A Dream Made Good
IFG built on a solid timber legacy
Idaho Forest Group’s success has grown from humble beginnings. In 1934, Guy Bennett began his lumber career in the charcoal briquette division of Potlatch Mill. With his sons Dick and Frank, and daughter Janice, he built a significant presence. Dick would leave to form Bennett Forest Industries. The Brinkmeyer family has a farming and timber heritage of their own, beginning in the Old World and culminating in Riley Creek Lumber. In 2008, these two industry powerhouses merged to become Idaho Forest Group. The company continues to expand in facilities and market share, and is now one of America’s top producers of wood products.
