Innovative Building-Product Company Gets Green Light, Goes to Market

G.R. Green Building Products of Burnaby, B.C. won the $20,000 British Columbia Innovation Council Economic Impact award in the 2009 competition.

The company has since raised a further $200,000, passed all independent tests for Canadian certification of its roofing products and received patent approval for its innovative process to manufacture “green” roofing and siding materials made from limestone and recycled plastic bottles and bags.

GR Green, which has five employees, is poised to enter the Canadian market this spring and then expand into the remainder of North America and selected major industrialized countries worldwide.
