Employer Name:                Hornepayne Lumber LLP

Hornepayne Lumber LLP is located in Hornepayne, Ontario, 100 kilometers north of White River, Ontario.

The company was originally founded by Olav and Elna Haavldsrud in 1953 and until recently, was known as Olav Haavaldsrud Timber Company. Having immigrated to Canada from Kongsberg Norway, Olav and Elna (joined by their four sons – Walter, Burt, Norman and Carl) first purchased a small pulp log manufacturing plant that provided eight-foot logs to Quebec and Ontario Paper Company (now Abitibi). The company quickly grew to include a sawmill in order to utilize some of the larger logs available from the Nagagami Forest, a mixed wood site of nearly 4500 square kilometers located in the Boreal Forest Region.

The Haavaldsrud sawmill, purchased by Frank Dottori, Chairman and CEO of White River Forest Products LP in the summer of 2016, was built on a strong reputation for producing quality lumber products and M. Dottori intends to continue on this path and improve were possible.

The mill’s production is expected to grow from the historic 60 million board feet annually to 110 million board feet.
