Competition Breeds Innovation

Meanwhile, another plastic lumber company was starting in Minnesota. In 1998, Bedford Technology was founded by Brian Larson in Worthington, MN. An engineer by trade and innovator by passion, Brian found Bedford Technology to find a use for plastic waste from Bedford Industries, which produces twist ties for the coffee, bakery and produce industries. The engineers at Bedford Technology found a useful and environmentally-friendly solution and started manufacturing plastic lumber. SelectForce® was the first recycled plastic lumber product line offered by Bedford Technology, with beloved brands of FiberForce, BarForce, SeaPile and SeaTimber to follow.
