About us

History

It was in 1898 that George C. Goodfellow first entered the lumber industry. Within four short years, he had established Goodfellow’s first lumber yard in Montreal. By researching and seeking out new markets, a long-lasting relationship developed with a major wood user at that time – the automobile industry.

Through the years, Goodfellow expanded its horizons across Canada and around the world, constantly strengthening its customer base and diversifying its range of products. Then, as now, the lumber business, hardwoods and timber in particular, were the cornerstones of our trade. But in the face of changing times, Goodfellow has kept pace and innovated within the industry. Today, Goodfellow remanufactures and distributes a wide range of lumber and wood products that meets and surpasses the new realities of environmental concerns and market needs.

Today, Goodfellow Incorporated’s head office in Delson, is well situated on Montreal’s south shore. This giant central yard is the home to our modern processing and storage plants.Our yard-based team of technical specialists work in partnership with our customers to provide not only products, but solutions. This is where Goodfellow’s one hundred years of experience has built a foundation for tomorrow.
