Why Do We Care?
West Fraser is nothing without framers. They install everything we make. And right now, there aren’t nearly enough of them.
This hurts our customers – the building materials dealers who stock and sell our products, and the builders who buy them for use in new house construction. They range from small businesses employing one or more framing crews, to major developers who plan, build and market entire neighborhoods.
It also hurts the US economy. The framer shortage is slowing new house construction during this time of high demand. Thousands of American families with the means to purchase new homes can’t, simply because of the housing backlog.
It’s a big problem.
