Hancock Lumber of Casco said Monday that it has acquired Mainely Trusses, a roof and floor truss manufacturer based in Fairfield. The acquisition will add a new product line to Hancock’s manufacturing portfolio, the company said.

The addition of Mainely Trusses makes Hancock Lumber the first retailer in Maine to own and operate its own roof and floor truss manufacturing facility, the company said in a news release. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“When the opportunity to acquire Mainely Trusses materialized, we recognized quickly that it would be a good long-term move that strengthened both companies,” Kevin Hancock, president and CEO of Hancock Lumber, said in a prepared statement announcing the deal.

Hancock Lumber began milling logs into lumber in 1848, and it continues today with three Eastern white pine sawmills and a wall panel manufacturing facility. Adding engineered truss systems to its manufacturing portfolio offers another product line for its customers in Maine and New Hampshire, the company said.
