Press release date: September 30, 2003

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 2003 - Buckhom Custom Molding, a division of Buckhorn Inc has developed EverKote™ - a colorful, durable new product to improve the performance, safety, and appearance of children's playsets, fences, decks, docks, and more. Buckhorn Custom Molding created EverKote using a patented process that bonds structural foam plastic directly with the wood. The result is a rot- and insect-resistant product that can be cut, drilled, and easily assembled like wood, but has the dimensional stability and easy maintenance of plastic.

Buckhorn's new manufacturing process molds 4" x 4" x 8' posts of heavy-duty structural foam plastic with an engineered wood core, creating a stronger, more durable post that resists warping, moisture, and pests. EverKote posts feature a smooth surface and rounded edges that will not splinter, making them ideal for child-oriented products, outdoor building material, or other products where safety and durability is a concern. Molded in a variety of fade-resistant colors, EverKote can be ordered pre-cut, and pre-drilled with molded-in bosses and sealants for ease of installation. EverKote posts are featured in Backyard Escapes Playcenters™ by Hedstrom which are sold through Toys "R" Us and Wal-Mart retail stores.
