Mirax Group to Acquire Lyle Forest Products in Chilliwack, BC
Mirax Group announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Lyle Forest Products (“Lyle”) located in Chilliwack, BC.
Established in 1972, Lyle Forest Products is a premier value-added lumber facility dealing with Pacific Coast Hemlock and Western Red Cedar. For the past 50 years Lyle has been producing only the highest quality of paneling, moulding’s, S4S finishing boards, and engineered wood products. Lyle’s reputation for premium value-added products has been well known to the industry, worldwide.
This acquisition is one step closer for Mirax Group to become a more vertically integrated forest company in British Columbia. With the addition of Lyle to our family of companies, this is consistent with our value-added business model to further enhance and diversify investment locally in BC and produce high quality finished products ready to be shipped globally. The new operation will be run as Lyle Specialty Forest Products Ltd., where our sister-company Jazz Forest Products will be the sole distributer for Lyle products. Jas Binning, CEO of Mirax Group says, “We are excited to welcome Lyle’s employees to the Mirax Group. The addition of Lyle Forest Products is a perfect synergy for our organization to further add value to our growing product base, and keeping forestry and manufacturing alive here in our province. I would further like to thank Bob Lester for his over 50 years of service in the lumber industry and wish him a happy retirement.”
The completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and is expected to close in the ending of February 2023.
