Plyboo Bamboo Sports Flooring

Who is Plyboo?

Plyboo is proudly known as North America’s premier supplier of quality bamboo plywood and flooring products.

Smith & Fong, founded in 1989, developed their award-winning architectural -grade bamboo products to thrive on quality, service and sustainability. Their bamboo products can be found in both residential and commercial areas around the world.The creators believed that bamboo was the solution to some of the social and environmental challenges taking place in the world.

The journey began with the creation of bamboo boxes and gradually developed into the creation of bamboo flooring. Smith & Fong spent their time developing various lines of bamboo flooring and plywood with varying sizes and applications. Later, they launched their strand line of flooring which involves the bamboo being thrashed pressed into logs rather than being cut into strips and laminated. The bamboo logs are sliced and manufactured into flooring or plywood, in turn, creating a denser material with a completely new aesthetic.

The company were the first to offer FSC certified 100% bamboo flooring, plywood and veneer in North America. The reason for choosing bamboo was due to the fact that is a renewable and readily available alternative source of material. Abiding by the company's environmental ideals, the palm trees from which the wood is milled are coconut palms that no longer yield fruit.

In 2001, the company expanded further and launched a product line made completely of coconut palm. The company now offer wide variety of sustainable products across the world. Smith & Fong are dedicated to sustainability and believe in sharing their knowledge to improve the understanding of bamboo’s potential to address social and environmental challenges.
