Mitsui Home Canada Inc. (MHCI) lumber processing capability is second to none in quality and reliability.

MHCI custom-processes over 60 million board feet of lumber annually through its highly efficient Newnes trimming and sorting system. Through its Japanese Quality Management System, MHCI has proven to be one of the few custom-processors that can consistently satisfy the requirements of discerning customers. This extensive attention to quality has made MHCI the premier supplier of custom processing, particularly for export markets.

MHCI is the only known provider capable of trimming and stacking 4’ and 6’ lumber products at line speeds with conventional stacking and packaging. This ensures package quality on these items conforms to the tight packaging and wrapping expected on 8’ and longer packages. Also, on cut-in-two programs, MHCI is capable of removing the old stamp at full line speeds in a manner fully acceptable to the highest quality expectant customers.

MHCI is certified for lumber grading (CLS, ALS, NLGA and JAS) through Canadian Mill Services Association, yet many of MHCI processes are graded to a customer-specific grading rule.
