Company History

Millar Western is a privately held Canadian forest products company that has been in business for more than a century. Founded by J.W. Millar in the early 1900s, the company established its Alberta forestry operations in the 1920s, opening its first sawmill in Whitecourt in 1926. In the late 1980s, the company diversified into the pulp business and was instrumental in developing markets for hardwood and softwood bleached chemi-thermo-mechanical pulps, which were little known at the time but are now widely used in a variety of paper applications around the world. In 2007, Millar Western added the Fox Creek sawmill to its family of operations. The mill was lost to fire the following year but was rebuilt and reopened in 2011. In 2017, Millar Western began operation of an innovative project that uses anaerobic hybrid technology to convert pulp-mill waste streams to bioenergy, which is used to offset fossil-fuel consumption at the pulp mill. In 2018, Millar Western acquired Spruceland Millworks, which produces value-added products such as fencing and decking at its lumber re-manufacturing plant at Acheson. Headquartered in Edmonton, Millar Western today produces pulp, lumber, specialty wood products, and bioenergy at its advanced manufacturing facilities in Whitecourt, Fox Creek and Acheson. Guided by our core values of safety, integrity, honesty, trust and respect, we are committed to developing renewable resources safely and responsibly.
