CanWel Building Materials Group Ltd. (“CanWel”) has completed the acquisition of the business of Total Forest Industries (“TFI”), a lumber pressure treating plant in Hagersville, Ontario. The acquisition solidifies CanWel’s presence in Ontario, complementing its treating facilities in Cambridge and Combermere. TFI’s manufacturing operations are housed on a 40,000 sq. ft. site with a fully automated process control system, where finished wood products are stored in a 15-acre compound and available for direct shipment.
TFI has been in operation since 1988 and will deepen CanWel’s reach and capacity to service its customers. CanWel now owns ten treating plants in North America. CanWel’s assets also include several post and pole peeling facilities, two planer facilities and 16 distribution centres strategically located across Canada, as well as near San Francisco, California. In addition, CanWel owns approximately 136,000 acres of private timberlands in Western Canada, anchoring the CanWel footprint.
Founded in 1989, CanWel is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia and is Canada’s only fully integrated national distributor in the building materials and related products sector.
