Today, we announced the completion of Canfor’s purchase of Wynndel Box and Lumber. Also known as WynnWood, the company is located in Wynndel, which is near Creston in southern British Columbia, an area known for its exceptional fibre.
Over the 100-year history of the company, WynnWood has grown to nearly 100 employees and has established a reputation for quality, including unmatched fibre, excellent drying and superior moulded finish.
The specialty products from this operation, when combined with Canfor’s strong and secure supply of Canfor RED premium quality fibre in the region, will form an integral part of Canfor’s growing specialty products business.
I’m very pleased to be further diversifying Canfor’s product mix, and adding truly outstanding products to our offering. I also know that a great team of committed employees is behind this great operation and I am happy to welcome all of them to the Canfor team.
