New owner for the Minnesota plant

Timberlyne Group/Sand Creek Post & Beam, Wayne, Ne., acquired Cass Forest Products, Cass Lake, Mn., and its subsidiary, Aitkin Hardwoods, Aitkin, Mn.

Timberlyne Group is no stranger to sawmill operations, purchasing Dickinson Timber, Kelliher, Mn., in 2017. With the addition of the newly renamed Timberlyne Wood Products Cass, Timberlyne Group can better serve its customers by providing both the quality and reliability of the supply of wood used in their structures.

“With the scarcity of wood and the volatility of today’s wood market, we felt that securing our own sources of wood made sense in many ways. The added benefit of being able to offer our customers custom hardwood flooring, wainscoting and millwork created by Aitkin Hardwoods is just icing on the cake,” said Jule Goeller, Co-Founder and Board Member .

Cass Forest Products began in 1989 and has served the home building industry for 33 years, earning a reputation for quality kiln-dried lumber and high safety standards. Founded in 1998, Aitkin Hardwood will continue to operate its showroom and sawmill.

Co-Founder and Chairman Len Dickinson said, “Cass Forest Products has been one of our main sources of high-quality lumber for many years, so bringing it into the Timberlyne Group family seems like the perfect fit.
