ARCHBOLD, OH –  WoodTrac by Sauder received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for its WoodTrac Ceiling Systems, allowing architects who specify it to earn LEED points from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Since FSC Chain of Custody certification verifies that all stages of the production, distribution, and sales of the wood product has been tracked from the certified forest to the finished component, builders, designers and architects can add green qualities to projects incorporating it.

In the summer WoodTrac was also awarded Eco-Certified Composite (EEC) Certification by the Composite Panel Association.

“At WoodTrac, we are committed to sustainable solutions in every aspect of our operations,” says Dan Sauder, executive VP engineering and new markets. “WoodTrac now offers a ceiling product that meets environmental certification requirements.”

WoodTrac by Sauder has been marketed aggressively through regional sales territories. A brand extension was launched in October 2012, WoodTrac Closets, sold through a dealer network.

Based in Archbold, OH, WoodTrac is a separate division of Sauder Woodworking Co., generally credited with the invention of ready-to-assemble furniture in 1953.
