CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - January 24, 2011

Sierra Forest Products is moving to a new location, effective January 31, 2011.

Established in Chicago in 2000, Sierra Forest Products has made a significant impact on the local building and housing market in the Chicago land area. They have now outgrown their original Downs Drive facility and are relocating to 1801 Hawthorne Lane, West Chicago (a mile from the old location) on January 31, 2011.

At 100,000 square feet the new Sierra headquarters on Hawthorne Lane provides a fifty percent increase in warehouse and office space.
