Lumber Company Deal Completed
December 15th, 1944

On December 1 the Fruit Growers Supply Company of Los Angeles became owners of the town and plant facilities of the Red Rock Lumber company, located at Westwood, adding materially to its timber reserve.

“This is one step in a program for replenishing depleted timber reserves in order to provide continued assurance of a supply of boxes at reasonable costs when needed by members.” Said P.E. Simpson, general manager of Fruit Growers Supply Company.

“The increased production of citrus fruit in recent years, combined with heavier than normal drain on supply company timber reserves during the war years, has resulted in the necessity of the acquisitions.”
