Like many other businesses in the lumber industry we started small and worked with family. In the mid 1980’s we started repairing pallets for local clients. Over time we made our way into the manufacturing of new pallets. Our business growth relied heavily on making and delivering pallets on time.
In 1997 we shifted our focus away from the local pallet industry and set our sights on the pallet cut-stock market. We established North American Forest Products in 1998 and began providing pallet manufacturers all over the US and Canada with pre-cut pallet components. We have maintained our efforts to provide on-time deliveries which has allowed our company to grow year after year.
Today, we continue to manufacture pallet stock but have also developed product lines to serve fencing, crate, and agricultural stake markets.
Our primary manufacturing facility and head office is located in Abbotsford, B.C. We are situated about five minutes from the US border, within 10km of CN and CP rail, and an hour from the Port of Vancouver. We have the capabilities to ship our products anywhere in the world.
With 6 acres of pavement and 45,000 square feet of building and warehouse space we have the ability to store over 10 million board feet of lumber in our yard.
We load vans on one of three at-grade loading docks. Before leaving the yard every shipment is screened for quality and accuracy. Each truck is scaled to ensure that we have loaded as much material as possible while still keeping legal truck weights.
