“I have been buying tropical hardwood decking for over 30 years in the Charleston area,” said Larry Broadway, Four Corners purchasing manager. “The quality, consistency and breadth of product offerings are by far the best I have seen in the market. When paired with Tropical Forest Products’ Legal Lumber Due Care environmental compliance program, we know that our customers are assured, not only the best possible hardwood decking outcome, but also the most ethically sourced hardwood decking, accessories and cladding products on the market at competitive prices.”
