Tyler, TX – We met with Kyle Gillin from Blackwood to discuss his line of specialty rubber infused lumber. Blackwood makes strong, long-lasting lumber for various uses. Specializing in the trailer industry, Blackwood lumber can support everything from motorcycles to herds of cattle. Using the finest southern yellow pines, quality rubber, and a special Sika bonding agent, Blackwood creates products designed to last.
Blackwood launched May 28, 2014 with its signature Blackwood Classic style lumber. After testing out several different bonding agents, Kyle ended up with Sika. He credits his relationship with Sika’s Ryan Rollen as an important part of Blackwood’s success. Blackwood products quickly became incorporated into a variety of trailers from 15 trailer manufacturers. Everything from horse trailers to flatbeds to 53-foot semi-trailers.
In September 2015, Kyle launched Blackwood Pro, an exclusive style for PJ Trailers. Blackwood and PJ Trailers have a great partnership to build high quality trailers. PJ Trailers even gave away a 25 foot FS Gooseneck trailer with Blackwood Pro lumber in celebration of their 250,000th Facebook fan. 19,000 people applied to win this beautiful trailer.
If you were thinking of investing in a high quality trailer, look for one with Blackwood lumber.
