Oliver Lumber originated in Toronto in 1872, at the foot of Spadina Road, and was owned by one of the former mayors of Toronto, Thomas Oliver. The site of the original Oliver lumberyard was the first wholesale distribution warehouse for specialty hardwoods and softwoods in the city. Oliver Lumber quickly became the largest lumber company of its kind in Canada, serving customers all over North America.
The Oliver Lumber office and warehouses are now located west of Toronto on highway 401 in Campbellville, Ontario. The new operation stocks over 15 million board feet of top quality domestic and exotic hardwoods, softwoods, and panel products from all over the world. The Oliver Lumber mills, drying facilities and distribution centres are all supplying the Oliver warehouses with a just-in-time service from their numerous locations. These services will provide the Oliver customers with an even wider range of top quality lumber and panel products.
Oliver Lumber stocks or imports over fifty different hardwood and softwood species. Whether you require Red Oak or Purpleheart, it’s either in-stock or we can fill it in a remarkably short time. We also carry an extensive selection of softwoods such as White Pine, Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar, as well as specialty products such as Keruing truck flooring, Ipe decking and clips, marine grade and fire retardant plywood and a full range of melamine and matching accessories.
Our on site custom milling facility is one more service that we offer our customers from the Campbellville location. Materials can be ordered rough, D2S, D4S or run to any profile imaginable. At Oliver we have the technology and craftsmen to duplicate even the most intricate patterns in both softwood and hardwood.
At Oliver we are committed to customer satisfaction. It doesn’t matter if your order is small or large, we can fill it – in any combination of thicknesses, grades, lengths, or species. Oliver is also committed to prompt, reliable delivery. The bottom line is that Oliver Lumber stands behind every order we fill, and that is a commitment that made sense in 1872 and it still makes sense today.
