Kalesnikoff is honoured to have been named the province’s lead exporter of manufactured products in the BC Export Awards, hosted by Business in Vancouver.

“Value-added manufacturing is a vital aspect of our industry, supplying jobs and stimulus to our economy,” said Ravi Kahlon, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation, before announcing Kalesnikoff as the winner in the manufactured products category.

This acknowledgement comes a year after Kalesnikoff opened our industry-leading mass timber facility and launched our line of mass timber products. This award builds on how we’ve established our global markets over four decades and how our successes keep adding up – even during the global pandemic. As a fourth-generation, family-owned business, Kalesnikoff has 81 years of history in the lumber industry and has been a global exporter since the 1980s.

“We manage our entire timber supply chain – all the way from the seedlings we plant to the mass timber solutions we build and design at our world-class facility,” said CEO and President Ken Kalesnikoff. “With our mass timber offerings, we are creating new, highly-skilled jobs, investing in technology and supporting our communities as well as our wonderful employees. We’re proud to add substantial value to our products locally in BC before serving the markets of the world.”

Kalesnikoff’s mass timber is being used for schools, community housing, university residences, commercial buildings and more throughout North America and beyond.
