At Besa, we’re driven by this purpose:
to imagine and create better ways of living.
As people spend more time indoors, we recognize that our work isn’t just about building better windows and doors—it’s about opening new possibilities for how people live, work, think and feel inside a Besa space.
Since the day we opened our doors as a family-owned and -operated cedar and lumber company, we’ve looked for ways to help people live better. We continue to evolve by raising the bar, building quality, beauty and simplicity into people’s everyday lives.
We are BESA, and this is our story — thank you for being part of it.
DESIGN FOR PEOPLE
We design for how people live and work, imagining new ways to help them feel healthier and happier in the spaces where they live, work and play.
A natural connection
Warm sunlight, fresh air and a connection to the natural world can instantly change the mood of a home or office. We design our products to make that connection feel seamless—even in the most challenging of spaces.
Rather than meeting expectations, we push ourselves to elevate the standard for excellence. Whether we’re replicating historic millwork, engineering uninterrupted views or improving energy performance, we look for what we can do better — and then we design it.
An open future
We are driven by a spirit of possibility. As needs change and people seek ways to improve their spaces, we must also evolve to meet these needs in new and unexpected ways. For every innovation, we continue to measure our success against how well we help people live happier and healthier lives.
We put people first — not just in how we design, but in how we build for the future. We commit to long-lasting and trusting relationships with our employees, customers, partners and communities, and are there for them when they need us most.
Committed to sustainability
We’re used to taking the long-term view, and we recognize that a serious commitment to sustainable operations is just good business. We are committed to sustainable business practices, both for the environment and for the communities in which we operate.
At Besa, sustainability goes beyond “green” business practices, including implementing environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and building sustainable communities across Canada, where Besa products are manufactured.
Responding in challenging times
In early 2020, COVID-19 changed the way the world thought about safety and disease spread. Safety for our team members, partners and communities was and continues to be our top priority.
