About Me

Our company Centurion Lumber is a Canadian plywood producer and lumber remanufacturer located in British Columbia owned and operated by the Doman family for over 50 years. For the last eight years we have been bringing into North America European spruce and pine from Scandinavia, the Baltics, Germany, and Russia.

Our goal is to service both our customers and suppliers with the best possible options. We work hard to provide viable and profitable trade solutions to our supply chain partners through matching the needs of our customers with the unique fiber qualities and manufacturing capabilities of our Northern European suppliers. All our supply comes from independent, well established producers with whom we have long standing supply arrangements.
