WHAT WE DO
With 40 years in the industry, we are a family owned and operated business that manufactures Eastern White Pine mouldings, window and door components.
We offer large rough cut pieces like rab jambs and flat jambs while using the smaller cuts from these items to produce precision and high grade pieces such as base board, quarter round and door stop.
Our commitment to excellence and quality assurance with timely deliveries has allowed Lewis Mouldings to remain a leader in the industry and a reliable business partner to our valued customers.
WHO WE ARE
Lewis Mouldings is built on family and community. Our operation is nestled along the shoreline of Saint Mary’s Bay in the rural township of Weymouth, Nova Scotia. We are a family-owned and operated business with strong roots in our community. Founded by Stewart Lewis in 1993, Lewis Mouldings is now led by Stewart's son, Jamie, along with several other family members who form the management team.
A PILLAR OF NOVA SCOTIA FORESTRY
The Lewis' history goes back to 1950. Harry Lewis, Stewart’s father, owned one of the largest sawmills in the area. Eventually, Stewart took over the management of Lewis Sawmill and, in 1993, branched out to form Lewis Mouldings to produce and offer value-added products.
GROWING WITH THE INDUSTRY
In its early years, Lewis Mouldings focused on manufacturing casket components. Over time, Lewis Mouldings shifted its focus to clear spruce and pine mouldings, followed by finger-jointed pine mouldings and door/window components. Lewis Mouldings' willingness to adapt to industry changes has allowed it to be one of the most extensive value-added facilities east of Quebec and the largest user of Eastern White Pine in Nova Scotia.
STEWARDSHIP AND WASTE RECOVERY
Lewis Mouldings values maintaining responsible stewardship of the wood fibre they process. Lewis Mouldings has always emphasized the importance of Full Fiber Recovery. To accomplish this, Lewis Mouldings utilizes their dry wood waste for the production of compressed wood briquettes known as Fiber Fuel.
With our state-of-the-art Optimizer, UV Putty, and Prime Lines, we are able to provide custom profiles with superior finish to a wide variety of finger jointed, solid and edge-glued Eastern White products.
Any combination of customers' needs can be met with our numerous precision end trimming equipment and our prime line capabilities. Ranging from Colonial style trim to industrial application needs, such as exterior door jambs and brick moulds, primed and not primed custom profiles can be developed. All products can be precision end trimmed and/or have other machining applied.
