The Atlas Lumber Co. in Chino Calif., was acquired by the UCS Forest Group and will be managed as a division of Sierra Forest Products.
Atlas, founded by the Porter family in 1944, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.
“We are delighted that the Porter family has accepted the offer from Sierra, which will create an opportunity for substantial growth for the company, its employees and stakeholders,” USC Forest Group president and CEO Warren Spitz said in a statement.
“We are also excited that Randy Porter will continue to manage Atlas as a division of Sierra Forest Products Inc. We look forward to building on the successful 70-year history of Atlas Lumber, and to welcome its wonderful team of people as our new teammates and friends. It was apparent from the start of this process that the Porter family and the Atlas team very much share values with our group, as well as a culture of providing customers with exceptional service and delivering high quality, sustainably sourced wood products. We are very excited about this opportunity to enter the California market, and to having this well-managed company and proud team join our group.”
