Message From the President

November 03, 2015

Anniversary 30th emblemWe recently celebrated our 30th anniversary as a company. During the past three decades, as the world has seen unpredictable change in the way people do business and companies produce products, two things at Great Northern Lumber have remained constant.
First, we are committed to being good stewards of our environment. Our timber base serves as a solid foundation for our company, ensuring the readyAnniversary 3 availability of one of the worlds most unique, versatile, and sustainable building products: wood. As we manage our forests and harvest the wood used in producing essential products for today’s society, we gratefully acknowledge the dedication and efforts of those who planted and nurtured those trees generations ago. And like those people of yesteryear, we replant and nurture millions of trees each year to ensure an adequate supply of this valuable resource for generations to come.
Second, we manufacture and sell quality wood products that will help to meet the needs of today’s industrial manufacturers, commercial contractors and builders. We operate and produce a variety of products in four major business areas: composite panels, plywood, re-manufactured wood, and lumber.
With a healthy, well-managed resource base, coupled with modern state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, we are uniquely positioned to meet the emerging needs of a diverse customer base. Our people, many of whom are second and third generation wood products employees, are omitted to producing and delivering a wide range of unique products that come from one of the world’s most sustainable products: wood.
