Hancock Lumber acquires Mainely Trusses
Hancock Lumber has acquired Mainely Trusses, a roof and floor truss manufacturing facility based in Fairfield, Maine. Two Maine businesses are joining forces with the acquisition.
The addition of Mainely Trusses makes Hancock Lumber the first retailer in Maine to own and operate its own roof and floor truss manufacturing facility, with the ability to provide a complete set of wood framing solutions to its customers.
Manufacturing is not new to Hancock Lumber; in fact, the company’s roots began in 1848 with milling logs into lumber and continues today with their three Eastern White Pine sawmills and wall panel manufacturing facility. Adding roof and floor truss manufacturing brings another product line direct from the manufacturer to builders.
“Mainely Trusses has an excellent reputation in the construction industry across Maine. The company also has a set of core values that we like, admire and feel is aligned with Hancock’s. People matter at Mainely Trusses and the company has high standards in terms of employee engagement and customer service. We felt there was a lot we could learn from the company and some value we could add. When the opportunity to acquire Mainely Trusses materialized we recognized quickly that it would be a good long-term move that strengthened both companies,” said Kevin Hancock, CEO of Hancock Lumber.
