Canfor is a story of people; about how two entrepreneurs created an enterprise that grew from a modest beginning to become one of Canada's major forest products companies. The company traces its roots to the late 1930s, when brothers-in-law John G. Prentice and L.L.G. "Poldi" Bentley and their families left their native Austria as the clouds of war gathered over Europe.
Today, Canfor is one of the world’s largest producers of sustainable lumber, pulp and paper. They’ve built their reputation on the quality of our products, the reliability of their supply and their superior customer service.
