testimonials

 

"Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, Engelmann Spruce, they can market them all, anywhere in the world. I enjoy working with a company like Trapa that is relatively small but has expertise in so many different products and species."

Rob Marusic,
Sales Manager, Downie Timber Ltd
 

Given their long history of selling lumber products overseas and our long history of working together it was only natural that we would entrust Trapa with the responsibility of marketing our own Hemlock production. Trapa provides S&R with real global exposure; it is not uncommon to find production from a single cut being shipped into ten different markets around the world."

D.G. (Chick) Stewart,
President, S&R Sawmills Ltd..

 

"I feel confident having Trapa market my lumber products into Japan due to their honest, knowledgable, hard working people at Trapa."

Ashley Zavisha,
Vice President, Zavisha Sawmills Ltd.
