Over the next 4 weeks all Engineered Lumber customers of Sherwood Lumber will be provided an introduction and a plan for a smooth transition to US LUMBER which will occur on March 25th. With this transaction both US LUMBER and Sherwood Lumber are very excited to be quickly moving toward their respective core competency; Sherwood Lumber being the premier wholesale distributor of Forest Products and US LUMBER the premiere wholesale distributor of Engineered Lumber Products and Specialty Building Products.
