Company Story

Over the last 20 years, Bedford Technology has grown tremendously; from people to products and more efficient processes, Bedford Technology is now recognized as the leading manufacturer of structural recycled plastic lumber. But, how did we get here?

Bedford Technology begun as the machinery arm of Bedford Industries, a twist tie manufacturer. Then, in 1998, Bedford Technology formed a separate company that focused on plastic lumber. With deep-seeded roots in engineering, Bedford Technology was formed out of innovative thinking, advanced technology and problem-solving. The plastic lumber manufacturing originated out of an environmentally-friendly need to decrease scrap material being sent to the landfill from the Bedford Industries manufacturing process.

SelectForce® by Bedford Technology was the first product line offered and acts as a great alternative to traditional building materials like wood, metal and concrete. This High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) construction material doesn’t rot, splinter or degrade. It is also impervious to moisture, insects, marine borers and mold. The benefits became clearer as more and more companies started utilizing this material, and the demand for plastic lumber quickly grew.

The engineers at Bedford Technology acknowledged the high customer demand, and took many steps to provide an even better product to serve the building materials market. These steps included product testing, implementing quality standards and offering more product lines that can be used in a wide variety of applications for the marine, industrial, agriculture, parks and recreation, landscaping industries, and more.

Bedford Technology now offers seven different product lines. SelectForce® laid the foundation and is still a high-performing product in the marketplace. Along with this staple product, FiberForce® and BarForce® add strength and structural integrity by utilizing fiberglass strand and fiberglass polymer rebar. The marine industry has also seen great success with SeaPile® and SeaTimber®, which can withstand high moisture levels and impact from boats, vessels and barges.

Bedford Technology has a rich history and has seen significant growth and technological improvements over the last 20 years.

“We are grateful for our customers all over the world and could not have accomplished what we have without your partnership and support. We celebrate our achievements and successes in the plastic lumber industry and can’t wait to see what the future holds.” – Jeff Breitzman, CEO & President
