Teal-Jones Group Media & Communications
Teal Jones is BC’s largest privately-owned coastal forestry company.
A family-owned value-added manufacturer, the company employs more than 1,000 people directly in woods and sawmill operations across B.C., plus numerous contractors and service providers – many in remote communities where few other employment options exist. The company’s Surrey mill site and headquarters supports more than 500 jobs across seven specialized milling operations, giving the company the flexibility to ensure every log arriving at the site is directed to its highest-value potential.
Teal Jones has invested and committed to investing $60-million in its primary Surrey site since 2019 to strengthen its value-added manufacturing in British Columbia. The company ensures 100 per cent of every log it mills is used, with sawdust and chips directed to partners in pulp, paper, and biofuel production.
