Cascadian Company has been in business since 1948. Originally, we specialized in industrial clears and were primarily involved in the manufacture of cross-arms and other products for the utility industry. Lumber remanufacturing was a secondary business. In 1985, we started shifting our emphasis.
By 1995, we became a pure remanufacturing (service only) company. We make no products that compete with the value added products we produce for our customers.
