Culpeper Wood Preservers, Culpeper, Va., has acquired Eden Wood Preserving and Coastal Wood Industries in Fruitland, Md.

The location—Culpeper’s twelfth treating plant—will be renamed Culpeper of Fruitland.

“We are excited about this opportunity and addition to our company. Culpeper of Fruitland will primarily treat wood for our marine division allowing us to add to our portfolio of products and customers,” said president Jonathan Jenkins. “As our company grows our focus still remains on the partnerships we have forged with both our vendors and customers.”

Port Lumber, which is owned by the Latham family, will remain in business. “Although our family has sold our operations in Maryland, Port Lumber will continue offering our customers the same service and quality they have come to expect from us. We look forward to sourcing our products from Culpeper of Fruitland and building that relationship moving forward,” said Jim Latham, owner of Port Lumber.
