This acquisition furthers our strategy to expand our millwork business. We are excited to bring this outstanding team on board."

Charlie Smith, president & CEO of Brosco, emphasized that the merger with Boise Cascade aligns with Brosco's culture and commitment to customers and associates. Smith noted, "Boise Cascade is a large and successful organization that will allow all our customers the ability to continue to enjoy the outstanding Brosco products and service that have been the standard of the Northeast millwork market for over 130 years."

The acquisition marks a significant step in Boise Cascade's strategic plan to reinforce its position in the millwork sector and expand its offerings to a wider customer base.
