Clusko Group

As the biggest logging contractor in BC, Clusko Group has locations in Williams Lake, Clearwater and Kelowna.  It is a family-run business with Arnold Bremner and his three boys.  The brothers formed their own companies to subcontract for Clusko: Jared has Jareco Holdings in Vernon/Clearwater, while Troy formed Troyco Enterprises in Williams Lake and Ryan moved to Kelowna with Northface Ventures.
Today, the Clusko inventory totals 163 pieces of equipment, while Clusko’s road builders and dozers are Caterpillar, the Deere inventory includes 18 processors, 11 feller bunchers, 10 forwarders, six skidders, eight knuckleboom loaders, one grader, six excavators, two skid steers, two wheel loaders and a backhoe. Clusko owns 40 trucks and subcontracts 10. With this `Red Army’, as the fleet is referred to, they “shoot for 60 runs daily” (for the record, the most loads the company hauled in a single day was 140) with timber going to Canfor and Tolko.
Company Highlights:
“My dad has a saying: `A clean show is a good show,’ and he drummed this into all of us,” says Jared. “On one level it applies to his passion for keeping our fleet spanking clean – he’s a real bug for washing equipment and keeping everything tidy. But on a deeper level, it means keeping a clean operation: finding and retaining the best people, which we’ve done; treating them and our clients fairly and openly; and bringing the best possible wood without any defects to the mills.” For a company that runs double shifts on most of the machines, treating crews fairly and openly means (in addition to safe working procedures and good wages) an emphasis on weekends off. “It may sound trivial, but family is huge for all of us, and it’s imperative our crews stay actively involved in their personal lives,” says Jared. “They return to work with their batteries fully recharged every Monday, ready to put in a productive work week.”
