It takes fortitude and ingenuity to carve out a life in the woods. Richlite Company pioneered the paper-composite surface industry beginning in 1943 beneath the majestic mountains and primeval forests of America’s Pacific Northwest. The first patent was also obtained in 1943. Historically, Richlite has also been called Cellulose Products, Tacoma Plywood Co., American Plywood Co, Rainier Plywood Co. and Rainier Richlite. Richlite first introduced panels in the aerospace industry, later moving onto commercial cutting boards and food prep surfaces, marine industry, skate ramps and extreme sports industry, and finally the architectural market.
Like its surroundings, natural beauty, longevity and sustainability give Richlite’s materials a mark of distinction in the architectural community. It’s a versatile product with character that complements rugged to refined designs from urban centers to mountain hideaways. Architects and designers consistently surprise us with the creative uses they find for Richlite. Kitchens, baths, commercial reception areas, stair treads, exterior wall cladding, cutting surfaces, guitar parts, outdoor furniture, signage, luxury ping pong tables, it never ends. And the product lasts a lifetime.
