Vancouver, BC — May 2, 2006—Cengea is pleased to welcome Western Forest Products as a customer using Cengea forest management software after the acquisition yesterday of Cascadia Forest Products.
Western is an integrated Canadian forest products company and currently the second largest coastal woodland operator in British Columbia. Principal activities conducted by Western and its subsidiaries include timber harvesting, reforestation, sawmilling logs into lumber and wood chips, and value-added remanufacturing. Over 95% of Western's logging is conducted on government owned timberlands in British Columbia. All of Western's operations, employees and corporate facilities are located in the coastal region of British Columbia and its products are sold in over 20 countries worldwide.
Following the completion of Western's acquisitions of Cascadia Forest Products Ltd. and Tree Farm License 37, Western expects to be the largest Coastal woodland operator and lumber producer with an AAC of approximately 7.7 million cubic meters and lumber capacity in excess of 1.5 billion board feet.
