In 1974, AFA Forest Products Inc. was founded by four colleagues and friends – Al Jack, Frank Ingoldsby, Al Young and Gord Pace. In its inception, with only one branch in Bolton, Ontario, the focus was on specializing in the distribution of construction plywood and lumber to the Ontario commodity market. Today, AFA, still a privately owned Canadian company, is truly coast to coast. There is a total of 13 branches stretching from Vancouver to Newfoundland, AFA is a leader in these markets. With a focus on allied products, AFA has maintained its position as one of the leaders in the distribution industry.
Our allied product lines such as laminate and engineered flooring; faux stone siding; composite and pvc decking, and roofing shingles prove that our company is ready for the changes the market has brought to the industry. AFA prides itself in keeping up with today’s trends and staying at the forefront of the distribution industry.
The AFA of today is a diversified, bilingual distribution company. We are proudly 100% Canadian owned and operated. Our employees are respected and well regarded in the Canadian renovation, retail and industrial industry. Our goal is to provide a service unmatched in the distribution industry and to lead the way with innovative products and marketing ideas for the future.
