Understanding the Ownership of Southcoast

Southcoast Reman is proudly owned by Coal Island Ltd., a private holding company held by the Shields Family. The family’s diverse portfolio includes significant assets in the forest products industry, such as Coastland Wood Industries Ltd., North America’s leading veneer manufacturer, and Southcoast Reman Ltd. Additionally, they hold a substantial commercial real estate portfolio in British Columbia.

Southcoast Reman Ltd. has a rich history, tracing its roots back to 1999 when it was established from Shields Forest Products and its predecessor, Byrne Reman. Initially operating on Byrne Road in Burnaby, it later evolved into Southcoast Millwork Ltd.

In 2007, the business relocated to Maple Ridge, taking over a pre-existing 13.6-acre lumber remanufacturing site equipped with planer and resaw lines, along with substantial building and storage space. Southcoast Millwork Ltd. constructed a new kiln drying facility in 2007 and began a transformative reinvention of its business in 2010.

The company was incorporated into Coal Island Ltd. in 2011 and underwent a rebranding as Southcoast Reman in 2014. In January 2020, it was re-established as a stand-alone operating business, Southcoast Reman Ltd.

Today, Southcoast Reman stands as one of the largest independent custom lumber remanufacturers and dry kiln operators on the British Columbia Coast, a testament to its enduring legacy and commitment to excellence.
