EACOM Timber Corporation is a major Eastern Canadian wood products company formed in 2008. Its head office is located in Montreal, Quebec, with regional offices located in Timmins, Ontario and Val-d’Or, Quebec. In 2010, EACOM acquired Domtar Forest Products Division. As a result, its operations include the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of lumber and wood-based value-added products, and the management of forest resources.
EACOM currently owns seven sawmills (5 in Ontario, 2 in Quebec), a remanufacturing facility (Quebec) and an engineered I-joists plant (Ontario) for a total of more than 1100 employees. Many of these mills have a long, rich history having been part of their communities for over 100 years.
EACOM has a production capacity of approximately 900 million board feet of lumber and holds Crown logging rights of approximately 3.5 million cubic meters annually.
The Company is committed to investing in strong assets, including healthy forests, advanced technology and talented people.
EACOM is a responsible forest manager adhering to the best sustainable forest management practices, respecting federal and provincial laws, and ensuring third-party certification of the forests we manage.
Because we manufacture lumber, access to abundant, affordable and secure sources of fibre is critical to our future.
We share these resources with many other stakeholders, some of which may hold different forest values. As a result, we strive to work cooperatively with those who have a stake in the forest and to conserve the forest for future generations by contributing to the development of ecologically meaningful protected areas and by adopting responsible forest management practices.
Our dedicated team of foresters and certification professionals ensure that the forest resource is responsibly managed and that our forest practices maintain a balance of forest values, including water and soil quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and biodiversity, as well as community and recreational opportunities.
In addition, EACOM’s forest resources are third-party certified to the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) standard.
EACOM manufactures dimensional lumber and studs used in wood-frame construction, including residential, commercial and public buildings. We manufacturer it in a variety of sizes for use in wall framing, flooring systems, roof trusses, exterior applications and as part of engineered wood systems including our own Power Joist® — engineered I-joists .
EACOM also manufactures specialty and industrial products including bed frames. And in an effort to reduce our waste and maximize the use of every tree we harvest, we produce co-products including bark, wood chips and sawdust, that are used in applications such as energy, pulp and paper, and engineered wood products.
