Luxor teams with Millennium
By Globe Newswire/Luxor Industrial Corporation
January 26, 2016 - Luxor Industrial Corporation, a leading manufacturer and distributor of engineered commercial and residential wood building products, announced that it has partnered with Millennium Fire LLC to use its Millennium Advanced Framing Lumber technology (MAFL16) to protect wood. Luxor will initially apply this coating on its architectural wood products.
Millennium Fire’s core product, which is MAFL16 has five key ingredients, one of which is a technology developed by No Burn Inc. that defends against fire. Additional key ingredients create a protective coating that defends against, mould, ultraviolet and moisture, which among other things protect the lumber during construction exposure. This MAFL16 coating will allow Luxor’s architectural products to meet the California Wildland, Urban Interface Codes. These new fire codes have been adopted in eight western U.S. states as a result of massive wildfires. Luxor will also market its architectural products in regions where fire codes have not been introduced so the national specifying community can select this advance lumber protection on their exterior wood details.
The current exchange rate and Luxor’s factory proximity to the U.S. border provides an additional advantage in manufacturing these products for export.
“No Burn is by far the best technically in the fire coating industry and Millennium is now their only OEM in North America,” said Steve Conboy, president and CEO of Millennium Fire LLC. “Luxor’s management team has experience with coating lumber and recognizes the value in coated wood to protect against things like fire and mould.”
“We're pretty excited about the synergies that are occurring between No Burn Inc., Millennium Fire and Luxor, particularly with regards to Steve Conboy's value-added plan and program,” added Bill Kish, president and CEO for No Burn Inc. “We believe these treated products are going to be accepted and viewed as the new gold standard."
