Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited has now completed fabricating a new 14,000 square foot facility that is located in the Broxburn Business Park. Conveniently located approximately 3 kilometers from the city of Lethbridge and in close proximity to both major livestock auctions, the Broxburn Business Park features a wide range of agri-business. We are enthusiastic about the opportunity of increasing our customer base and growing our business in this exciting new environment.

The company owned property at 918-1st Avenue South in Lethbridge has been sold and the sale proceeds have been applied to our new building project. The new facility is situated on a 1.5 acre lot and is comprised of office, retail and warehouse space. An expanded agricultural product line is planned and will be prominently displayed in a large, attractive and modern retail store. Improvements in the wool warehouse have also been taken into consideration to allow for more efficient wool handling.  

We extend a warm welcome to all of our clientele and look forward to meeting new customers as well. A grand opening celebration will take place later this year.

For more information please call our Lethbridge branch on our toll free number 1-800-567-3693 or email ccwglb@wool.ca.

Wool Handling Demonstration

On April 21, 2017 approximately 30 members of the wool trade representing wool depot operators, wool growers, shearers, spinners, weavers and CCWG staff participated in a very successful wool handling demonstration at CCWG wool grading warehouse in Carleton Place, Ontario.

The event also included a tour of the wool grading facility, CCWG Livestock Supplies store and the Real Wool Shop.

"I just wanted to thank-you for hosting the Wool Handling Seminar today. It was interesting to see what happens to wool after it's harvested from the sheep and hearing how to increase our return on wool. For all the times I've been there, it was my first time seeing the sorting process and touring the facility."
Thanks,
Tyler Armstrong
