California Redwood Co. completes purchase of Siskiyou Lumber

The California Redwood Co. completed the acquisition of the assets of Siskiyou Lumber Products, a California-based company specializing in remanufacturing and wholesale lumber distribution.

Siskiyou's Woodland, Calif., operations and its Ukiah, Calif., fence plant will now operate as part of The California Redwood Co., distributing redwood lumber products, Douglas fir lumber and treated lumber.

"A year ago, we announced a long-term marketing strategy of working with retailers to better understand and serve the needs of consumers," said Carl Schoenhofer, VP and general manager for The California Redwood Co., based in Eureka, Calif. "The acquisition of Siskiyou Lumber Products provides us the opportunity to get closer to consumers and allows us to offer a full range of premium redwood products directly to retail."

The products include decking, railing, fencing and garden accessories.

"We also plan to expand our product development efforts and value-added applications for redwood," Schoenhofer said.
