Collection under the Durapalm brand includes PalmWoven, a traditional woven motif and DecoPalm, a contemporary blocked, linear pattern. For more information or call 415-896-0577.
