ATCO Wood Products Sign

We're very excited to unveil the ATCO Wood Products sign in front of our mill in Fruitvale. As a manufacturer of high-quality softwood veneer, we're proud to say that our sign is constructed completely from renewable softwood veneer based products. The letters are manufactured from marine grade plywood. The large panels are made from a MPP (Mass Plywood Panel) - a new and revolutionary type of veneer based building product from Freres Lumber (one of our customers located in Oregon). Special thanks to Warren Clark for his design of the sign, Left of Center Design for their engineering and project management, NINCO Construction for their construction expertise, Maglio Building Supply for their help on selecting stain products, Sheep Creek Crane for lifting our sign in place, MIDAS Lab for use of their CNC to cut our letters, Freres Lumber for their supply of the MPP components, SUTCO for help moving our MPP components from Oregon to Fruitvale, and to all the employees at ATCO who not only provided input to the design, but who showcase the hard work and dedication to our Company and our Industry that our sign represents. Be sure to check out our new sign the next time you are driving through Fruitvale (you can't miss it!)
