“The primary objective of the new service is to stimulate demand across North America for our decorative panels and lumber products, then channel those opportunities towards our customers base,” says Todd Graham, DesignOneSource North American specification manager.
“Two years ago we determined that the industry was evolving and needed a different type of support than was currently being provided. So we went back to the drawing board and created a new program totally focused on servicing the needs of the A&D client base based on todays conditions.”
