SEATTLE — Smith & Fong Co., a San Francisco-based manufacturer of Plyboo bamboo flooring and plywood, on Jan. 3 announced it has opened a Puget Sound-area warehouse to service an expanding customer base in the Pacific Northwest.

“The Pacific Northwest is a sophisticated region of the country, especially with regard to green building and sustainability,” Smith & Fong Vice President Angus Stocks said. “We already have a significant customer base in the area now, and demand is increasing. We felt the time was right to put down roots in the market.”

Smith & Fong plans to stock its full line of bamboo flooring and plywood at its SeaTac-area warehouse starting in January, supplying Plyboo products for standard distribution throughout the Northwest.
