Universal Forest Products addresses economic costs and environmental impact globally

Our Sources

While Universal Forest Products purchases lumber from around the world and from nearly all continents, we do so with strict policies and practices in place to assure that the lumber you purchase is responsibly harvested. In South America and New Zealand, for instance, we buy primarily plantation-grown North American pines. The wood we buy from China and Europe also is plantation-grown. All in an effort to assure that, in addition to being mindful of economic costs, we are also mindful of our environmental impact.

Universal Forest Products is a holding company that provides capital, management and administrative resources to subsidiaries in three robust markets: retail, construction and industrial. Founded in 1955, the Company is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., with affiliates throughout North America and Australia.
