Vineyard launches two eco-friendly products
Manama, May 13, 2014
The Vineyard Group made a strong eco-friendly statement with the launch of two new products - Coco Craft natural coconut shell tiles and Woodpeckerply plywoods - at the recent gulfBID Exhibition held in Bahrain.
gulfBID - organised by Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre - has been billed as an annual meeting point for specialists in the construction and building materials, services and contracting sectors.
The event thus provided the ideal launch pad for Coco Craft natural coconut shell tiles and Woodpeckerply plywoods, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The launch at gulfBID proved to be a winning move for the Vineyard Group as many of the enquiries registered at the exhibition stand turned into successful sales.
Universal Lighting managing director Raed Al Samahiji was the first customer for one of the two products launched at the event.
Coco Craft tiles are made of square coconut shell chips and produced in countries like Brazil, Indonesia and Thailand.
They are hand cut from natural coconut shells and then assembled into tiles by skilled workers.
Available in around 40 design patterns, they are naturally hard and retain their strength against fungi and insects while remaining lightweight, durable and decorative.
Woodpeckerply is manufactured in Indonesia and is distributed to several countries that include Ethiopia, Maldives, Niger, Qatar, Turkey and more.
These eco-friendly plywoods are of two types - commercial plywood that can be used for interior applications like partition, indoor furniture, false ceiling, etc and film faced shuttering plywood for centring and form works.
"Both products have been manufactured using natural techniques and ingredients, and as a result, assure an ecologically safe alternative for interiors," remarked Vineyard Group business development manager Reshma Mathew.
"They are also cost-effective in the long-term, promote sustainability at the operational level, and have an aesthetic advantage due to their exotic look and ease in design," she stated.
"It was a privilege to launch these eco-friendly products at gulfBID 2014 and be in a position to introduce their benefits to local and regional customers.
"The products clearly address a growing global trend of integrating huge savings with an eye towards protecting the environment," he added.
The Vineyard Group has branches in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, the UK and the Indian Subcontinent. In February, the group had launched Care-Free water conditioners for the Middle East market.
These natural water treatment solutions have proved effective for a wide range of users that includes householders, farmers, gardeners, golf courses, resorts, hotels, spas, commercial outlets as well as industrial concerns.-TradeArabia News Service
