Galloway Lumber Co.

Galloway, BC

The community of Galloway, lies just off the Kootenay Highway between Elko and Jaffray, and has been a mill town since the 1920’s, when a burgeoning logging industry brought families looking to find peace and prosperity in the rugged beauty of the region. Galloway Lumber Company Ltd. was established in 1945, and produces spruce-pine-fir dimension lumber destined for markets in the USA, Canada, and Japan.

The mill site is an expansive area neatly divided by stacks of both logs and finished lumber that surround the enclosed operations, showing a dedication to care that is evident in how the business is managed. Charles (Bud) Nelson, the company’s General Manager, is no stranger to bootstrapping the business through tough times, and has diligently upgraded the facility with a dedication to safety and efficiency. Galloway Lumber Company employs local contractors for harvesting and silviculture, and the business has enabled generations of families to live, work and play in their community.

Balancing stewardship with production, Galloway has seized opportunities to employ workers in habitat restoration during production downturns by thinning forests and preserving grasslands to maintain an excellent timber supply while nurturing the incredible biodiversity in the area.
