Since 1954, Florida Forest has seen many changes in the building industry. Florida Forest Products originally got its humble start as a wood pulp brokerage in Tallahassee, FL. Since then, Florida Forest has undergone many changes and seen different locations in Florida until the company made its home in the Tampa Bay Area.
In 1969 Florida Forest Products made its debut in the building material supply industry by first marketing Gypsum wallboard. By 1972 Florida Forest Products saw significant growth in the industry and opened outlets in Tampa, Port Richey, and Jacksonville.
In 1976 Florida Forest Products seized the opportunity to move into the lumber business. To make room for the expansion into the lumber business it was necessary for Florida Forest Products to close some of the outlets. The growing demand for lumber also sparked the need for engineered trusses. So, in 1980 Florida Forest Products purchased the land necessary across from the lumberyard to start a truss plant. By 1988 Florida Forest Products became a full service lumber, millwork & truss manufacturer primarily to the Pinellas & Hillsborough county markets.
In 1996 Florida Forest Products sold the Millwork & Lumber portion of the company and concentrated solely on truss design, manufacturing, and delivery of Engineered Floor and Roof Trusses & Engineered Wood products.
It was this change that was the turning point for Florida Forest Products and its valued customers. The company found its niche in the building material industry. Florida Forest Products caters to not only the larger contractor but to the smaller homeowner builder customer as well. Florida Forest Products has always maintained the same quality product that the company was founded on. We take a lot of pride in our Customer Service design & craftsmanship that has made Florida Forest Products a respected part of the truss manufacturing industry.
Today, Florida Forest Products serves the demands of an expanding Greater Tampa Bay Area. Florida Forest Products takes great pride in serving the additional counties of Pasco, Manatee, Hernando, and Sarasota.
