April 7, 2020 – Kamps Pallets has announced the finalization of its acquisition of D&H Bark, out of Manton, MI. This location will be an addition to Kamps’ Wood Resource Division (WRD) and will become the division’s sixth location in Michigan.
D&H Bark is a company that has been in business for over 30 years, specializing in a wide array of wood products that include: hardwood, red pine, and cedar barks, animal bedding, colored mulches, and landscape chips.
Kamps comments that it is extremely happy about the timing of the acquisition. It comes at an optimal time, as the company looks to build upon the national success and growth of its pallet and recycling operations.
“Long-standing, family-owned company with a clear focus on quality of product and delivering top-notch service,” commented Mitchell Kamps, President of Kamps Inc., regarding the acquisition. “This aligns with our company’s principles and goals we expect to deliver to our customers each day. Also, our businesses help complement all aspects of our current supply chain.”
Kamps stated that the new location will allow it to better serve existing customers in Michigan, grow the customer base, and produce bark and mulch at a higher volume. Due to its vast network in the region, more customers in Michigan will also be able to benefit from D&H Bark’s 12-acre yard and operations.
D&H Bark’s original owners will be staying on board for the busy season to ensure a smooth transition, and the management team will continue to run the day-to-day operations. Kamps Wood Resource division leadership will assume the responsibilities of the new location. “We are looking forward to having the D&H team join our Kamps Family,” says Ed Bulthuis, General Manager of Kamps Wood Resource division.
