The RFL Group began doing business as a wholesaler of premium quality forest products in April of 1982. Incorporated under the name of Rain Forest Lumber Company, the lumber sold at that time was primarily manufactured in the temperate rain forest region of the Pacific Northwest. RFL’s initial focus was on the wholesaling of Western Red Cedar lumber products.
A successful wholesale lumber company is built on the experience and education of its people. The sales staff of RFL combines nearly two centuries of knowledge in the forest products industry into one entity. RFL supplies its customers with premium quality products at world class values. The company takes pride in its history of introducing new products, services and technologies to the forest products marketplace. Offered in conjunction with innovative methods of logistics and distribution, our commitment to quality products and top notch service is what separates RFL from the competition.
