Okanagan Wood Pellets
Acquired by American Biomass

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

American Biomass Corporation, a leader in wood pellet distribution, has completed its purchase of Okanagan Wood Pellets from Viridis Energy. With this acquisition, Okanagan pellets will be available this fall to retailers exclusively from American Biomass.

“We are excited to add the Okanagan Wood Pellet brand for our wholesale customers,” said David Nydam, CEO of New Hampshire-based American Biomass. “Okanagan is one of the highest quality brands in New England, with tremendous brand loyalty from both retailers and consumers. We are proud to be able to provide these super-premium pellets to the retailers throughout New England and beyond.”

“Okanagan Pellets have been extremely popular with our retailers and consumers alike,” said Christopher Robertson, CEO of Viridis Energy. “We are very pleased that American Biomass can now build on that history with the successful transition of Okanagan to them.”

American Biomass will begin offering these high quality softwood pellets to retailers immediately, just in time for the peak demand in wood pellets.

“Interest in this brand has been extremely strong,” added Nydam. “Retailers are delighted to have this strong brand with its strong consumer following on their shelves this winter.”
