Mitsui Home Canada

Mitsui Home Canada Inc. (MHCI) was founded in 1992, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsui Home Co. Ltd.—the largest builder of 2x4 “platform-frame” single-family homes in Japan.

In 1994 MHCI built a manufacturing plant on a 12.5 acre property in Langley, B.C. for the purpose of purchasing, processing, inventorying, quality-controlling and shipping over 100 million board feet of lumber and 8 million square feet of OSB panels annually to its parent company in Japan.

Over the ensuing years, MHCI developed “custom services” in its lumber processing and export shipping businesses such that an additional 100 million board feet of lumber may be resorted, regraded, trimmed, repackaged and/or shipped annually by MHCI on a custom service basis.

In 2005 MHCI added panelized manufacturing and construction capabilty to its domestic business and has supplied almost 2000 units of residential construction in single family, condominium and townhouse project throughout British Columbia in Canada and Seattle and Northern California in the US.

Our Staff


  • Mitsui Home Canada Inc. has been a great ally to our firm. Our company has increased production and quality with less qualified trades in a busy market. Thanks to Mitsui we kept our schedule on track even with the current snow delays.

    Tom Cop, Thomas Bradley Construction Ltd.

  • Mitsui is a pleasure to do business with – they are organized, efficient and when they say they'll do something it gets done. Product ships on time and as ordered.

    Vince Bulic, President, Yaletown Lumber Industries

  • You make it easy to do custom processing business with you; timely, experienced, quality oriented, good customer service and knowledgeable people.
