In 2011, Steve Power retired and was succeeded by the ownership team of Jake Power and Dustin Elliott. Jake manages the sales force and Dustin the operations. Both have played a prominent role in rebuilding the operations of the company and both are committed to continuing to build PowerWood through exceptional quality, service and consistency.
When the Surrey site could no longer handle our rapidly expanding business, we began looking for a location that would allow us to further realize our vision of transitioning into specialty manufacturing.
In the summer of 2021, we moved to our new Agassiz facilities located on 12.2 acres in British Columbia’s beautiful Fraser Valley, on the traditional territory of the Cheam, Sts’ailes, Sq’éwlets and Seabird Island people. The new, larger remanufacturing facility allows us to increase both our workforce and our output, which will increase to 25 MMBF annually over the next few years, with a continued focus on adding value to B.C.’s fibre resources.
