Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, we operate distribution centers, wood treatment plants, specialty sawmills, planing mills, post-peeling facilities across North America, and private timberlands.

Our distinctive vertical model empowers us to manage the complete supply chain, offering our clients the opportunity to acquire high-quality products at highly competitive prices.

Our Story

The Doman family name has proudly been in the lumber industry for over 100 years. Our roots begin with logging on the Canadian West Coast, and over the years, our operations have grown steadily through investment in the industry. The Doman name has been in sawmilling and trucking since the 1950s and remanufacturing since the 1970s, and we established our first lumber treating plant in the 1980s.

Founding what is now known as Doman Building Materials Group Ltd. in 1989, Doman is now one of the largest producers of value-added treated lumber in North America and a leading manufacturer and distributor of building products across the continent.
