Happy 20th Birthday, LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding!
by Amy Lindholm, April 10, 2017
LP is excited to announce it has reached an important milestone in the history of the LP® SmartSide® brand: a twentieth anniversary!
2017 marks LP SmartSide products twentieth year as a leading building industry brand, and one of the fastest-growing brands of exterior siding in the U.S. today. Since its launch in 1997, LP SmartSide siding has proven to be a robust, performance-driven product that continues to grow in popularity among builders, architects, remodelers and homeowners.
Amy Lindholm, brand manager for LP’s siding segment, acknowledged the tremendous team effort necessary to reach this anniversary milestone. “LP SmartSide siding is successful because many talented, dedicated people have done their best over the past two decades to craft products that consistently perform at a high level. The employees at our mills are incredible! For 20 years, they have been producing what we all believe is the best engineered wood siding in the world,” said Lindholm. “We also recognize our knowledgeable sales force and hardworking administrative employees in key markets across North America. This anniversary is a testament to the quality and dedication that goes into every inch of LP SmartSide trim and siding.”
