Meet The Team
After researching old city archives and logging records, Gord was able to carefully map out major logging routes enabling him to locate the most fruitful log recovery locations. To this day, the majority of Logs End’s recovery are personally mapped out, located and recovered by Gord himself. As he grew to be a successful electrician and entrepreneur Gord felt an increasing need to give back to his home community. Gord wanted to give back by starting up business in this area to create jobs and employ local workers. It was from this initiative that Logs End was born into a specialty hardwood flooring manufacturer.
Gord purchased old mining land in Bristol Quebec where the Logs End mill is located today, and started up a flooring plant to mill and manufacture custom, wide plank hardwood flooring from his river recovered treasures. Officially founded in 1997, Logs End Inc. remained a small business passion project until Gord sold his electrical business and focused on growing Logs End into what it is today. Gord remains highly involved in Logs End, spending the majority of his time at the mill, doing log recovery in the summer months, visiting the Showroom and running around on various company errands. Not your typical company President, Gord’s hands-on passion, optimism and enthusiasm bring inspiration and life to the company and its initiatives.
“I was not ready to be idle. I wanted to follow my passion of being a representative of the history and heritage of the Ottawa Valley. Working with Logs End fulfills that dream! AND gives me more time with my family – 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws and 6 grandchildren. “I see the world through Irish eyes, and they are smiling.”
