Nation’s Best acquired Forslund Building Supply, a company serving customers in the upper peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin.
“As a dominant player in a rural market, Forslund Building Supply couldn’t be a better fit for the Nation’s Best family,” Chris Miller, president and CEO of Nation’s Best, said in a prepared statement. “As we continue to expand our presence across the country, the [upper peninsula] is an appealing area with tremendous growth opportunities. Through three generations, Forslund Building Supply has established a strong brand and an even stronger reputation for serving their communities in Michigan and Wisconsin.”
As part of Nation’s Best’s strategy, Forslund Building Supply will maintain operations under its existing brand name and retain its key leadership team overseeing the company. Nation’s Best will provide strategic and financial support to drive optimal growth and profitability, according to the company.
“We proudly trace our history back to our founding in 1950,” Gus Forslund, owner of Forslund Building Supply, said. “And with Nation’s Best at our side, I know we’ll be able to take our business to the next level, serving our customers even better. There’s also tremendous potential for us to expand the Forslund brand in our market and I’m proud to be able to be a part of this next step in our company’s history.”
Nation’s Best, founded in 2019, is a member-owner of Do it Best Corp., a U.S. based hardware, lumber, and building materials buying cooperative in the home improvement industry.
