end of July and closed down our contractor
yard. We had already closed down our original
location earlier in July.
Since 2009, we have concentrated on
improvements, customer service and building a strong customer base. The community
has been good in supporting us.
We have between 12-14 people employed.
We readily admit that our staff is a huge part
of what has made us successful.
We have recently started a small lumber
remanufacturing facility and are concentrating on growing this as well.
The oldest brother, Trennis, who is currently managing the company, is planning
to buy out the two brothers this year. In the
meantime, it is business as usual helping our
customers to solve their problems and meet
their needs one day at a time.
If you are ever in Burns Lake, be sure to
stop by and introduce yourself. We are always
glad to meet new people!

Windsor Plywood Coquitlam is a family
owned and operated business. We are committed to providing outstanding value and
good old fashion service to our customers.
The success of this business is a direct
reflection of the staff and their ability to
work as a team. We are family owned and
operated and those team members who are
not family are treated just like family. The
team members are encouraged to learn more
and exceed their own personal expectations
of themselves.
At Windsor Plywood Coquitlam our philosophy is to treat our customers as we would
like to be treated. In doing so we ensure the
customer has a great experience and will
recommend our business to their friends
and family.
Keeping the business in the family would
be the ideal future for Windsor Plywood
Coquitlam and building a strong legacy for
future generations.
Being a family business we tend to get
involved in our community and support other
local business and charitable groups.

Mat started his sales career at The Taiga
Works outdoor equipment in the Institutional
Sales Department selling jackets and outdoor clothing to government and corporate
organizations. In 2008 he started outside sales
with Coast Distributors, selling hardware in
the North Vancouver Island area. In 2011
he started a year-long stint as the re-buyer at
Coast, splitting time between the purchasing
desk and a reduced outside territory. In 2012
he returned to outside sales, but also began
working inside sales one or two days a week.
During 2014, and 2015 the office took up
more and more of his time until outside sales
was one or two days a week with the rest of
the week spent working in the office. In June
of 2016 Mat started full-time in the office as
Assistant Sales Manager, finally shedding all
outside accounts. Mat lives in Nanaimo BC
with his wife Kara, and three boys, 12 year
old Braeden, 10 year old Bowen, and 8 year
old Rylan.
Matt received this award from votes
gathered by his customers, congratulations
again!
