Kurawood is the owner, manufacturer and distributor of organically hardened softwood, trade marked 'Vecowood'.
Vecowood is made using a proprietary timber treatment process, which enables softwood such as pine to be organically treated and hardened.
Commenting, Roy Tilleard chairman of Kurawood, said: "Reaction from major retailers has been very positive over the initial products that they have been presented with made from Vecowood. This will give a firm base on which Kurawood can build its brand."
