ELEMENTAL Hardwoods Adds Kempas to Exotic Hardwood Flooring Line

Elemental Hardwoods has added solid Kempas to its premium line of exotic hardwood flooring products. Sometimes called Asian Cherry, Kempas (Koompassia malaccensis botanical name) is ideal for transforming ordinary flooring into long-lasting, beautiful and natural works of art, shared the company.

“We’ve spent the past 25 years focused on finding responsible and sustainable sources for some of the most gorgeous hardwood flooring species on the planet,” said John McGlocklin, Elemental Hardwood’s owner and founder. “Most of our woods come from the greater Amazon River Basin due to my 18 years living and milling in Brazil, and regular travels to Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru. So, when a good Indonesian FSC forest resource for Kempas appeared, we jumped on the chance to add it to our solid exotics line, which we are now stocking in Oregon and New Jersey.”

“ELEMENTAL’s focus on lesser-known, high-performing and stunning wood species give our wholesale flooring customers something unique and different to offer. Kempas is a reasonably well-known tropical wood species, but our solid product is from the best raw material forest source and produced with careful FSC sustainable harvesting, two distinctions that made it an especially appealing addition to our product line.”

ELEMENTAL Kempas flooring is currently available in the USA in solid 3/4″ x 3.5″ x 1-6′ prefinished low gloss with 17.44 SF per box. For more information, visit www.elementalhardwoods.com, email info@elementalhardwoods.com or call 504-756-8876.
