Robinson Lumber Company (RLC) and Tradelink Wood Products announced they have completed a transaction to sell RLC’s U.S. flooring business to Tradelink including RLC’s U.S. flooring inventory, their flooring brand, associated goodwill, and the transfer of related supplier, customer, and service provider relationships.
With this acquisition, Tradelink says it will expand its product portfolio, increase its market share, and enhance the company’s ability to meet the evolving needs of commercial distribution and specialist flooring customers.
Under the terms of the agreement, RLC will provide transition services to Tradelink Wood Products. Guiding the transition of RLC’s flooring business is Dan Lennon, who will ensure the integration of RLC’s customers, suppliers, and service providers into Tradelink’s system. Jacqueline Monteilh, a nine-year Robinson employee, has joined the Tradelink Sales Team.
Jens Bursche, president of Tradelink Wood Products Inc., stated: “This acquisition perfectly aligns with our vision of becoming the premier source for premium imported exotic hardwood flooring, including Caribbean Heart Pine flooring solutions. We are enthusiastic about the potential it unlocks and the benefits it will bring to our customers. Additionally, we will continue expanding our sales of other imported wood products, such as decking and lumber.”
“This strategic move marks an exciting chapter for both organizations,” added Lennon. “We are committed to a smooth transition for all of our valued partners, and I have the utmost confidence in Jens and the entire Tradelink team’s abilities and desire to grow.”
Robinson Lumber Company and Tradelink Wood Products are both family-owned businesses with extensive histories in the wood products industry. The two companies have shared numerous professional relationships since the 1980s, serving as customers, suppliers, and competitors across various markets. The companies say that the strategic transaction stands as a mutually beneficial step forward for both companies and their customers and suppliers.
