A leading diversified wood products company, West Fraser is one of North America’s largest lumber manufacturers with 45 facilities in British Columbia, Alberta, and the southern U.S. We’re an established leader in sustainable forestry, high-efficiency wood product production, and innovation in manufacturing.


West Fraser’s primary products are lumber (spruce, pine and fir — “SPF”) and southern yellow pine (“SYP”).

The company also produces:

  • panels (plywood, MDF)
  • engineered wood products (LVL)
  • pulp & paper (NBSK and BCTMP)
  • newsprint

Our operations in western Canada manufacture all the company’s products, except southern yellow pine lumber. Our mills in the southern United States produce SYP lumber and wood chips.
