SWOT ANALYSIS ON Boise Cascade Holdings - November 29th, 2010

Boise Cascade Holdings, LLC, which uses the trade name Boise, is an American pulp and paper company, ranked as the thirteenth largest forest products company in the world. It is composed of the assets sold off when the publicly-traded Boise Cascade Corporation renamed itself OfficeMax Inc. (after acquiring the company of the same name in 2003).

Boise Cascade Corporation, was established in 1957 as the result of the merger between Boise-Payette Lumber Company of Boise and the Cascade Lumber Company of Yakima, Washington.

Boise-Payette was established in 1913 from a merger of the Payette Lumber & Manufacturing Company and Barber Lumber, a Wisconsin company with operations in the Boise Basin. Payette Lumber, a Minnesota firm, acquired 33,000 acres (130 km) of state timber in Idaho's Long Valley near present-day Cascade in 1902. To control the passage of logs downstream, the company built a large splash dam below Smith's Ferry on the North Fork of the Payette River. Logs were sent downstream to sawmills in the town of Payette.

In the 1960s, Boise Cascade acquired a majority interest in the Cuban Electric Co., the primary electric utility in pre-Castro Cuba.
