Tolko Industries Ltd.
who we are
Tolko Industries Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and marketer of a broad range of forest products to customers around the world.
Founded in 1956, Tolko has grown from a small sawmill in Lavington, British Columbia, to become a company diversified by geography and product. Tolko manufactures lumber, unbleached kraft papers, panel products, co-products, biomass power, and a growing number of specialty wood products in its operations across Western Canada.
This family-owned company, now with the third generation of Thorlakson leadership, maintains progressive business practices with traditional values: safety, respect, integrity, progressiveness, open communication, and profit. Customers and business partners recognize Tolko for our reliability, flexibility, and efficiency. Fundamental to our success is a committed workforce that thrives on change, building relationships, and a drive toward excellence.
Tolko is committed to the well-being of future generations through responsible operational and environmental performance. This commitment applies to all aspects of Tolko’s business. The Company’s Woodlands departments hold third-party certification on the forestland they sustainably manage in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Tolko strives to play an active and constructive role in the communities in which we operate and where our employees live.
