Our Roots

Our story is rooted in one man’s belief that it was time for a different kind of lumber company –one that delivered the service, professionalism and transparency that customers deserve.

In 1986, Warren Spitz started UCS Forest Group with a goal of delivering this difference. Through a balanced operating approach, careful planning and an unwavering focus on building strong relationships with customers and suppliers, UCS has grown steadily over the last 30 years. Today, it is North America’s premier distributor and importer of high quality hardwood and softwood lumber, composite panels, plywood, specialty wood and decorative surfaces.

Environmental Responsibility

When it comes to our commitment to the environment, actions truly speak louder than words. We source woodworking materials that are FSC® certified, ECC, CARB and LEED compliant, and our products have won several environmental awards. Our buildings and hybrid cars are powered by Bullfrog Power and we use smart innovations, such as proximity lighting and electric forklifts, to further reduce our energy use.



We’re a company with heart. Over the years, we’ve given generously to numerous charities and causes, including Plan International, American and Canadian Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Education Africa, and the Hospital for Sick Children. Through the Spitz Fellows Program, we help Aboriginal women pursue a business education.
