Nicola Post & Rail

About Us

Locally Owned & Operated

Nestled in the beautiful Nicola Valley of British Columbia, Nicola Post & Rail is locally owned and operated by the Bertoia family since 1998.

Beginning with production of fence posts for local farms and ranches, NP&R’s quality products and efficient process lead to rapid growth in the industry. NP&R soon became recognized as a leading producer of round wood fencing products in the interior of British Columbia. Today NP&R supplies product to a handful of wholesale dealers in North America and is supported by a 40 acre production mill employing over 28 employees.

“Our commitment to sustainable forest practices has always been the core value of our business. Through our “waste not” production process, virtually every fibre of our value-added timber products is utilized. We take pride in our partnership with logging professionals, forestry agencies, and conservation groups to preserve the health and longevity of BC’s forests.”
