San Group is a diverse organization supplying a global market with products from sawn lumber through to engineered wood products.

The company was founded in 1960 by Cliff Coulson and maintained itself as family business for over 5 decades. San Group is proud to have acquired Coulson Manufacturing and its respected history in British Columbia. San Group is committed to maintaining and increasing its commitment to the Port Alberni region.

Coulson Manufacturing operates a primary lumber manufacturing facility and two re-manufacturing facilities in Port Alberni, BC, focusing on old growth Western Red Cedar Lumber products.

Our primary goal is to provide our customers with a world class, sustainable, and environmentally responsible lumber product that meets the highest standard of lumber certification and LEEDs credentials. Our new and innovative Western Red Cedar products that are part of the Coulson Design Line (CDL) will allow for a lower price point than solid cedar while maximizing every cedar board to its full potential.
