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.

Environmental Responsibility

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.


Our Community

Within our communities, we understand that the needs are wide ranging. Every employee is given one full day, paid, to contribute as a volunteer to the Charity of their choice. Over the years these volunteers days have combined to create incredible and lasting impact in the communities in which we live and work. Financial donations are also important to the lifeblood of charitable work. We proudly support numerous charities locally, nationally and internationally, who do work that we believe in.
