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 started full-time at the company in 1970, semi-retiring January 2015. Gus Forslund, the third generation, started with the company full time in 2005 and took over as President in 2015.  In 1974, the company was incorporated under Forslund Building Supply, Inc.  The Iron River/Caspian store was started in 1996.  In 2001, we moved the Iron River store to a 12,000 square foot store in Caspian, MI.  The Ironwood location is a Do-It Center and Caspian is a Do-It-Best Store.  Both stores service an approximate 60 mile radius.  We are proud of continuing our business relationships with our customers and vendors for over 65 years.
