A global lumber supplier aims to strengthen its supply chain and hardwood offerings with the acquisition of West Michigan-based logging company Post Hardwoods Inc. The acquisition will give Northwest Hardwoods Inc., or NWH, access to Post Hardwoods’ extensive log sales business and to more sought-after tree species in NWH’s glacial growing region of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Founded in 1980, Post Hardwoods manufactures and supplies a diverse range of hardwood lumber and logs. The company operates a 13,500-square-foot sawmill in Hamilton, roughly 35 miles southwest of Grand Rapids. NWH officials say the acquisition of Post Hardwoods will enhance the company’s product range and sourcing capabilities for a broadened supply chain. …Post Hardwoods today operates on 20 acres at its site in Hamilton and offers walnut, red oak, white oak, hard maple and cherry wood products. NWH, which is headquartered in Frisco, Texas, currently supplies lumber across North America as well as Europe and Asia.
