Columbia Forest Products:
A Company That Significantly Serves You
Why Join CFP
At Columbia Forest Products, we value each and every employee and the qualities they bring to the table. When you join our team, you’re joining a family that works together to solve problems and collaborates to make a difference in the community and the industry. We want you to grow and build a career with us — not just a job.
Our victories are ours to share. That is why our company is an ESOP, Employee Stock Ownership — this means for every year of employment, you get stock in the company.
We aim to offer significant service to our employees, our customers, our community and our natural resources. We go the extra mile to ensure proper care.
As the long-standing leader in environmental sustainability, we strive to consistently support other industries and people while taking pride in our work.
You’re never just a number to us. We strive to build relationships with all of our employees to create connections deeper than a typical 9-5 job.

There are intangibles that CFP provides in the values we live out, namely the family-centered atmosphere, giving back to our communities and employee/owners, and being a part of a company that wants you to succeed. In my mind, these things separate CFP from everyone else. At Columbia, we do more than just clock in and clock out every day. We have a chance to make a real impact each day.
