The last 30 years have been a whirlwind of determination, heart, and triumph here at the UCS Forest Group of Companies. Upper Canada Forest Products in Canada, Sierra Forest Products in the US as well as A&M Wood Specialty, have combined to become a leader in the industry.
As our 30th anniversary is upon us, we look forward to continuing to expand our markets, to explore new product opportunities for our customers, to share our success with those in need in our communities, and of course, to continue to Deliver the Difference to all within the UCS family. At this milestone we take the opportunity to acknowledge our past and the great trailblazers who have led us here: Warren Spitz, Maureen Spitz, and Andrea Moore, and soon after, Mark Mah. Without their strength and perseverance this company would not be what it is today.
To say UCS Forest Group has been a great success would understate the accomplishments of the last three decades. By creating a company with compelling core values focused on the customer, UCS Forest Group has blossomed into a company that not only provides quality wood products, but goes further by providing the epitome of customer service. When Warren conceived of this business, he had the vision of providing customers with more than just a “supplier”, he wanted to create a connection between supplier and customer and establish a relationship that went further than a financial transaction. That is why, right from the start, Warren established company values that were true to him: Professionalism, Integrity, Commitment and Innovation. These, combined with our quality products, makes UCS a cut above the rest.
On May 26th, 1986 the first division was created: Upper Canada Forest Products Toronto officially started. Though at that time, the company was just one truck; a 10,000 sq ft warehouse; and Andrea, Warren and Maureen. Despite the fact that the group was small, we made up for our size in dedication and determination. By keeping the values of the company true, we were able to expand the UCS family to 14 locations, while retaining the familial culture. Warren is known for his empathy and compassion, and this permeates into employee life, when you’re working at UCS Forest Group it truly feels as though you’re part of a family.
Here at UCS we embrace all customers, large and small. We know what it’s like to start from small roots, every company no matter the size started the same way....with an idea and a dream.
Regardless of your product needs, we are here to deliver: what you need, when you need it, by people that know and care. Every customer experiences our values, that is how we Deliver the Difference.
