Mid-State Lumber’s ownership group, including Ken Bernstein, David Bernstein and Gary Bernstein, added: “Since our father Bernie Bernstein founded Mid-State Lumber in 1972, we have built a business based on family values and the simple desire to bring great products to great customers adding value through great service and relationships. This partnership provides an opportunity to build on Mid-State’s impressive legacy and provides a foundation for the long-term success of our employees, customers and vendors. We are excited and energized by the opportunity to work with U.S. Lumber as they continue to grow and have an impact on the industry that has supported our family for so long.”
