Our History

Locally owned and established in 1989, La Crete Sawmills Ltd. began with 4 employees hired for the initial construction of the mill with a focus of marketing our products into Japan. Over the course of the last 25 years, our market has expanded to cover North America as well as overseas.  

Currently, we operate as a team of approximately 160 dedicated employees that strive to produce a quality product to meet our own high standards. We specialize in the lumber production of spruce and aspen as well as the production of quality wood pellets.

Our mill’s annual capacity is 110 million board feet; the lumber mill operates a two-line sawmill with two dry kilns, a planer, and a remanufacturing facility. The wood pellet mill began operation in January of 2003 in a brand new 17,600 square foot building and is capable of producing up to 150,000 tonne of pellets annually.
