Despite the season of change the lumber industry has experienced the past several months, MacDonald & Owen continues to grow and seek new opportunities to allow us to create products that the ever changing market demands.
In February of this year, MacDonald & Owen Lumber officially purchased St. Croix Valley Hardwoods, now incorporated into the company brand as St. Croix Wood Component. The decision to acquire St. Croix Valley Hardwoods stems from a long standing and great customer/vendor relationship our two businesses fostered over the years. MacDonald & Owen has great respect for the business Gordy built over the last 30+ years under the St. Croix Valley Hardwoods brand.
With the passing of Gordy in the spring of 2019, MacDonald & Owen was a logical and well suited successor to continue the legacy that Gordy left.
Today more and more of our customers are looking for cost effective and value added products like moldings, panels, drawer sides and other customized lumber products.
With the addition of these new product lines, MacDonald & Owen will be able to provide our customers with volume and variety of many different species and types of hardwood lumber products with short lead times. We are truly a one-stop-shop for customers looking for hardwood products in today’s market.
The St. Croix Wood Components team is fielding various inquiries that give us high hopes for the future. We will continue to look for ways to improve our efficiency to meet our growing customer demand.
