In 1973, LG Wilson & Sons, a partnership between Bill Wilson and his Father Lloyd, was incorporated as Wilson Bros. Enterprises Ltd. At 19 years old, Bill purchased a cable skidder and worked as an owner/operator in the Houston area for various contractors, as well as Northwood Pulp & Timber’s company show. Bill expanded to two, and then three skidders, and also purchased and sawed timber with his own sawmill in the off-seasons.
In 1976, Wilson Bros. entered into their first logging contract with Northwood Pulp & Timber. Bill Wilson grew the business from logging 50,000 m3 of wood with just a few employees, to logging and trucking 700,000 m3 with over 100 employees.
In 2013, with retirement on their minds Bill and his wife, Ann, decided to downsize their business. In 2014, they sold Wilson Bros. to their son, Steve.
Today, Wilson Bros. Enterprises harvests and transports 550,000 m3 of timber and builds approximately 70 kilometres of road annually, employing over 80 people.
