Ayer’s Cliff 1951: Arthur Ferland and his wife Suzanne are building a sawmill on Clough street and will live there for the next seven years. In 1959, the demand keeps growing and the couple purchase a farm where they move the sawmill to take advantage of the new and better suited location; 1245 Main Street, Ayer’s Cliff will be and will remain Ferland Sawmill’s new address. The Ferland children, Rémy and Onil, are involved in the business operations and decide to both take over the business when Mr. Ferland retires towards the end of the Seventies.
In 2020, Jasmin Côté becomes the new owner of Scierie Ferland, still carefully respecting and maintaining the high standards and savoir-faire established through the years, in the selection, handling and drying processes of all timber products. Undoubtedly, these standards are what made the reputation of Scierie Ferland when it comes to offer a product of superior quality.
