Ken Peden has joined Denver-based hardwood and bamboo flooring supplier EcoTimber Flooring as president/ceo. Peden was most recently director of the PolyFoam business at MP Global Products. He has also held positions with Kronotex USA and Quick-Step USA.

Peden told NFThe would focus on expanding on what has made EcoTimber successful, which is offering products "devoted to forest protection and healthy homes."

"We are immediately increasing our field sales coverage so we can communicate the EcoTimber message to customers. We will be introducing more green products to a very a loyal customer base. In the next 90 days, we are introducing a new line of hardwood products to complement our bamboo products," he said.

Peden noted that the company has "exceptionally high standards" for product performance and consistency. "We do not have any interest in getting into the high-volume, low-end product categories. My desire is to become the best supplier our customers do business with."
