In the past, the company has marketed its product only to independent hardware stores in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Recently, however, Reggie Sherman, VP of marketing, has negotiated deals with several large construction companies.

(The price in 2011 to hardware stores was $15 per gallon, and this will not be affected by the new deals.)
