April, 15th is a tentative date for the opening of the new remanufacturing plant in Port Alberni, B.C.  

SAN FOREST PRODUCTS (division of San Group) will house the latest wood-processing equipment from the most renowned European manufacturers: Brunner Hildebrand from Germany, Golden Eye scanner from Italy, automatic stacking and sorting System TM from Denmark, 6 Weinig moulders from Germany, and 1 Waco Dominant from Sweden, to name but a few. This machinery will enable SAN FOREST PRODUCTS to process under utilized fibre that is currently left in the bush and burned.

All value-added operations, such as planning, finger-jointing, gluing, laminating, staining, veneering, moulding, and drying will be performed in the 300,000 square foot brand-new heated buildings. The drying chamber’s capacity is 3 million FBM per month.  The project’s area of 30 acres is blacktopped, for the safety of our employees and elimination of dust made by vehicles. 

SAN FOREST PRODUCTS will provide high quality products to demanding world markets utilizing the latest, cutting-edge technology.

San Group’s retail division, SAN CEDAR DIRECT, comprises seven outlets, spanning British Columbia and Alberta.  This year, it celebrates two years of successful operation, providing the Canadian markets and home owners with high quality lumber products. 

Extracting the best value from the natural resources available and creating and keeping jobs in Canada are the corner stones to San Group’s success.

Remanufacturing shows our respect for the resources Nature gave us.

From Harvest to Home, San Group focuses on making more from less.
