Nation’s Best has announced the addition of Forslund Building Supply, serving the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin, to its family of businesses.

“As a dominate player in a rural market, Forslund Building Supply couldn’t be a better fit for the Nation’s Best family,” said Chris Miller, president & CEO of Nation’s Best. “As we continue to expand our presence across the country, the UP is an appealing area with tremendous growth opportunities. Through three generations, Forslund Building Supply has established a strong brand and an even stronger reputation for serving their communities in Michigan and Wisconsin.”

“We proudly trace our history back to our founding in 1950,” said owner Gus Forslund. “And with Nation’s Best at our side, I know we’ll be able to take our business to the next level, serving our customers even better. There’s also tremendous potential for us to expand the Forslund brand in our market and I’m proud to be able to be a part of this next step in our company’s history.”

As part of Nation’s Best’s strategy, Forslund Building Supply will maintain operations under their existing name with its key leadership team overseeing company operations alongside Nation’s Best, which will provide the strategic and financial support necessary to drive optimal growth and profitability.
