LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corn Board Manufacturing, Inc. is proud to announce a strategic alliance with Huntington Industries to produce its ZeaHome™ line of upholstered furniture. Through this partnership, Huntington Industries, a leader in environmentally responsible furniture manufacturing processes, will become the exclusive user of CornBoard™ in the manufacture of upholstered furniture. Made from corn stover, a by-product of harvested U.S. corn, CornBoard™ is a renewable wood replacement with many of the same properties of processed plywood.
The ZeaHome™ collection of upholstered furniture will be manufactured using CornBoard™ along with other components which preserve the earth’s resources including: bio-soybean based foam, padding made of fiber from recycled plastic bottles, springs which incorporate recycled steel and fabric whose dyes are produced from non-petrochemicals. ZeaHome™ will be offered by Corn Board Manufacturing, Inc. and will expand to include outdoor furniture made from 100 percent CornBoard™.
“Adding CornBoard™ to our list of renewable, environmentally responsible manufacturing components is a big step toward advancing our mission of providing well-made, comfortable furniture while preserving the earth’s resources,” states Hayden Hiatt, VP of Business Development at Huntington Industries. “We are very excited to have found a likeminded partner in Lane Segerstrom at Corn Board Manufacturing, Inc.”
Huntington Industries will also make CornBoard™ pallets the preferred shipping pallet for all of its suppliers and customers. The use of CornBoard™ pallets for shipping is yet another major step to reduce the dependence on less renewable materials in the supply chain.
“We are very excited to be working with Huntington Industries, pioneers in the home furnishing market, with their mission of preserving the earth’s resources while producing quality furniture,” says Lane Segerstrom, founder and CEO of Corn Board Manufacturing, Inc.
