In 2016, Canfor completed a purchase agreement with Wynndel Box and Lumber Ltd.
This agreement brings together these exceptional companies that share many values, including a reputation for safety, quality and customer service. They were all founded by families and have traditions, histories and connections that go back for generations. Wynndel Box and Lumber produces premium boards and customized specialty wood products sold under the brand name WynnWood. It has access to exceptionally high-quality fibre, and will advance Canfor’s ability to produce a broader mix of higher value specialty products.
Canfor is one of the largest forest products companies in the world, with 6,500 employees. Its headquarters are in Vancouver, British Columbia, and its operations in Canada and the southern United States produce quality lumber, pulp and paper products and energy. Wynndel is a highly successful company, with excellent management, skilled employees, and a strong network of dealers and suppliers.
Canfor and Wynndel have established collaborative teams so they can move smoothly to an integrated operating model. This will ensure local strengths and traditions are respected while the companies come together to meet the growing demand for high-quality products from customers in North America and around the world.
