Timber Creek Resource Acquisition Expands Historic Manufacturing Operation

hinged corner crate Timber Creek Resource acquired a piece of local Wausau history in its 2017 purchase of MBX Packaging Specialists and has now rebranded both Wausau and Beloit operations under its own name.

Timber Creek Resource specializes in the design and construction of custom industrial packaging, so the Beloit and Wausau plants, which have deep roots in Wisconsin’s lumber and industrial crating industry since 1892, are a natural fit. With its own fleet of trucks, multi-state lumber shipping capabilities, and extensive product lines, Timber Creek Resource is one of the largest lumber wholesalers and custom crating operations in the Midwest. This provides the Beloit and Wausau operations with greater resources and shipping capabilities than before. Timber Creek Resource will benefit from increased capacity and reach, the addition of the collapsible metal tab corner crate to their product offerings, and the expertise of experienced staff.

Timber Creek Resource Sales Manager, Ryan Ziegler, had this to say about the acquisition and Wisconsin manufacturing:

The people in Wausau and Beloit have been great to work with, and we’re happy to officially welcome them into the Timber Creek family. We are always looking to grow in smart ways to better service our customers, and these locations increase our capacity and reach.  The synergy of these operations coming together is good for Wisconsin and good for the industry as a whole.
