VISTA, Calif., June 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EcoBlu Products, Inc. (OTCBB:ECOB) announced today that it is working with the Welco Lumber Corporation of Vancouver British Columbia, Canada on developing a shipping program of EcoBlu's BLUWOOD™ coated lumber into the Asian market. Welco Lumber and EcoBlu Products, Inc. have met jointly with a large Japanese builder, producing 400 homes per month, last week and are scheduled to meet next week in British Columbia with a Korean lumber company.

Welco Lumber has been supplying building materials to the Japanese market for some time but has recently made the decision to introduce EcoBlu's BLUWOOD™ technology to be able to offer the Japanese market protection from mold, rot, decay and termites, and provide a higher quality home.

"Welco Lumber will be a strong partner for EcoBlu in the Asian markets. With their vast international experience in many markets, we know Welco will do a great job promoting BLUWOOD™technology in Japan," said Steve Conboy, President and CEO of EcoBlu Products. "Our Canadian affiliate Luxor Industrial Corporation will be providing the coating services for Welco's lumber," added Conboy.

Japan imports approximately 20,000 containers of Canadian SPF (Spruce-Pine-Fir) lumber per year. Additionally, Japan is the largest importer of softwood logs and lumber in the world, and the Asia-Pacific region is the second-largest export market for Canadian lumber, with Japan by far the leading market in the region.
