Our Story

Kermode Forest Products is a manufacturer and re-manufacturer of high quality softwood lumber products. We supply lumber in rough, dry and semi-finished forms to a range of international factories, millshops, and lumber yards. We are also a lumber retailer, offering decking, fencing, siding, lumber and timber materials at wholesale prices to the public. We operate a remanufacturing plant in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada allowing us to maintain a high level of quality control.

Our log and lumber supply comes primarily from the forests of beautiful British Columbia, where forest management laws are some of the most comprehensive in the world, with primary concern for our environment and sustainability.

The Spirit Bear

The Kermode Bear lives in the heart of the famous great bear rain forest on B.C.’s central coast region.

This spirit bear is a rare creature, symbolizing pristine wilderness conservation, sustainability, and uniqueness. It is with this spirit of the Great Kermode Bear that we at Kermode Forest Products conduct our business. Our concern for environmental sustainability and the quality of products is carefully measured with our relationships with our business friends, customers, and suppliers.

Our Mission is to provide individuals across the globe with reliable, sustainable, and quality softwood products sourced directly from the beautiful forests of British Columbia.

It is our vision that through this work we will be seen as a living example of what is possible with regards to the actions of society and the well-being of the planet.
