Tolko chooses Silvaris Corporation as exclusive Sales
agent for North American Off-Cuts and Off-Grade
Sales to be managed by web-based technologies

       Bellevue, Washington – June 17, 2009 – Silvaris Corporation today announced
the finalization of an agreement with Tolko Marketing and Sales Ltd. to handle all North
American sales of Off-cut and Off-grade OSB products.
       Tolko chose Silvaris because of its long history and success in selling off-grade
OSB. Silvaris’ business model for OSB sales is focused exclusively on off-grade and this
has led the company to being the North American leader in industrial sales of off-grade
OSB. Silvaris uses the latest technologies in selling OSB, and they have experienced
unprecedented success in marketing OSB products online, through their OSBMarket
website ( Buyers who are looking for Tolko’s Off-cut and Off-
grade OSB products can visit the site and see up-to-the-minute delivered pricing for
their region, anytime 24/7.
       “We see this agreement as a win for Tolko, our Customers and Silvaris. We
recognize our customers will need to change how they purchase off-cut and off-grade
OSB. However, we are confident Silvaris’s web-based approach, transparent pricing and
convenient 24/7 order capabilities will simplify purchasing for our customers,” says
Michael Sivucha, Tolko’s North American Sales and Marketing Manager, OSB and
Specialty Panels.
       Eric Miller, VP of Panel Markets for Silvaris, says “We are excited to be able to
add Tolko’s products to OSBMarket. We see this expansion as something that gives us
the ability to provide even better service and wider selection to our customers.”
