The Company:

GRASSBuilt™ represents a multi-disciplined collaboration introducing bamboo fiber to advancements within the US forestry products industry. GRASSBuilt™ commands proprietary manufacturing technology which redefines engineered bamboo materials. Large-dimension, code-approved, price-competitive rated materials represent our mission. Meeting the demands of Sustainable Design and Development are becoming forevermore practical, and cost-effective. GRASSBuilt™ endeavors to contribute to such advancements.

Bamboo is a giant “grass” demonstrating unique fiber characteristics. “GRASSBuilt™” also represents “Green Renewable Affordable Sustainable Systems”, and our US-Based operations demonstrate this with an expanding list of 1st-&-Only achievements. The results offer bamboo’s Rapidly Renewable designation, and also “Locally Sourced” & Made in the USA. Upon full scale, our proprietary manufacturing systems will compliment Tall Wooden Structure designs, and Engineered Wood Products markets. GRASSBuilt™ material takes advantage of the well-known tensile strength found within bamboo fibers. The result produces net-new American-Based products — offsetting a foreign monopoly.  GRASSBuilt™: Exceptional Fibers + Advanced Technology = New Materials

The Challenge:

It seemed improbable to compete directly with a Chinese-based industry representing 98% of the global market. It seemed impossible to manufacture engineered bamboo materials in the US where no viable feedstocks had yet been commercially established. It seemed impractical to begin building an entirely new bamboo economy in the US under such circumstances. It was exhilarating to overcome such challenges and solve the puzzle.

The Belief:

We began with a belief that an American bamboo economy should be possible since the US is the #1 importer of all bamboo products representing roughly 36% of global consumption annually. We believe it is well established that many species of commercially-viable bamboo grow well in the Southeastern US. We believe that US job-loss and the underemployment of numerous skilled US workers create an instant unity between a new agriculture and manufacturing industry, and the community. We believe that bamboo is the #1 most rapidly-renewable and sustainable bio-fiber in the world. We believe bamboo carries numerous additional advantages such as not requiring replanting, all the while preserving and creating new topsoils. Bamboo also enhances nutrients in the topsoils. We believe commercial bamboo crops not requiring endless agro-chemicals resulting in unwanted toxic runoffs is highly noteworthy. We also believe in American ingenuity.

The Solution:

Bamboo is a giant “grass.” “GRASSBuilt™” stands not only for bamboo being a giant grass, but also for “Green Renewable Affordable Sustainable Systems.” GRASSBuilt™ is the result of multiple disciplines collaborating together and solving a macro-puzzle. GRASSBuilt™ has engineered proprietary manufacturing systems which can produce commercial-grade, structurally engineered, bamboo billets up to 60′ x 4′ x 9 1/2″ complimenting the latest advancements in tall-wood construction techniques. the bamboo engineered material made by GRASSBuilt™  carries performance values beyond any engineered building materials ever produced from organic feedstocks — taking advantage of the extreme well-known tensile strength found within bamboo fibers. GRASSBuilt™ is the result of American Ingenuity.

Let’s rethink how we create and design the world around us. It’s time to support the New American Bamboo Economic Revolution: NABER. Every time you purchase GRASSBuilt™ materials you support a new American industry assuring high-quality and American standards. This is the beginning of an American legacy we will proudly pass down for generations to come.
