Learn more about Kingdon Timber Mart's history and affiliations
Kingdon Truss has a rich history in the Kawartha’s – we began manufacturing in Peterborough in 1840 and expanded to include our Lakefield location in 1927. Kingdon Truss is a branch of Kingdon Timber Mart. Each of our stores is locally-owned and operated, but we are part of Canada’s largest building material buying group which means we save you money!
Kingdon Truss has been manufacturing roof and floor trusses since the 1950s. Since the 1970s we have been custom manufacturing and pre-hanging interior doors. These services result in faster, more accurate service for your next big project.
Over the years we have grown into a manufacturing and building supply provider not just a lumberyard. Kingdon lumber now Kingdon Timber Mart was the 2nd company in Canada to bring truss manufacturing to Canada back in 1959. We started a new division called Kingdon Truss in the early 90’s to help serve our customers better. The truss division operates out of the two Kingdon Timber Mart locations with designers located at both stores for superior customer service.
We have evolved to meet the needs of our customers by expanding into the manufacturing of interior doors as well as providing our customers with a complete line of building supplies and hardware at our two locations.
We expanded to offer a number of different services and manufactured products to serve our customers needs.
In 1926 the Lakefield location was established as a sawmill/lumberyard and barrelhead factory. The photo shown was taken in 1952.
