Longhouse Specialty Forest Products is Family owned and operated and located in Parksville, BC. They have won numerous awards for their products and service to the Forestry Industry. Most recently they were honoured with the title of ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ by the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
The 2019 inaugural Awards Gala, held by VICA, is open to all its members in good standing and intended to formally acknowledge the work members do across Vancouver Island. The panel of judges are comprised of industry professionals from across the Industrial, Commercial, Institutional, and multi-family residential construction sectors. Longhouse received the award specifically for the company’s recent project Pacific Centre Family Services Association in Victoria.
When asked how he feels about receiving the new title, Longhouse owner Brian Jenkins replied “Humbled. We went into it with no expectations. We manufacture pre-finished/ fire treated high grade lumber products. We are unlike any other forest products company. Our lumber products are not mass produced or from foreign countries. All of our products are sourced locally.”
Longhouse boasts delivering over 14,000 projects globally in the construction and design industry since 1985.
