Company Info

Formed in 1995, Tl'oh Forest Products LP has operated successfully as a partnership between Apollo Forest Product and Nak'azdli First Nations.

The original business was 75% i-joist and 25% finger jointing. Shortly after starting, the decision was made to close the i-joist facility and expand the finger-joining production. In 2002 there was the further expansion of finger joint production with the creation of our second business Ta-Da-Chun. Finger jointing remains our core production today.
