The Winton family started in the lumber business in Wisconsin in 1889. In Canada, the Winton history goes back to the early 1900’s as The Pas Lumber Company Ltd, founded in Manitoba. Relocating to Prince George in 1954, they continued on the land-base, harvesting and manufacturing Winton lumber in the BC forest industry.
Today, Winton Homes & Cottages is a part of Sinclar Group Forest Products, with a head office in Prince George BC.
