ACRE by Modern Mill is one of the biggest product breakthroughs in years. It’s a beautiful new wood-alternative that combines green manufacturing with long-lasting durability. Made in the USA without using a single tree, ACRE contains no phenol, formaldehyde or adhesives. It’s strong and light and requires no specialized tools to cut, nail or drill. ACRE resists water, weather and pests and is guaranteed not to rot, crack or splinter.

“We’re so excited to expand our nationwide availability of ACRE,” says David Murdock, president of Modern Mill, “Especially during a time of lumber shortages and increased interest in green, high-performing materials. ACRE is a durable, sustainable and beautiful alternative to rich woods like ipe, teak and cedar, capable of exquisite craftsmanship. ACRE is readily available and its properties make it accessible to a large market making it an important bridge to healthy design.”

According to Steve Rhone, President and CEO of Weston Forest, “ACRE products are a logical addition to our business. We see great potential for them across several of our business units, from the obvious decking applications to industrial uses.” He goes on to say, “This groundbreaking new building material from Modern Mill will give our customers even more solutions for their business. We are looking forward to our new partnership with Modern Mill.”
