"We've specified Lamboo for all of our customer area furniture. In addition to its inherent sustainable qualities it mills beautifully. This allows us to use some joinery techniques that have been forgotten and lost to cheaper and more expedient particle board and cam-locks." Vincent Vumbaco said. "Lamboo is a material that's in-line with our thinking at Naked Pizza. It's unique and relevant without being preachy or precious."

Lamboo, Inc. Supplies Structural Components For Glulam Beams & Members

altLamboo Inc. has recently partnered with Western Structures, the leader in providing glulam beams and other structural building materials for the US and Eastern Asian commercial construction market.

Western Structures, Inc. established in 1989, is a manufacturer of custom, top-quality glulam beams now offering Lamboo as a new species selection. Western Structures says, “Glulams made with Lamboo components will be “off the charts” in terms of strength and durability.” Western has carved a name for themselves among builders, architects and developers all over the world. Western Structures products can be found in high profile projects and residences across the United States.
