VISTA, Calif., Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — EcoBlu Products, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ECOB) announced today that the company has signed a product Application Services Agreement with Mid-State Properties of Central Florida, LLC. located in Lakeland, Florida. Under the terms of the agreement, the Mid-State Companies will treat EcoBlu Products lumber, build EcoBlu’s humanitarian house packages and manage lumber inventory for wholesale distribution to the Southeast region allowing EcoBlu to rapidly expand market share.

A successful roll out of our Patent Pending WoodSurfaceFilm(TM) treatment requires the product availability in strategic locations around the country.

“As a founding principal in Wood Smart Solutions, Inc. and as the patent holder of coating technology on roof trusses, I was the first to recognize the importance of topically treating roof trusses for the prevention of mold. We are very pleased to be joining forces with EcoBuilding Products(TM). Good Wood(TM) by Eco is the newest technology in wood protection. Eco has a revolutionary chemistry that insures the highest form of coating protection; preventing mold and termites with the added benefit of fire resistance while maintaining a real quality control program to insure their process is consistent from factory to factory. There is nothing like it!” according to Mike Reed, President and CEO of Mid-State Truss. “A house is not a home without Good Wood(TM). We look forward to advancing the cause of Good Wood(TM) to homebuilder’s worldwide,” added Reed.
