At Leek & Associations, our firm understands that that the wood products industry is undergoing an extremely competitive period, perhaps the most in its history. The industry is primarily controlled by the giants of the industry, causing many smaller companies providing tree farming, logging, milling and other products and services within the industry to have to struggle to complete – often having to close down their operations when they are unable to meet the competition.
The aging of the industry’s workforce and increased automation using expensive machinery often requires companies in the wood products industry to seek capital financing. These companies – particularly the smaller family-owned and closely-held companies – need a financial partner on their management team who understands the unique challenges of the industry.
