Dakota Rustic Collection was once a conceptual dream for two salesman
at Forrest Products Distributors in Rapid City, SD located in the
beautiful Black Hills. Cody and Todd were looking for a product to
take to market that would meet the needs of today’s growing popularity
of building accent walls, rustic furniture and crafts. They spent
countless hours over the past year with the design and development
stage to bring the product alive.
The end goal was to develop an affordable product for the masses
without cutting corners on quality. With the full support of ownership
they got to work utilizing existing equipment at FPD’s remanufacturing
plant and building additional equipment to assist with the efficiency
of production. There were several hurdles that presented themselves
along the way, but we are proud to reach the finish line and bring the
final product to market.
