In late 2019 King Lumber was acquired by The Lincoln Companies to further penetrate the 1” board market, previously served solely from Lincoln’s Jasper, Texas facility. King Lumber has a rich history of providing quality wood products to the market for over 45 years, and shares Lincoln’s business philosophies of honesty, integrity, and quality of products and services to both their customers and business partners. The Gaddis family have been well known and respected members of the lumber community, and the community of Forest, Mississippi, for decades, and Lincoln was proud to be able to partner with them to continue this tradition.
Bringing King’s expertise and technical experience to the Lincoln family of companies has been a great benefit to both organizations, and will continue to provide exceptional benefit to the enterprise and our stakeholders for year to come. Likewise, bringing Lincoln’s corporate structure and scale to King’s operations allow all involved to capitalize on the combined strengths of the organizations, and to realize not just market share gains but true value gains for our suppliers and customers alike.
From King’s production facility in Forest, MS they have the capability of producing in excess of 40 million board feet of 1” Southern Yellow Pine boards through the plant per year, and have contracts for logistics with internal and external fleets to provide quick delivery to our customers.
