Our History

Watford Roof Truss commenced operations in 1972 in Watford, Ontario.

Since that time, our company has been building quality roof trusses for the residential, agricultural and commercial industries.

In 1978, Watford Roof Truss began exporting into the Michigan market, and by 2000 half of our company’s sales were devoted to this market.

In the spring of 1985, our company’s manufacturing facility was completely destroyed by fire, but returned to production within a six week period. Later that year, a brand new plant was built.

In 1998, in an effort to keep up with growing sales in the United States and Canada, we undertook extensive capital expansion increasing plant size, and adding new production lines incorporating the latest technology.

Since 2002, our plant has continued to modernize and upgrade plant machinery and software.

Today, our company is focused on building market share in Ontario (Windsor to Toronto). Watford Roof Truss is one of the leading manufacturers of wooden roof trusses for the residential, agricultural and commercial markets in Southwestern Ontario. As the largest manufacturer in Watford Ontario, we have been an important employer for the Counties of Lambton and Middlesex for over 40 years.
