Würth Baer Supply acquires Russell Plywood

VERNON HILLS, Ill. — Würth Baer Supply Company has acquired Russell Plywood, headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, with an additional site in Wilmington, Delaware.

The company said that the addition of Russell Plywood geographically expands Würth’s core woodworking business in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey, and continues to solidify Würth’s position as a “hassle-free, one-stop source for residential and commercial woodworking customers.”

Both sites will continue to be managed by existing general, sales and operations management.

Würth Baer Supply Company CEO John Geraghty commented: “The Würth organization is extremely pleased to add Russell Plywood to our expanding portfolio of woodworking companies. Russell Plywood has been in business since 1953 and they have a meaningful reputation in the Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey markets. They provide the market with excellent service and innovatively engineered products. We welcome Russ DiGiallorenzo and Russell Plywood’s committed employees to the Würth family and look forward to expanding the Würth brand with Russell Plywood in the future. Russell Plywood will retain its strong brand name in the market and will run as a division of Würth Baer Supply Company.”

The acquisition was completed on January 31, 2024, and officially announced in February.
