Cedar Creek announced the signing of a letter of intent to purchase Wholesale Wood Products, an Alabama-based distributor, on Sept. 27. The transaction is expected to close within the next two months.

"This move backfills Cedar Creek's current coverage area in the Southeast between our current Tennessee and North Carolina branches and further underscores our commitment to growing the footprint of Cedar Creek," said Bill Adams, CEO if Oklahoma City-based Cedar Creek.

Wholesale Wood Products currently operates facilities and Dothan and Birmingham, Ala.

"We have known of Cedar Creek for years and believe that our customers and our employees will be well served by this change," said Wholesale Wood Products owners Jim Stuckey and Chuck Harris.

With the two Wholesale Wood Products locations, Cedar Creek will operate fourteen locations that cover seventeen states.
