Doubletree goes Gorman
Thursday, March 15, 2018
On March 14, 2018 a group of us from Doubletree (Hayden, Jeff, Mark and Shane) travelled up to Gorman Bros Sawmill in West Kelowna to watch a new product get run for the first time at their mill. It was the first time since the mill opened in 1951 that Gorman has processed Fir/Larch boards. The goal is to create a program to supply T&G Paneling and Flooring products with the same quality and consistency that the Gorman name has been known for, for decades. Doubletree Forest Products is proud to partner with Gorman Bros to be the exclusive distributor for these products. We're expecting to have inventory at our Distribution Yard in the coming days. We were not disappointed with what we saw, the finish, the patterns, and the quality are of the highest standards. Looking for ward to seeing this heading out on the trucks for years to come.

Happy Pizza Day Doug!!

Doug Reynolds has been with Doubletree since day one, when they were operating out of Neil Reynold’s basement in 1977. We appreciate all the hard work he and his family has put into building Doubletree from the ground up. Along with the great family he has handpicked to work by his side. January 31st, 2018 marks his last day of work and first day of his retirement. For the past forty-one years we have been graced with his humour and generosity. He has helped mold Doubletree into the company it is today and for that we are so thankful. He sure is happy with his box!!

40th Anniversary
Thursday, December 21, 2017
In 2017, Doubletree Forest Products celebrated their 40th Year in business. As a family owned and operated business for the first 40 years with an aging, retired and soon to be retiring shareholder group of 4, Doubletree Forest Products succession is in safe hands. On May 1, 2017, Doubletree Forest Products was sold to a group of 5 current traders working at the company for a combined 65 years. Mark Kenny, Shawn Kenny, Jeff Girard, John Starrett and Shane Elder will carry the torch for Doubletree for many years to come. We would like to thank our former employers for their dedication and the exceptional business practices they have instilled in our day to day operations. "We're confident that we can hit the ground running and continue the business we've done for the last 40 years while always looking for new opportunities where they might present themselves".
