About

Since 1952, we’ve been building a reputation for excellence in engineered wood products. Across North America and internationally, dealers, manufacturers and builders trust AinsworthEngineered® for consistent quality and value.

Our market-leading wood products include oriented strand board (OSB), oriented strand lumber (OSL) and specialty overlaid panels. Our mills are some of the most technologically advanced in the industry, and are strategically located in timber-supply regions – enabling us to be more sustainable. Further, when we manufacture OSB, we use every shred of wood fiber, with virtually no waste.

Ainsworth: we bring quality and value to sustainable building products.

Commitment to Sustainability

Ainsworth:

  • Makes OSB from renewable woods, harvested from sustainably-managed forests (ensuring prompt regeneration)
  • Uses fast-growing northern aspen and white birch, as well as pine trees killed by the mountain pine beetle
  • Maintains control of 100% of the wood fiber supplies, using every shred of wood fiber, with virtually no waste
  • Locates our mills near our forestlands, reducing our carbon footprint
  • Offers FSC certified OSB products
  • Complies with SFI standards and Canadian forest laws. These stringent laws are why Canada retains 91% of its original forests, and our deforestation rate is virtually zero
