SCS Certifies International Wood Products, Inc.

“Post-consumer recycled” is a term we generally associate with consumer products like paper and plastic, but now a wood flooring has that designation, too, with official, third-party certification. International Wood Products, Inc., of Queen Anne, Maryland has been certified by Scientific Certification Systems for 100 percent post-consumer content in its Antique Oak, Antique Heart Pine, and Antique Chestnut flooring lines. The wood, which is remilled from the beams of 19th century buildings, is reportedly available at major retail chains and independent retailers. Although numerous other companies produce similar products, International Wood claims to be first to be independently certified for recycled content.
