In April of 1976, a small two-man lumber wholesaling operation first hung out its shingle on MacLeod Trail in Calgary. That event was the foundation for today's Mayfair Lumber Sales Ltd., proudly celebrating 40 years as an independently owned, Alberta-based company.  B & L Lumber was acquired in 1992 and operated as a distinct entity until 1998 when it was merged into Mayfair. Besides adding to the company's customer base, this growth has driven an increase in Mayfair's experienced sales and support staff, from the original two to the 43 current employees. On the operations end, a recent expansion of the lumber remanufacturing facility, located adjacent to the main sales office and distribution yard in Calgary's Foothills Industrial Park, has created another successful area for Mayfair.

Under the leadership of President and founder Hank Dahl, the company's sales staff has developed excellent business relationships both with customers in Western Canada and the United States and the major mills. The company incorporates integrity, high professional standards and extraordinary service in meeting the demands of the industry and its customers. The personality of Mayfair is as unique as the people who make it all work through their efforts in maintaining supplier and customer relationships. The skills and enthusiasm of managers, salesmen and support staff have been essential in making Mayfair one of the most successful wholesale lumber businesses in Western Canada today. The long term growth and achievement of Mayfair stems from its commitment to customers to ensure their ultimate satisfaction with both service and product.

Another major key in the success of Mayfair has been the constancy of the objectives and values of the company since 1976. Maintaining the highest professional standards, recognizing potential and providing an enjoyable and rewarding work atmosphere have been at the core of the company since its foundation. "COMMITMENT TO SERVICE" is the long-standing watchword of Mayfair Lumber Sales Ltd
