San Group Corporate News

7km Value-Added Process

Over the past few years we have built an innovative manufacturing process consisting of a network of plants designed to optimize utilization and decrease waste in order to produce eco-friendly, carbon conscious building materials. From start to finish our entire process is completed within a 7km radius –  traditionally, this process may take thousands of km’s to achieve the same results.





San Group is addressing the waste fibre issue in a proactive way by constructing a new mill on the Coast of British Columbia, designed to fully utilize logs 3 inches in diameters and above. We are working to mitigate the issue of 2.6 million cubic meters left behind as under-utilized fibre. In turn, this reduces greenhouse gases and maximizes reforestation efforts, providing a solution to help reduce the forest industries overall carbon footprint.
