A Brief History of Blairstown Distributors
In 1980 Bob Kren decided to build his own log home, which included felling his own trees and hand scribing the logs to fit. Bob knew that his home would need a high-quality wood preservative product. This led him on a two-year worldwide search culminating in his discovery of WOODguard, which was then manufactured by Chapman Chemical Company in Memphis, Tennessee. Bob was so impressed with this product that in 1983, he started selling it, and Blairstown Distributors, Inc. was created.
WOODguard proved to be a complete and user-friendly wood preservative that could be tinted with semi-transparent colors; and being a preservative, it controlled decay, fungi, mold, termites, and powder post beetles. The log home market, however, was demanding lighter and more natural colors, so over the next few years Blairstown Distributors carried out hundreds of tests on color application, packaging, and marketing of this product. One of the most important discoveries made was that through careful use of additional resins, surfactants, and universal colorants, we were able to invent a procedure whereby we were able to high-speed blend and package colorant in one-quart cans.
Because of the quality and reliability of WOODguard, Blairstown Distributors has become the largest distributor of WOODguard in the world over the last twenty years. This enables us to buy in larger quantities and allows us to pass the savings on to you.
