IFG acquires Merritt Bros. mill

Idaho Forest Group, a lumber producer in the Inland Northwest, has acquired the Merritt Brothers Finger Joint mill located in Athol.

“This acquisition gives us the opportunity to learn the value-added finger-joint manufacturing process. It will enable further utilization of the fiber resource and compliments our other facilities making the most of the logs that we procure for our mills. We will carefully evaluate the capital needs of this site and invest accordingly,” said Erol Deren, Idaho Forest Group VP of Sales and Marketing.
