BUILDING SUPPLY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION - Fall 2019 - 12

ORION AWARDS
Supplier Company: Taiga Building Products, Langley
With 15 distribution centres across Canada and three in the United States, Taiga
Building Products guarantees excellent service, no matter where you are located.
In addition to their distribution centres, they have three Canadian treating plants
in Monetville, ON, Edmonton, AB and Langley, BC. They also recently acquired a
U.S. company called Exterior Wood, another treating plant and distribution centre
located in Washougal, WA primarily servicing the Pacific Northwest.
The Taiga Langley branch opened in its current location in 1999, moving from its
original location on Ewen Avenue in New Westminster. Taiga Langley is home to 38
dedicated Taigans, of which 19 work in a sales capacity while the other 19 support
the yard and warehouse operations. They have a great deal of experience and
product knowledge in this branch, with several staff exceeding a 20-year tenure.
Each year, Taiga Building Products works with multiple foundations across
Canada to help our communities. Langley has been an excellent example of this,
as illustrated by their involvement with Habitat for Humanity and through various
material donations to non-profit organizations like Scouts Canada, in the form of
lumber, preserved wood, Trex and Engineered Beams.
Taiga's product scope is large and ever-expanding and they are proud to offer a
large variety of building products; from composite decking to flooring to insulation,
they have you covered. They are also constantly evolving to serve you better. In
recent years, Taiga adopted a Warehouse Management System (WMS), which
guarantees inventory, with thorough tracking and inventory management at the
branch level. Since its inception in 2015, the program has successfully been rolled
out to 14 of 17 branches, with firm dates set to implement it at the remaining three
in 2019. From the moment a product is on the ground, to the time it arrives at
your door, Taiga can track it through the system. Real-time delivery details of any
shipment processed through Taiga is just one of the benefits for customers.
Taiga owns and operates its own logistics division consisting of a 16-truck fleet.
Taiga Logistics supports a growing market and to deliver building materials to
remote areas not regularly serviced by other transportation companies. This
allows them to provide excellent service and regular distribution to even the most
distant communities. Branches are in constant communication to ensure they
stock in-demand products in each region, with the option to do internal transfers
as needed.
Congratulations to Taiga Building Products for winning the 2019 Orion Award for
Supplier Company of the Year!
