Company Changes

In January 2017, we completed the final phase of our purchase of Beadles Lumber Company and Balfour Lumber Company Inc. of Georgia, and integrated their fleet of 10 trucks into our New South Express trucking fleet. We added additional vehicles, and were able to increase the area served by New South Express to include Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas as well as the Carolinas.

In October, we finalized our acquisition of Wynndel Box and Lumber Ltd., a sawmill located in the Creston Valley of British Columbia that produces premium boards and customized specialty wood products.

In March, we completed the sale of our 50% investment in Anthony EACOM Inc., an I-joist plant located in Sault Ste. Marie, ON.
