Tenryu Canada, which was established in 1969 as the representative office of Tenryu Lumber Company Limited in Vancouver and then incorporated as Tenryu Canada Corporation in 1974, boasts a proud history of more than forty years in Canada. Its parent company, Tenryu Lumber Company Ltd, which was founded in 1907, has a history that goes back more than a century. The company was born out of the tree planting efforts of its founder, Meizen Kimpara, who had been labouring to promote flood control along the Tenryu River. Currently Tenryu Lumber Company Ltd continues to operate and manage its company-owned forests while contributing to the conservation of the local environment. As a building materials manufacturer, it produces high-quality flooring and wall materials for large facilities, schools, public institutions, as well as houses. Following in the footsteps of our parent company, Tenryu Canada Corporation plants, fosters, makes use of and protects our forests. While faithfully following the consistent policies laid out by Tenryu Lumber since its founding in 1907, Tenryu Canada offers quality wood products that meet the needs of our times
Tenryu Canada Corporation purchases its lumber and logs directly from various large and small forest companies in British Columbia, Canada. British Columbia is one of the world's richest regions in terms of natural resources, and in order to properly manage and conserve these resources British Columbia has some of the most rigorous environmental and forestry conservation provisions in place anywhere in the world. Tenryu Canada Corporation ships high-quality British Columbia lumber to customers all over the world from Vancouver, North America's west coast's largest international trading port. In addition, we also provide lumber that is custom cut to our client's requirements. Thanks to our convenient location on the west coast of Canada and our port's reliable transportation system, Tenryu Canada Corporation can ship efficiently and with great cost-effectiveness to major markets all over the world. This integrated transport system helps to reduce the costs of not only natural resource development but also shipping costs to other points in North America and all over the world. The Port of Vancouver has four container terminals. In addition to on-dock rail service that can deliver goods directly to each terminal, it is the only port in both Americas equipped with a quad lift crane. This crane system is capable of lifting four 20-foot containers or two 40-foot containers at the same time. This system, therefore, can increase container-handling capacity by up to 40%.
