At Richmond International Forest Products, we are committed to building upon our strong relationships with both our customers and our saw mills. This allows us to proudly provide the best combination of price and quality to the end user of the lumber that we trade. Whether it is Spruce, OSB, Douglas Fir, Plywood, Import, or even our veteran Southern Yellow Pine, our team of industry leaders and professionals are here for your needs with both top notch customer service, and providing solutions in mind. 

Southern Yellow Pine

Used in various applications from Truss, Construction (framing), Industrial and Treated Lumber. We supply all grades and customer bases for your needs.

Naturally found in cooler regions, these trees are very adaptable and can naturally be found closer toward the Pacific coast. 

An engineered wood from the family of manufactured boards, it is made of piles of wood veneer that are glued together with adjacent layers.  

Imported Plywood

Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is an engineered wood panel that can be used for wall and roof sheathing as well as flooring.

We believe in developing long run partnerships by helping connect the dots between global suppliers and our North American customer base.  Our team takes great pride in responsibly sourcing sustainable and environmentally friendly wood products from dozens of countries all over the world.

Douglas Fir

From industrial uses such as boxes and crates, to decorative applications such as trim and molding, we're here to help. 

Fir Plywood

Since 1982, what began as a small office devoted to Southern Yellow Pine transactions has matured into an international operation with an extensive menu of products as well as in-house logistical support and transportation solutions. Today, Richmond International Forest Products (RIFP), a subsidiary of Forest City Trading Group, is a company that serves a diversified customer base. From industrial accounts to furniture makers to import/export companies that rely on the value, quality of product and seamless transactions that RIFP delivers. We are proud to call the residential construction industry, covering the gamut of multi-family and single family construction, our core business. We have grown the scope of our panel and lumber wholesale business while staying true to the tenets of trustworthiness and dependability that we have been known for since the beginning. 

At Richmond International, our team brings decades of experience to all aspects of the trading process, and each division maintains a specialized focus that offers our clients up-to-the-minute market information and superior pricing. Delivering on promises is the top priority for everyone at RIFP, and reinvesting in the environment is equally as critical. Our company participates in reforestation efforts and supports eco-friendly mills and sustainable products.



Forest City Trading Group

When Richmond International Forest Products first opened our doors in 1982, we were a small southern pine trading company. Now a handful of decades later, we are proud to say that we have grown into a diverse multi-product global business that only keeps growing and expanding. Our company’s growth is rooted in our strong customer relationships, reliability and exemplary work ethics that result in the needs of customers being met and exceeded time and again.

As we move forward to whatever the future holds, at RIFP we know it is bright entirely because of our team and the support they give each other. We measure our success by that of our partners and believe that when they succeed, we succeed.
