Canfor Celebrates 75 years in business by releasing signature cocktail series
Canfor is one of the world’s largest producers of sustainable wood building solutions. They’ve built their reputation on top quality products and superior customer service. A global leader in dimension lumber, Canfor is driving demand for green building products and serving markets in every corner of the world.
Many companies would celebrate a 75th anniversary with a party or cake. Not Canfor. They might have been around for 75 years, but as a company that has always looked to the future, they’re shaking up tradition.
Canfor has created a signature cocktail series to celebrate this occasion in style. Each cocktail is infused with the pride of Canfor’s corporate history – honouring the company’s leaders, milestones and the BC’s forest industry.
