Our History

To understand who we are, you need to dial back the clock…

It all began with four men – all of whom had frustrations working for “the man”. With each of them bringing varying experience to the table, they decided to start a company of their own. Gene Roy left his job in finance and brought along with him the money and the financial knowledge. Errol Wintermute was a manager at the MacMillan Bloedel Shook Mill and had always dreamed of beginning a mill of his own. Wallace Wilkinson was a red cedar salesman who understood how to wheel and deal in selling the goods. And lastly, John Dyck, a rough and tumbler farm boy who understood all the equipment – whether a pitchfork or a planing mill – he knew how to get his hands dirty. These four men combined their expertise in the launch of Delta Cedar, and their 4 distinct skill-sets and perspectives have guided the direction of how we’ve grown our business. You can still see each of their influences in our business today.

Originally partnering with BC Cross Arms, who manufactured the timber telephone poles and cross arms that are outside your window today, the business began. In 1974 the retail yard opened in River Road in Delta and for 44 years we were the largest cedar specialty store in the Greater Vancouver offering the widest selection of fencing, decking, siding, and related products.

As demand grew, so did our services. In the 1980’s we began to offer construction services for fencing, custom decks, and backyard structures to residential and commercial customers. We are now the largest and best known fencing installation company in the Lower Mainland. Moving into a new town-home?  There is a good chance all of the fencing, trellis, and gates were supplied and installed by the professional team at Sunbury.

As our installation side of the business grew for over 35 years, in October 2018 we made the decision to fully commit to being a construction company and exited the retail material supply market.

Our history has and will always be a strong influence in who we are today and who we will be in years to come.
