Twin Maple Construction- Established 1985
Henry Falk, a Dutch Mennonite, immigrated from Siberia to Canada in the early 1900’s, and began working as a construction contractor and farmer.Rooted in the local farming community, he built homes, barns, and eventually set up South Poplar Lumber Yard in South Abbotsford, in the very location the company’s head office exists today.
As Henry’s family came of age, they joined the family business operating under the name H.H. Falk & Sons Ltd., and continuing on the tradition of farming and building construction. In the early 1970’s, two of the brothers, Abe and John, branched out and formed Falk Brothers Industries Ltd., building all types of structures throughout British Columbia and Alberta.
Ken Falk (son of Abe) and brother-in-law Ron Born (married into the family and the business at the age of 20) took over as the family’s third generation of builders in Canada. Ken and Ron founding ‘Cousin Construction Corporation,’ which would ultimately join the Twin Maple Group of Companies and be renamed ‘Twin Maple Construction.’ In the decades to come, Ron and Ken followed the family tradition of serving the rural Fraser Valley community. While initially focusing on agricultural buildings, the portfolio of the company expanded with the successful completion of many projects within the commercial and residential building industry.
Through this culmination of intergenerational experience, Twin Maple Construction has left, and continues to leave, a mark on both the economic and social narratives of the Fraser Valley.
