UFP Industries, Inc. (UFP) reported record net sales of $2.7 billion for the second quarter of 2021, a 117% increase over second quarter 2020 net sales of $1.24 billion.

Retail sales at UFP soared 107% to $1.26 billion due to a 59% increase in selling prices and a 48% unit increase due to the acquisitions of Sunbelt Forest Products and Spartanburg Forest Products. Organic unit sales fell 4 percent due to a 17% decline in the ProWood business unit. 

Organic growth was achieved by UFP-Edge (up 27%), Deckorators (up 11%), and Outdoor Essentials (up 6%) due in part to expanded operational capacity. Additional capacity for each of these product lines is expected to come online in 2022, UFP said.
