"DO THINGS RIGHT, AND DO THE RIGHT THING"
Trust. Knowledge. Experience.
At RIFP, we measure our success by that of our partners.
For more than 30 years Richmond International Forest Products (RIFP), a subsidiary of Forest City Trading Group, has grown the scope of its panel and lumber wholesale business while staying true to the tenets of trustworthiness and dependability that it's been known for since the beginning. What began in 1982 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, the company 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.
The RIFP team brings decades of experience to all aspects of the trading process and each division maintains a specialized focus that offers clients up-to-the-minute market information and superior pricing. Delivering on promises is top priority for everyone at RIFP and reinvesting in the environment is equally critical. The company participates in reforestation efforts and supports eco-friendly mills and sustainable products.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Since my career with Richmond International Forest Products (RIFP) began in 1989, our company has transformed from a small southern pine trading company to a diverse multi-product global business. The company has followed a steady pathway of growth that is rooted in strong customer relationships, reliability and exemplary work ethics that result in the needs of customers being met and exceeded time and again.
I see our future as brighter than ever, and we will continue to move forward with more than 30 years of experience and expertise to guide the way, to expand our global footprint and to provide the information and products our customers need to grow their businesses. At RIFP, we measure our success by that of our partners.
