Timberlyne Group/Sand Creek Post & Beam, Wayne, Ne., has acquired Cass Forest Products, Cass Lake, Mn., and its subsidiary, Aitkin Hardwoods, Aitkin, Mn.
Timberlyne Group is no stranger to sawmill operations, purchasing Dickinson Timber, Kelliher, Mn., in 2017. With the addition of Cass, newly renamed Timberlyne Wood Products, Timberlyne Group can better serve their customers by ensuring both the quality and reliable supply of the timbers used in their structures.
“With the scarcity of wood and volatility of the current lumber market we felt securing our own sources of timber just made sense on so many levels. The added bonus of being able to offer custom hardwood flooring, paneling and millwork created by Aitkin Hardwoods to our customers is just icing on the cake,” said co-founder and board member Jule Goeller.
Cass Forest Products began in 1989 and has served the home building industry for 33 years, earning a reputation for kiln-dried quality wood and high safety standards. Founded in 1998, Aitkin Hardwood will continue to operate its showroom and mill shop.
Co-founder and chairman Len Dickinson noted, “Cass Forest Products has been one of our main sources of high-quality timbers for many years, so making it part of the Timberlyne Group family seems like the perfect fit.”
