Fla-based Ebel Inc is eyeing 2015 with a new collection called the Calais. Items in the collection are available in Driftwood or Chestnut, along with two seating depths—Lux and Standard. The sectional offers “split” corners, where part of the sectional is standard depth, and the other can be Lux depth.

The Calais continues a tradition begun by Ebel Inc in 1988 with Anne Ebel (president) selling resin benches out of Virginia Beach, Va. Now, based out of Jacksonville, FL, Ebel Inc. continues to successfully operate – on a much larger scale – with the same “family company” values the business started on.

That team philosophy has helped Ebel Inc partner with dealers across the US, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean—and now Ebel products can be found on residential and commercial properties.

In the global environment, Ebel Inc is making every effort to remain environmentally responsible. All aluminum and weather wicker is 100% recyclable, and teak parts are only harvested from sustainable plantations.

Providing a strong and long-lasting product not only ensures low maintenance for the consumer, but also helps to keep the environment a cleaner place by reducing the amount of harmful chemical cleaners needed, and by reducing the amount of waste.

In 2008, Ebel Inc partnered with Trees for the Future, an organization committed to furthering sustainable agroforestry in developing countries. Since its inception, Trees for the Future has planted nearly 50 million trees – estimated to remove 1 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.

Ebel Inc. has committed to planting enough trees to offset the carbon emissions resulting from the daily operations at its Sunshine State headquarters. The company has also committed to plant one tree for every piece of furniture produced and have already planted more than 85,000 trees.

As of 2009, all marketing materials are printed in a facility that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, whose mission is to promote well-managed forests by ensuring forestry practices that are environmentally responsible, socially equitable and economically viable.
