Roseburg CEO elected chairman of AWC
Allyn Ford, CEO of Roseburg Forest Products, has been elected chairman of the American Wood Council (AWC), effective January 2018 for a one-year term.
Danny White, a director of T.R. Miller Mill Company, was elected the first vice-chairman, and Neil Sherman, executive vice president of siding at LP Corporation, was elected as second vice-chairman. Current AWC board chairman, Stimson Lumber CEO Andrew Miller, will serve as the immediate past chairman.
Sean McLaren, vice president of U.S. lumber operations for West Fraser, was confirmed as a new member to the AWC board.
“Andrew was at the helm during a time of significant opportunity for the wood products industry,” said AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski. “With his leadership as chairman this past year we completed important work to prepare for the 2021 code cycle and address challenges we face in the marketplace. I look forward to working with Allyn as we move into the new building code cycle in January, as well as on efforts across all our other programs and activities.”
Based in Leesburg, Va., the AWC represents about 86% of the U.S. structural wood products industry and provides engineering data, technology updates, and standards for wood products to assure safe and efficient building design. The AWC also advocates for government policies that affect wood products.

Tamko adds new shingle colors in Southeast
Tamko Building Products has introduced four new shingle colors in the southeastern United States.
The colors include rustic brown, grey mist, driftwood and painted desert, which have been added to Tamko's line of Heritage laminated asphalt shingles. The product is being produced in the company’s Tuscaloosa, Ala., manufacturing facility.
Rustic brown features several shades of deep brown, with red highlights and black lowlights while grey mist is a combination of light to mid grey tones. Driftwood features a variety of mid-tone browns to create the illusion of deep shadowing. Painted desert has a mid-tone golden base, with bold highlights and lowlights in shades of blue, green, red, gold and brown.
“Tamko's customers in the southeast U.S. can now enjoy an expanded range of our already extensive collection of beautiful shingle colors for the Heritage line,” said Stephen McNally, Tamko's VP of sales and marketing.
Based in Joplin, Mo., Tamko is one of the nation’s largest independent manufacturers of shingles and roofing products.
