Millar Western Acquires Alberta Manufacturer

Millar Western Forest Products continues its growth strategy with the acquisition of Spruceland Millworks Inc. Millar Western has acquired all shares of the company, its manufacturing operations in Acheson, Alberta, and its woodlands assets. The transaction brings together two companies that have enjoyed a productive business relationship for decades.

Spruceland Millworks is a value-added manufacturer and international distributor of SPF wood products. Started in 1982 by Ben Sawatzky with a simple table saw and a second-hand forklift, the company has grown to become a “go-to” supplier for its customers in the region, says Millar Western. Spruceland has more than 100 employees and operates a 130,000-square foot manufacturing facility. read more >>
