MJB Buys PacTrim’s Southern Mills
(June 9, 2017) MJB Wood Group, Irving, Tx., has become the nation’s largest MDF millwork producer with its purchase of Pacific MDF Products’ two facilities in the Southeast.
The addition of the Pacific MDF Products of Arkansas plant in El Dorado, Ar., and Pacific MDF Products of South Carolina mill in Clio, S.C., transforms MJB from a regional manufacturer to a national supplier of MDF moulding and millwork. In addition to expanding MJB’s distribution across the South and Northeast, the acquisition also strengthens its manufacturing footprint and allows for future growth in industrial markets.
Under the deal, Rocklin, Ca.-based Pacific MDF Inc. and Alberta-based Canadian MDF Products Co. will continue to own and operate their plants in California and Canada.
“I am very excited about bringing together a larger, more efficient manufacturing base to better serve our customers and our suppliers while leveraging the market expertise, talent and technology of the MJB team,” said president and CEO Joe Caldwell. “We look forward to expanding our product offering and added-value capabilities for our customers who are so desperately looking for a solution to the current shortage of qualified workers.”
