Company History

Sam, Bill and Pete Ketcham were young men who took a chance on a purchase of a small mill in the Town of Quesnel and showed business vision beyond their years.

The sweat and hard work of three young men together with a founding group of pioneering employees have laid a foundation for West Fraser that thrives to this day. Six decades later, the Company has grown from the original 12-person crew at Two Mile Flat to become the largest lumber producer in North America.

West Fraser’s heritage is a story about people who came together to build so much more than those three young men imagined would be possible in 1955. Today, we remain anchored by those early core beliefs that continue to stand the test of time: cost control in all aspects of the business; efficient, modern mills; responsibility and leadership in environmental performance; the active involvement of employees in the business and a relentless pursuit of excellence in everything we do.

Company Facts

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.
