The Mill

The Mill

The Hornepayne sawmill complex is located within the Nagagami Forest, a mixed wood site of nearly 4,500 square kilometers in the Boreal Forest Region. It's known for its ability to produce high quality lumber products sourced from forests in the local and surrounding region. The company’s objective is to produce approximately 100 million board feet of FSC® certified Random Length.

We recently installed a new autograder providing us high quality and precision results.

In 2021, there was a $2.6Million investment in the Nicholson Debarker Installation.

The mill site currently employs approximately 100 people and many more are indirectly employed via contractors, suppliers and support services. Through direct and indirect means, the mill injects millions per year into the regional economy.

Forestry

Forestry

The forests we source our timber from are managed, audited and certified by independent third parties. Most of the forest in Ontario is public land. The use of public land in Ontario is governed by long-term forest management arrangements that include a public input process and regular, periodic government auditing.

We are a responsible forest manager adhering to the best sustainable forest management practices, respecting federal and provincial laws. As a lumber manufacturer, access to abundant, affordable, and secure sources of fibre is of critical importance. We share our forest resources with many other forest users, and we strive to work cooperatively with those who have a stake in the forest and to conserve forest resources for future generations.

We are committed to certification for our managed timberlands through credible certification options. We have been, and remain, a supporter of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification standards, both in terms of responsible forest management certification and in chain the of custody certification.
