Ebel Inc. was founded in 1988 with Anne Ebel (President) selling resin benches out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Fast forward 22 years, and you’ve got a company known and respected in the industry for providing quality outdoor products at an unparalleled value.
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 like Ellenburg’s across the US, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, and now Ebel products can be found on residential and commercial properties in a number of countries.
In the global environment that we live in today, Ebel Inc. is making every effort to remain environmentally responsible. All aluminum and weather wicker is 100% recyclable, and our 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 our environment a cleaner place by reducing a number 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 our headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida. We have also committed to planting one tree for every piece of furniture produced and have already planted over 85,000 trees.
As of 2009 all of our 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.
