Growth Strategy

Our disciplined operating focus in our facilities and cost-conscious manufacturing approach are crucial to the continuing success of West Fraser.

We have a consistent and reliable business model that is based in efficiency and unwavering attention to cost management. We consistently reinvest in our operations to ensure our committed and dedicated staff have the right resources to compete and win in a challenging industry.

Over the last ten years, West Fraser has grown outside of the Company’s original base in British Columbia, increasing our manufacturing capabilities in Alberta and the southern United States. Today we are the largest lumber manufacturer in Alberta and one of the largest in the U.S. South. By pursuing this strategy, we are creating new platforms for growth in many of the areas where we operate and in regions with stable or growing timber supply.

At West Fraser, our employees continue to be our key competitive advantage. They contribute to a strong, resourceful, cost-conscious culture that continues to drive our success. Through their ongoing support and commitment, we continue to build a strong and profitable Company.
