November 20, 2015 – StevensWood is pleased to announce Peterman Lumber as the newest distributor for Stevens' premium woodgrain textures. Peterman Lumber will promote the line in Southern California, Nevada and Arizona, distributing StevensWood's award-winning Legno Collection. Legno is a collection of 18 rich hues, with two woodgrain species, Tokaj Alder and Walnut Tiepolo. This high-end collection is unique, with the panels being embossed in registration, precisely matching texture to grain. The line includes thermofused panels, high-impact surfacing, edgebanding, five-piece doors and mouldings.

Bill Lane, Marketing & Distribution Chain Manager for StevensWood, said, "Serving the Southwest for more than 35 years, Peterman has a highly regarded reputation for top-notch service and building trade expertise. From their skilled sales force and eagerness to embrace new surface technology, we knew they'd make tremendous partners. We're pleased to welcome them as our new distribution partners. Peterman's network of facilities allows for strategic stocking distribution points for continued product growth and expansion in the Southwest. Both businesses have the desire for high quality, specialty niche products and both have industry insight to know how best to connect to the marketplace."

"We look forward to the opportunities that StevensWood will give us in the thermally fused laminate market. We offer only the best and StevensWood with their superior plate technology is the best domestic manufacturer on the market," said Jeremy Peterman.
