About Us

Andersen Pacific is a high-value and dependable custom-cut sawmill. For nearly two decades APFP has been manufacturing the finest timber available in the Pacific Northwest. We pride ourselves on providing only the highest caliber wood products—available in Hemlock, Spruce, Douglas Fir, Western Red and Yellow Cedar.


Andersen Pacific Forest Products is a privately-held, family-owned company.
For 50 years Charlie Andersen has been an active member of British Columbia’s forestry industry.
In 1964 he started up Canadian Overseas, his first in a series of forestry-related companies.

In 1993 Mr. Andersen realized a long-time dream with the purchase of a manufacturing facility—Andersen Pacific Forest Products.

For two decades the Andersen Pacific mill has delivered the highest quality sawn wood products to markets around the globe.
