J Lawrence-Based Jackson Lumber & Millwork Acquires E.G. Barker Lumber of Wobum We are pleased to announce that, effective August 7, 2017, Jackson Lumber & Millwork has acquired E.G. Barker Lumber of Woburn, MA. Headquartered in Lawrence, MA, with addi- tional locations in Amesbury, MA, North Andover, MA, and Raymond, NH, Jackson Lumber & MiU- work has been owned and operated by the Torrisi family since 1946. Over the years, the company has grown significantly and now serves Greater Boston, the North Shore, and Southern New Hampshire as well as the Merrimack Valley area. Well-respected for offering quality materials, excellent customer service, and for technological advancements, Jackson Lumber & Millwork was named Nationai Dealer of the Year by ProSales Magazine in 2014, making Jackson the first New England dealer to receive this honor. The acquisition of E. G. Barker Lumber, with its close proximity to Route 93, will allow Jack- son Lumber & Millwork to better serve their greater Boston customer base. Continuously operating since 1887, E.G. Barker is well-known and respected in Woburn and surrounding com- munities. "After 39 years of dedicating my working life to Barker," said John Denison, "I have decided to sell the business and property to Jackson Lum- ber and Millwork. I considered other options, but I know that this is the best option for our Barker customers, our employees, and myself. Our acquisition by Jackson will increase opportuni- ties for both our customers and our employees." Mark Torrisi, president of Jackson Lumber & Millwork with John Denison, president of E.G. Barker Lumber Mark Torrisi, president of Jackson Lumber & Millwork remarked, "It has been a goal of ours for many years to have a location closer to Boston that would allow us to better serve our many customers in Greater Boston. After carefully exploring our options, we determined that acquiring E.G. Barker Lumber would be the best solution for our needs. We are excited about working with the E.G. Barker Lumber staff and leadership as we transition Barker to our Jackson Lumber & Millwork business model, and we look forward to providing all Barker customers with the best possible service and value."
