ASHLAND, Maine (AP) — Seven Islands Land Co. says it has acquired MooseWood Premium Hardwood Flooring from Kelly Lumber Sales Inc. of Ashland.

Seven Islands, a family-owned forest and timber management company in Bangor, says it intends to keep MooseWood’s current workforce of 16 employees while investing in operations and strengthening distribution of the premium hardwood flooring.

Lumber used in the production of MooseWood flooring is harvested from land managed by Seven Islands and milled by Maine Woods Co. in Portage Lake.

Seven Islands President John McNulty says the acquisition of MooseWood brings a value-added component to its timber resources and supports jobs in the heart of Maine’s northern forest.

MooseWood Premium Hardwood Flooring was established in 2004.
