Job Description

Our Company: Kalesnikoff Mass Timber

At Kalesnikoff, we think in terms of generations, not quarters, and we recognize that people are our most valuable resource.

Our independent, family-owned timber business has been passed down for four generations, and through it all we’ve followed our motto: “Take care of the land, and the land will take care of you.”

We run a sawmill and a new, industry-leading mass timber facility, where we produce sizeable environmentally-friendly wooden panels and beams that are used for walls, floors and ceilings in schools, community housing, university residences, commercial facilities and more.

Yesterday and today:

Since 1939 and over four generations, our team has been inspired by forests and the endless possibilities for designing and building with wood. As one of the cleanest and most well-managed, high-technology specialty sawmills in B.C., we are committed to supporting our customers, our communities and our environment while producing some of the finest grain and highest quality softwood lumber products in the world.

Today, we are excited at the opportunity to create more jobs through our biggest investment yet – a $35 million mass timber facility. This new facility was recently constructed between Castlegar and Nelson, B.C. and uses state-of-the-art equipment to produce exceptionally high-quality cross-laminated timber panels and glulam beams.
