In 1974, Wynn Walker built a mill along the beautiful Fraser River, in Ruskin, B.C. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of a union of three mills – into what is now known today as the Waldun Group. Today, Waldun Forest Products is one of the largest mills in the shake and shingle industry. Our focus is to manufacture shakes and shingles from end pieces that would otherwise be wasted in the lumber-making process at Twin Rivers, as well as from blocks removed from fallen trees in the forests.
Waldun Forest Products is a proud member of the Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau. For Waldun Forest Products to continue to lead the industry in quality, service, and affordability, we maintain a stringent quality program. Our four supervisors have over 100 years of experience combined. They strive every day to continue delivering the consistency our group demands. Unlike some mills, which sacrifice quality for affordability, Waldun places quality and value paramount. Because our employees take pride in their craftsmanship, they are concerned that every item be on-grade. With quality being so vital to us, we don’t just wait for visits from independent outside inspectors. Our in-house inspectors are constantly examining both products and process to guarantee that you get the most for your money. After all, you are our most important inspector
For Waldun to ensure our product is consistently the highest quality in the industry, we utilize the industry’s most thorough quality control measures. Waldun is the only mill with two independent inspection firms continually checking our products to ensure they are of the highest quality. Many firms do not have any inspection firms and we encourage buyers to beware of these manufacturers. The most obvious reason that other manufacturers do not have independent inspection agencies is because they make off-grade product. We care about you, the customer, and because of this we welcome inspectors to accompany our own quality control team to make sure we continue to produce the highest quality product possible. The Waldun Group and the select distributors of our products share a common commitment to quality products and quality service. We believe that our distributors are without peer in our industry. Stave Lake sidewall shingles are only produced from shingles produced by members of the Cedar Shake and Cedar Bureau. Only when you start with quality can you get the quality we strive for. Can your current supplier make the same claim?
