Wilton Brothers


Owners John and Dean Wilton grew up in Oregon. John was first to enter the lumber industry with Georgia Pacific Corporation in the early 70s. After several years, he moved to Morgan Hill, California and became General Manager of Redwood Empire, Inc. He convinced his younger brother Dean that California was the place to be and redwood lumber was the thing to do. The two brothers began Forest Products in Gilroy in December 1978. Their commitment to quality lumber and service along with their integrity of pricing has earned them a reputation in the South Bay area to be envied. The relationships John and Dean have built with their customers have brought them repeated business. In many instances, their customer's children have become grown and are now conducting business with Forest Products because of the relationship that has developed over the years.
