Eastman Discontinues Perennial Wood™ BusinessJanuary 31st, 2014 by DWM Magazine
Eastman Chemical Co. has decided to discontinue the Perennial Wood™ product line and business operations.
“A lot of talented Eastman employees and external partners worked very hard on this project, and this outcome is not a reflection of their dedication or hard work,” says Tim Dell, vice president of innovation, marketing, sales and pricing at Eastman. “Additionally, this decision was not made based on product performance, but rather on the challenging economics of the product market.”
Perennial Wood products will remain available in the market while supplies last. To learn where products can be purchased, visit PerennialWood.com. Eastman says it will honor the 25-year limited residential warranty for product sold at retail under the Perennial Wood brand name. Warranties must be registered within 30 days of purchase at PerennialWood.com or through the customer center at 800-530-7495.
According to the company, the building and construction market remains a priority and the decision does not impact other Eastman products.
