Apollo Forest Products has been in operation in Fort St. James since 1969. The company began operations with a contract to provide railway ties to BC Rail.

Through good management and sound forestry practices, Apollo has secured a considerable allotment of timber licenses and has a current Allowable Annual Cut of 216,746 m3. It is located 10 km northeast of the town of Fort St. James along the Tachie Highway. Apollo also manages the forestry operations of Sinclair's other companies active within the Fort St. James Forest District: Winton Global and L&M Lumber.

Apollo also has a partnership agreement with the Nak'azdli First Nation in Tl'oh Forest Products Ltd.: a joint venture valued-added processing facility producing high-quality finger-joint stud lumber. The forest license for Ta Da Chun Timber is connected to this facility. Although Apollo provides various levels of support to the community of Fort St. James, we believe that our biggest contribution to the economic well being of the community is through the maintenance of employment. Therefore, we strive to run an efficient and prosperous operation in the woods, the office, and in our milling facilities. We have positioned ourselves to remain viable, provide local employment, and build for the future in an industry that has been plagued with economic highs and lows.
