48 Years Of Westmill & Still Going Strong

Established in 1975, Victor Crondahl started Westmill Industries supplying parts and equipment to the Canadian plywood manufacturing industry. Now, nearly five decades later Westmill continues to grow under its current owner, Mike Crondahl, son of the founder.

Westmill has become a world leader in the design and manufacture of veneer drying equipment and technologies. Twenty-five years after Westmill installed the plywood industry’s first insulated stainless dryer floor under an existing dryer, a practice that is now standard worldwide, Westmill continues to grow and achieve milestones such as currently building the largest veneer dryer in the world.

After having been awarded many important veneer dryer patents over the past 20+ years, today Westmill remains most proud of receiving both the prestigious Innovator of the Year and the Supplier of the Year awards from the EWTA.

“To all our friends and customers worldwide, thank you for entrusting us with your dryer needs and for helping us grow!” comments Mike Crondahl, Owner/President.
