One of the best sawmill locations in Alberta, Spray Lake Sawmills is located in Cochranewhich is just 15 minutes west of Calgary and 45 minutes east of Canmore.

We’ve been in operation for over 75 years and have a progressive and dynamic operation which includes the usual high-tech sawmill, up to date planer with a GradExpert in behind, several kilns, two pressure-treating wood preservative plants, a post peeling operation and aby product utilization division.

Our timber supply is secure through an FMA and Quota and we operate in a beetle-free region of the province. We are a family-owned and operated outfit with just over 200 dedicated employees and have some of the best people in the forest industry working here! After many years of stability in our millwrighting team, one of our guys is moving on. He’sbeen a solid contributor and we are sad to see him leave however his departure creates a unique opportunity for us to add a Certified Millwright to our maintenance group. Ideally, you will have worked on Optimil systems, VKB and Nicholson debarkers, Newnestrimmers, stackers, and J-bars. Experience with compressors, hogs, chippers, and screeners is an asset. You should be proficient with hydraulics, pneumatics and conveyor/transfer systems. Above all else, you will be a leader in safety with a proven track record of assessing every job before you start, capable of sticking to SOP’s and best practices as well as never missing a lock, tag, and test protocol.

If you have a positive attitude, you are a hard worker, a certified millwright or close to it, and have extensive sawmill experience with associated tickets, we are looking for you. We offer competitive wages, group benefits, moving support, a premium for dual tickets, 44 regular hours plus weekly OT. The maintenance team is 24/7 as it supports our production requirements, therefore, shiftwork of days, nights and weekends is required.
