Weston Forest acquires Kings Wood
Weston Forest, a distributor and remanufacturer of softwood and hardwood lumber and specialty panel products, has acquired Kings Wood Products of Paris, Ont.
“Kings Wood Products expands our manufacturing base in Canada while adding to the mix of products we can offer our existing Industrial customers,” said Steve Rhone, president and CEO of Weston Forest.
“Kings has been a key customer of ours for decades, and this is a natural progression for both companies. They have an excellent reputation in their industry, and the Kings niche product mix is a logical addition to Weston’s existing Industrial offerings,” Rhone added.
“This new partnership with Weston Forest is the right direction for our business. Weston has been a trusted supplier of ours for a very long time, and this move provides the continuity we want for our people, and for our customers,” said Dennis Kings, president of Kings Wood Products.
This acquisition represents Weston’s sixth in the last decade and their second since the company was purchased by the Watermill Group in 2021.
