Skana Forest Products Ltd. was incorporated by Chris Beveridge in 1987. Through the years we have enjoyed creating a successful company selling into the North American markets as Lumber Wholesalers of SPF, Douglas fir, Pine, Plywood and Western Red Cedar. We are also remanufacturers with several facilities producing a wide range of products. Our traders are open to trading all species; however each has their own specialties as mentioned on The Team page.

In 2021, Kent Beveridge took on the role of President of Skana Forest Products Ltd.  and is responsible for all operating aspects of the company.

Chris Beveridge assumes the role of Chief Executive Officer and continues to be actively involved in the company, providing advice and guidance.
