Lauzon buys 10 million of PMP every year from private producers to supplement the log volume from its private and public lands.
A Solid Partner
Lauzon’s forestry division owns and operates the largest Canadian hardwood sawmill. It is located in Thurso, Quebec, and Lauzon manages logging activities on both private and public lands across Quebec and Ontario. Lauzon also works in close collaboration with private forest producers, and the relationship of trust between foresters and Lauzon is well established. The Lauzon wood buyer crisscrosses the country driving 70,000 km annually. This way of working, with boots on the ground, allows us to understand the specific needs of our suppliers and customize our approach. We monitor the markets day by day and listen to our local forestry partners.
Whether the goal is to purchase logs, cuts, land, shaping logs, walking the cutting territories or any other need, our priority is to ensure the sustainability of our business relationships. This close collaboration ensures the traceability of products we purchase, an important asset for Lauzon and its customers.
We purchase logs from territories within Quebec, Ontario, and the northeastern United States. Logs are often purchased from locations as far as 700 kilometers from our sawmill. We carefully coordinate log transport with our partners to make process more efficient for producers.
