Business of the Year, V. McMillan Holdings Ltd.

BusinessV. McMillan Holdings Ltd. is a family-owned Forest Products Trucking company and has been in operation since 1977. The business is jointly owned by son David McMillan and his mother, Vernetta McMillan, who originally founded the company with her late husband. When first established, the company primarily worked as a sub-contractor for other forestry companies in the North Okanagan. Over the years the business increased capacity and acquired enough business independently to eventually own up to 7 logging trucks, 2 gravel trucks, and a log loader. V. McMillan Holdings Ltd. received support from ANTCO in 2020 for the expansion of their business to purchase a Kenworth logging truck and a triaxle trailer with log rigging installed.
