Dates of existence


The history of Seaboard Lumber Company and Seaboard Shipping Company dates back to 1919. At this time thirty sawmills joined together to form the Associated Timber Exporters of British Columbia Ltd. (Astexo). The organization provided a cooperative clearinghouse for its members in the sale of lumber to Vancouver wholesalers and exporters. In 1928 Astexo formed a subsidiary, Seaboard Lumber Sales Company, to market British Columbia lumber on the international market, and later established the Seaboard Shipping Company to transport the lumber. John Humbird of Victoria Lumber and Manufacturing in Chemainus, B.C. served as president of the company from 1935 to 1946.
