A cutting-edge wood processing mill

The BarretteWood factory in Roberval joined the family in 2008 and has since excelled at processing value-added wood. The team applies its know-how to manufacture a wide range of products. From box spring components and furring strips to crating and packing materials and multipurpose lumber, every product meets the highest industry standards.

Ongoing investment considerably improves the performance of our operations while optimizing raw materials. Our cutting-edge installations meet every demand of our international clientele, down to the most specific.

  • + 120 employees who work all year round
  • + 100,000,000 fbm (foot board measure) of production capacity
  • 1,315,000 ft2 site

« The versatility of the equipment, the experience but especially the dedication of the team, allow us to respond quickly to the needs of our customers. »

- Stéphane Castonguay, Plant manager (acting) and Quality control coordinator

By-products that are in-demand

After we manufacture our products, we sell the by-products to a wide variety of industries. Our philosophy is simple: Be less wasteful and more efficient so we can reduce our environmental footprint.

  • Sawdust and wood shavings for the agricultural sector
  • Woodchips for the pulp and paper and energy sectors
  • Wood shavings for race horses

Reusing raw materials

BarretteWood’s greatest strength is optimizing the use of every piece of wood, in addition to manufacturing by-products. For example, the lumber kiln is powered only by waste from the wood processing mill. The factory also uses biomass to heat all 111,000 ft2 of the site’s buildings. This source of renewable energy has been the company’s pride for over a decade!

  • Optimal use of wood
  • Fewer woodchips produced
  • Biomass heating

Welcome to Roberval!

Located halfway between Quebec City and the Nord-du-Québec region, Roberval is much more than a tourist town. Here you’ll find both the advantages of the city and the freedom of small-town living close to nature thanks to Roberval’s proximity to Lac-Saint-Jean and the Saguenay Fjord. In both summer and winter, there’s lots to do: hunting, fishing, ATV riding, cycling, swimming across the lake with the Traversée internationale du lac Saint-Jean, hitting the road with your bike for the Véloroute des Bleuets, festivals, the Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien… Living in Roberval means choosing quality of life in a region that’s proud of its roots!
