Modern Mill

Modern Mill, the manufacturer of wood substitute ACRE, has partnered with Coastal Forest Products. The partnership expands the distribution of Modern Mill products in New England, eastern New York, Long Island, and northern New Jersey.

“We’re pleased to partner with Modern Mill to offer their high-performance ACRE siding and trim products to our distribution network,” Kevin Brennan, vice president of sales and marketing at Coastal Forest Products, said in a prepared statement. “Our customers expect only the best from Coastal and we see great potential for this exciting new product line, especially when combined with our in-house finishing capabilities. We look forward to a long-term and successful relationship with Modern Mill.”

Coastal Forest Products will carry ACRE siding and trim products from its locations. ACRE is made from upcycled rice hulls and Modern Mill said the product is virtually indistinguishable from wood.

“We’re excited to partner with Coastal Forest Products,” Kim Guimond, chief marketing officer at Modern Mill, said. “We’re committed to creating products that are sustainable, durable, and beautiful, and partnerships with distributors like Coastal Forest Products will help us achieve our goal of making ACRE the go-to wood alternative for builders and homeowners everywhere.”

ACRE is available as trim boards, sheet goods, porch boards, decking, and siding. Modern Mill is based in Fernwood, Miss. Bow, N.H.-based Coastal Forest Products is a wholesale distributor of specialty building products servicing its dealer network of lumber yards throughout New England, eastern New York, Long Island, northern New Jersey, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
