Kandola Forest Products Makes Presentation for Quesnel, BC City Council

Kandola Forest Products (KFP) began operations in April 2021 in the former C&C mill facility located in Quesnel, BC.

Neal Kandola, the CEO of the value-added mill appeared before the Quesnel City Council and reported that KFP has captured a bigger market share that previous company operating out of the mill was ever able to accomplish. “We compete globally, and our main competitors are importers, who import the products that we make here,” Kandola said.

Currently, KFP is producing shiplap and paneling and selling it to big box retailers across North America for do-it-yourself use. KFP even has their own printing press, which they use to properly label all products for the stores they produce for.

Moving forward, one of Kandola’s goals is to construct what the company is calling a (Non)Structural Beam facility in their mill. The product would fall under the “mass timber” designation. Mass timber products are made of thick, compressed layers of wood Mass timber and has a lower carbon footprint than traditional building materials.
