~ Wholesale Plywood and Panel Products Distributor Broadens Product Offering ~

Batavia, IL, June 25, 2020 – Atlantic Plywood, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parksite, has expanded their product mix with the addition of FENIX®.  Created by Arpa Industriale and introduced in 2013, FENIX is a technical and aesthetic answer to today’s interior design trends: smart materials and matte surfaces. FENIX is defined by its unique characteristics such as an extreme matte finish that is anti-fingerprint and thermally repairable, thanks to its innovative surface technology—an excellent choice for kitchens, hospitality, healthcare, partition systems, reception areas and furniture.

Inspired by Italian tradition, FENIX features 20 elegant colors and represents a unique alternative to other materials. “We are excited to be among the select distributors chosen to represent Fenix to all our customers and specifiers in the eastern US, including our newest locations in Atlanta and Charlotte. The soft touch, warm appearance, extreme durability, and thermo healing properties achieved with electron beam curing technology—truly make this an innovative and unique material” stated Product Category Manager, Ken Zarrella.

“We are proud and excited to be partnered with the FENIX brand, part of the Formica Corporation," Tony Millhouse, vice president of sales, stated. "At Parksite, we pride ourselves on building and maintaining mutually successful relationships. Our organizations are aligned philosophically with providing quality products, education and market support to our customers."

Parksite acquired Atlantic Plywood Corporation, a leading distributor of industrial wood products and accessories in the Northeastern United States in January 2018.  “The purpose of the acquisition of Atlantic Plywood was to combine the resources of two great companies and expand into areas we couldn’t do separately.  Creating one company to deliver product solutions from industrial wood products, to premium surfacing materials to specialty building will provide customers an unmatched resource in our markets”, stated Ron Heitzman, CEO of Parksite Inc.
