About Conforce International

Management of the Company has been in the shipping container and highway trailer business for over 25 years. The Company has developed an innovative composite flooring system, EKO-FLOR, engineered to replace the outmoded hardwood flooring currently employed by the transportation industry. The Company is targeting its initial sales efforts on the container and trailer industries which have been aggressively seeking a viable replacement for apitong tropical hardwood and laminated oak flooring, respectively. EKO-FLOR is significantly lighter, stronger and more durable than wood. The product possesses superior quality and performance characteristics including complete resistance to stains, odors, absorption of oil or liquid chemicals, microbial and insect attack. EKO-FLOR will not corrode, delaminate or absorb water. The solution is cost-effective, has a reduced carbon footprint and is environmentally responsible. In 2009, Conforce and Bayer, a leading global material sciences conglomerate, became project partners for the purposes of commercializing EKO-FLOR. The product has been certified by the American Bureau of Shipping for use in ocean-going containers worldwide and recently passed TTMA RP-37 certification for use in highway trailers. The Company has commenced customer evaluations of its product with top-tier shipping lines and highway trailer manufacturers. For more information on the Company, please visit www.conforceintl.com.
