Serving Peru, Illinois Area since 1848



The Ainsworth saga began humbly. In 1952, David Ainsworth and his brother Tom moved to BC's Cariboo country, bringing a sawmill with them--a small one, that could be towed behind a tractor or truck. They set up in the forests of Williams Lake, then Clinton, and finally settled in 100 Mile House. Along with the brothers and David's wife Susan, the company boasted three employees. They lived and worked in tents, moving into portable cabins as the business grew. Today, Ainsworth employs over 850 people and operates four manufacturing facilities across Canada. The Ainsworth family has not been actively involved in the company since 2008, when the financial groups that had supplied the capital required for our growth over the last decade took a majority ownership position, and the company transitioned from a family run enterprise. With solid financial backing, Ainsworth will continue to expand our product lines and invest in innovative technologies to continue our story for decades to come.
