Headquartered in Grand Rapids, MI, Universal is a multi-billion-dollar corporation that is publicly traded (NASDAQ: UFPI) with approximately 10,000 people who work in more than 100 facilities across North America.

Universal is the leading producer of pressure treated wood and North America’s largest manufacturer of engineered roof systems for manufactured housing and site-built construction.The company is America’s leading buyer of solid sawn lumber and the largest customer of North America’s largest mills.

Their national presence allows them to serve retailers, builders, and manufacturers who are growing as a result of industry consolidation and who seek strong national partners to meet multiple needs. Because the company has locations coast to coast, it also serves smaller, independent businesses and helps grow their success.

As the nation’s leading manufacturer and distributor of wood and wood-alternative products, Universal Forest Products sells in truckload quantities to four markets: retail/do-it yourself, industrial, site-built construction, and manufactured housing. They are the nation’s leading distributor of wood and outdoor living products.

Our ability to service them with high quality 4x4 and 4x6 timbers has made Riceboro Lumber a preferred supplier for their southeastern locations. Our products have been supplied to their facilities ranging from Miami, Florida to Hamilton, Ohio. Let’s continue to work together to make both Universal Forest Products and Riceboro Lumber successful during 2007.
