Contents of article: Richard Dettbarn wasn't about to interrupt his retirement without a very good reason. The Calgary based entrepreneur sold his I-Joist manufacturing operation in 2008. Unfortunately, this was just prior to the economic crisis and the company went bankrupt under the new owners.
A group of former employees approached Richard in January of 2010 to begin making I-joists again. The fact that there was only one producer of I-joists in Western Canada wasn't enough for Dettbarn. "After 25 years in the business, doing the same thing again seemed like going backwards. Richard says.

"We started talking about what 'superior' could mean," Dettbarn explains, "looking at the issues that come up before, during, and after construction, and we identified two big factors - moisture and fire.

Dettbarn already owned a company that produced acrylic coatings with moisture protection.

Richard wanted the new company to give back to the community and what better cause than to fight breast cancer. Richard got in touch with the Breast Cancer Foundation, who were delighted with the idea and Pinkwood was born. Pinkwood would definitely get attention.

Dettbarn quickly realized that coating other building materials in addition to the I-Joists, would add even greater protection and could raise more money for the cause.

"After 25 years in the business, doing the same thing again seemed like going backwards. Richard says. "So I made them a conditional offer: If we can produce a superior product in Alberta that can sell for the same price as joists shipped in from Eastern Canada and the United States, I'm in."
