The group of seniors were eager to learn about the timber industry, and the inner workings of the mill. Instructor Tahar Messadi along with 16 students toured the facility.

Mill manager James Travis and Procurement Manager John McLellan led the group throughout the sawmill, explaining the process of taking raw timber to finished, graded lumber.

West Fraser is an industry leader. The jobs and resources they put back into the community are vital. The local mill has been extremely successful in producing specialty timbers, which have been shipped all over the United States and abroad, including Asia and the Caribbean. The high demand has given way to some highly skilled positions within the company and multi-level job opportunities. “I feel like the young people graduate and  just drive right past here and never give it a second thought, but there are a lot of opportunities to climb the ladder here,” stated Travis
