The UCS Forest Group, which operates in Canada as Upper Canada Forest Products Ltd., announced it reached an agreement to acquire the assets and ongoing business activities of the British Columbia business unit of White-Wood Distributors Ltd.
“Our corporate strategy to grow in key markets continues across North America and we are very excited about this most recent opportunity,” UCS president and CEO Warren Spitz said in a statement.
“Our decision to complete this transaction with Upper Canada was based in part on our shared values and commitment to excellence in customer service,” White-Wood president and CEO Mark Yusishen said. “We are confident that our valued customers in B.C. will continue to be well-served.”
This is the third acquisition in the last 10 months for the UCS Forest Group, which recently acquired Reimer Hardwoods operations in Alberta and the Atlas Lumber Co. in Los Angeles.
The company said White-Wood’s operations will be integrated into Upper Canada’s facilities in a timely manner.
