A leading diversified wood products company, West Fraser is one of North America's largest lumber manufacturers with 45 facilities in British Columbia, Alberta, and the southern U.S. We're an established leader in sustainable forestry, high-efficiency wood product production, and innovation in manufacturing. West Fraser was founded in 1955 when three brothers – Sam, Bill and Pete Ketcham – pooled their resources to buy a small planing mill in Quesnel, B.C. The sweat and hard work of three young men, along with a founding group of pioneering employees, have laid the foundation for the Company, West Fraser, that thrives to this day. More than six decades later, the company has grown from the original 12-person crew at Two Mile Flat to be the largest lumber producer in North America.
