Lakeland Mills Ltd.

 

Company Info

Founded in Prince George, British Columbia in 1962, Lakeland Mills Ltd. was purchased in 1973 by three long-time local residents, Ivan Andersen, Bob Stewart and George Killy. The trio operated the company until 1995, when Mr. Killy sold his interest in the company to Canadian Forest Products Ltd. In 2015, Canadian Forest Products Ltd. sold its interest to the Stewart family. The Andersen and Stewart families remain actively involved in the company.

Lakeland Mills Ltd. is now operated as a division of Sinclar Group Forest Products, under the leadership of third generation President Greg Stewart.

The company's sawmill and planer mill complex was upgraded in 1980 and saw significant renovations and improvements over the years as technology advanced. Attention has always been paid to realizing the greatest value and lumber volume from each log processed. As a result, Lakeland Mills is known as one of the highest recovery mills in Canada.

Following a tragic explosion and fire at the company's sawmill on April 23, 2012, Lakeland was rebuilt and reopened in Fall 2014.

Lakeland's primary products are premium grade, precision end-trimmed kiln dried 2x4 studs, as well as 2x6 and 2x3 studs, and1x3 and 1x4 board stock.

Byproducts from mill operations include wood chips and hog fuel. Lakeland has two partnerships to supply fibre for bioenergy systems: one for the Prince George District Energy System; the other for the UNBC/Nexterra Gasification System.

Our customers are located around the world.
