Our Roots

Our story is rooted in one man’s belief that it was time for a different kind of lumber company –one that delivered the service, professionalism and transparency that customers deserve.

In 1986, Warren Spitz started UCS Forest Group with a goal of delivering this difference. Through a balanced operating approach, careful planning and an unwavering focus on building strong relationships with customers and suppliers, UCS has grown steadily over the last 30 years. Today, it is North America’s premier distributor and importer of high quality hardwood and softwood lumber, composite panels, plywood, specialty wood and decorative surfaces.

Sustainability & ESG Rating

When it comes to our commitment to the environment, actions truly speak louder than words. We source woodworking materials that are FSC® certified, ECC, TSCA VI and LEED compliant, and our products have won several environmental awards. Our buildings use smart innovations, such as proximity lighting and electric forklifts, to further reduce our energy use and our lunchrooms are plastic bottle free and plastic straw free.
