Boise Cascade Corporation

When two lumber companies, Boise-Payette Lumber Company and Cascade Lumber Company merged in 1957, Boise Cascade was formed. Quickly after its start, the company expanded its operations to engineering, real estate and construction. It went even further than that, buying in 1968 an important share of Cuba’s biggest electric company. Changing its leadership in 1974, Boise Cascade came to operate in three main branches: building products, paper and office products distribution. In recent years, the company kept its divisions of wood products and building materials becoming one of the largest companies regarding forest products. Some of Boise Cascade’s products that were meant to be sold as insulation were manufactured with the asbestos. This happened until the late 1970’s, early 1980’s when the company decided to put a stop to this dangerous practice.
