Carl and Lillian Forslund started our company in Ironwood, MI in 1950 as a sawmill with a small retail sales office. In 1962, a new office and warehouse were built at the present Ironwood location. Many expansions were added over the years at the Ironwood location. Paul Forslund, the current president, started full-time at the company in 1970. In 1974, the company was incorporated under Forslund Building Supply, Inc. New locations have been added throughout the years: Ashland, WI in 1985, Land O’ Lakes, WI in 1990, and Iron River, MI in 1996. In April 2001, we moved our Iron River store to a 12,000 ft. store in Caspian, MI. The Ironwood location is a Do-It Center, Land O’ Lakes is a Do-It-Best Store, and Caspian is a Do-It-Best Store.  In 2009 Ashland moved locations once again and downsized to a sales office.  We are proud of continuing our business relationships with our customers and vendors for over 60 years.
