Merger announced between USNR and Wood Fiber Group

USNR and Wood Fiber Group have announced their merger in a transaction that will create one of the world’s most comprehensive supplier of the equipment, technology, and essential tooling used in modern wood processing facilities.

USNR is an industry-leading global supplier of sawmill and plywood mill machinery, aftermarket parts, and technical and engineering services.

Wood Fiber Group is the largest supplier of cutting tools, filing room equipment, and critical consumable products to the wood products industry, serving the North American market with well-known brands including Simonds International, Burton Saw & Supply, BGR Saws, Global Tooling, and U.S. Blades.

This merger will create a single company with a vast product range, capable of delivering complete solutions from project conception, to building/installing processing lines, to supplying the spare parts, technical services, ancillary equipment, and custom-engineered cutting tools that their customers rely on to operate their mills at peak performance.

The complementary nature of the two businesses presents the opportunity to offer new products and services to customers – enabling a ‘win’ for the Wood Fiber Group, a ‘win’ for USNR, and a ‘win’ for their customers.
