Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, CanWel is Canada’s only fully integrated national distributor in the building materials and related products sector. CanWel’s goal is to deliver value and service that exceeds their clients’ expectations.

CanWel operates 16 distribution centres coast to coast in all major Canadian cities and strategic locations, as well as 2 in California and 14 in Hawaii. In addition to running multiple treating and planing facilities in North America, CanWel operates a vertically-integrated forest products company based in Western Canada called CanWel Fibre. CanWel Fibre owns approximately 136,000acres of private timberlands, strategic Crown licenses and tenures, log harvesting and trucking operations, several post and pole peeling facilities, and two pressure-treated specialty wood production plants.

CanWel has continued to successfully pursue their development strategy in the manufacture of treated wood products and is now Canada’s largest producer of residential treated wood products, and agricultural posts. Their joint focus on Allied products in key categories such as siding, roofing, insulation, engineered wood products and outdoor living positions CanWel as a perfect single source supplier partner for their dealers.

Investments in professional sales training, customer service training, additions to their Building Solutions design support team, and infrastructure upgrades have ensured a personalized service experience that is second to none. Speaking of infrastructure, CanWel is leading the industry again with a new state-of-the art distribution facility in Acton, ON. Opening late spring 2018, the new location sits on 18 rail-serviced acres, featuring over 140,000 square feet of warehouse space.
