On July 12, Alberta Forest Products Association (AFPA) announced Tolko Industries Ltd. has officially joined the association.
For customers around the world, Tolko is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of forest products including lumber, plywood and veneer, oriented strand board (OSB), co-products, biomass power and a growing number of specialty wood products.
Tolko has operated in Alberta since 1994 when their OSB mill in High Prairie first came online.
Their two other divisions in Alberta include an OSB and LSL facility near Slave Lake, as well as a dimensional lumber mill in High Level, which is also home to a joint venture state-of-the-art pellet plant they own with DRAX. Combined, Tolko’s three facilities directly employ almost 700 workers.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Tolko join the AFPA family,” said AFPA President and CEO Jason Krips. “Tolko is a company known for their values, and their focus on diversity and inclusion, Indigenous partnerships, and innovation. We are excited to welcome them to the association and look forward to working with their team to continue to drive Alberta’s forest industry forward.”
