DELSON, Que.—Two Quebec-based companies are planning to form what they say will be Eastern Canada’s largest producer of treated wood, with seven plants in four provinces.
The joint venture would own Goodfellow Inc.’s three plants in Delson, Que., Elmsdale, N.S., and Deer Lake, N.L. and Lebel Cambium’s two Ontario plants (Bancroft and Caledon) and two Quebec plants (Degelis and St-Joseph).
Goodfellow Inc. of Delson (TSX:GDL) would be its exclusive distributor for the joint venture. It’s currently a distributor and manufacturer of lumber and hardwood flooring.
Group Lebel Cambium is a family-owned integrated lumber producer headquartered in Riviere-du-Loup, Que.
