May 16, 2018 - Canada-based Danzer companies Interforest Ltd. in Durham, Ont., and Interforest Lumber, Inc. in Boucherville, Que., have been trading together under the name Danzer Canada Inc. since May 1.


There are no changes whatsoever for employees and customers. For Danzer, the merger helps to simplify the structure of the group. The new name also provides a more consistent brand identity.

Danzer sites in Durham and Boucherville
Danzer employs over 30 people at its two Canadian sites. The plant located in Durham specializes in splicing veneers and also sells veneers and lumber.

In Durham we are in a position to fulfill smaller-scale specialist commissions in addition to large-scale industrial orders thanks to our highly flexible manufacturing processes,” explained general manager Ulrich Kaempfe. “We focus on delivering above-average service, short throughput times and consistently high-quality products.”

Danzer operates a veneer sales depot in Boucherville which has four employees.

Danzer is one of the world's largest producers of decorative hardwood. The company was founded in 1932 with its holding company located in Dornbirn, Austria.
