EACOM Timber Corporation

EACOM Timber Corporation is a Canadian woods product company.  Operations include the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of lumber and wood-based value-added products, and the management of forest resources.  EACOM owns 7 sawmills, a remanufacturing facility, and an engineered I-joist plant with over 1,200 employees.  We are committed to investing in strong assets, including healthy forests, advanced technology and talented people.  We believe that contributing to a strong community is an important part of living up to our values of respect, integrity, learning and collaboration.  As our company grows, so does our commitment to encouraging the activities of our employees, to supporting local initiatives, and to engaging with youth in our communities.  That includes working with our First Nations partners to achieve Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification, a program under the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business.  Fostering a culture that values education and learing is more than just a commitment at EACOM: we made it part of our most fundamental values.  We believe it is important to encourage youth to pursue their dreams and to set goals for the career they see themselves evolving in.
