On the Island, Fall River is always up for the challenge because we always get the job done right. We’re proud to be your harvesting and construction partner.
ABOUT FALL RIVER LOGGING
A New Challenge
Lessons learnt from the 2008 financial crisis inspired the KDL Group to broaden its horizons, develop new skill-sets, grow, and diversify. Coastal BC offered this opportunity and KDL’s reliable, safe, efficient, and professional approach to business was a welcome addition to the market on Vancouver Island.
Off to the Coast
In 2010, Fall River established its home base in Courtenay BC and began refining its coastal harvesting and road construction expertise. A critical part of our success was building a new family of high-performing, committed individuals who shared our values.
Fall River Today
Today, as part of the Meraki Family, Fall River and its sister company, Kechika Contracting, continues to grow and expand, offering its customers access to a greater number of services with the same great care. We’re still family oriented and employee focused, and we’re proud of the team we’ve built over the past decade.
Commitment to Safety
At Fall River, safety is our utmost priority. We take great care to ensure that our employees are protected, that we implement the strictest standard for safe logging and construction practices, and that the work we do within our communities is both safe and sustainable.
