Nechako Lumber Co. Ltd. began production in 1969, purchasing rough lumber from bush mills located around the Vanderhoof area. In 2017, L&M Lumber was merged into Nechako Lumber Co. Ltd.
Nechako Lumber Co. Ltd. has dedicated significant resources to developing an environmentally-sustainable operation. In 1999 an investment was made to install a thermal oil/wood residue incineration site in Vanderhoof. This system is used to heat the sawmill, the planer mill and dry lumber in the kilns, effectively and economically disposing of wood waste while avoiding the beehive burner and its resulting air pollution.
In addition to the lumber manufacturing operations, Nechako Lumber Co. Ltd. operates Premium Pellet Ltd., which turns sawdust and planer shavings into wood pellets for domestic heating and power production.
