OUR STORY really began in 1969, when founder Dave Wasmuth began buying softwood lumber for the U.S. rail market. In 1975, after operating a re-load yard in Surrey, focused on interior lumber for local yards, and shipments to the U.S., he formed Westminster Industries.
As the company approaches their 50th year, Westminster, through an experienced team of traders, a reputation for integrity, expert product advice, competitive pricing, and on-time delivery, serves a spectrum of design and building requirements, reaching many countries around the globe.
The company’s core continues to be wholesale dimension lumber. The growing range of products fulfills a diversity of customer requirements. The product range includes all grades of raw and finished timber, preserved wood, Western Red Cedar, Hemlock, Douglas Fir, and Southern Yellow Pine.
