Who we are
A family business since 1954
Sandy was born in Ottawa and raised with a European set of values by hard working parents. Sandy met Phil Ito in 1999 and together raised her family of two sons (one, Rob, who works alongside her at Lanark Cedar, and another who is in the accounting profession in Toronto and provides his expertise to the company). She is now the proud grandmother of 5. In 2002, Sandy and Phil purchased Lanark Cedar and have been in the lumber business since. Sandy’s mission is to provide customers with a high quality product along with unsurpassed service.
Passionate in all things outdoors from skiing, hiking, camping, boating and canoeing, Rob has a strong commitment to environmentalism. As a proud father of two he takes pride in working in the family business. Rob appreciates the constant need to learn new things from building and construction, to marketing and sales as an owner of a small business.

“First, I want to say how pleased I am with the new fence installed a few weeks ago by Lanark Cedar. The installers were professional and personable, and showed great skill in the installation. I am especially happy with how exact they were with the placement of the fence along my property line. I appreciate the time and effort you and they put into that, which was so important to me. The cedar fence itself — the wood and the design — looks smashing.”
“The cedar has been delivered. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I have been with the service I have received from all of you at Lanark Cedar. I will definitely recommend Lanark Cedar to others.”
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the outstanding work completed in the creation and installation of our fence enclosure. The attention to detail and level of quality combined with the natural beauty of the white cedar used in the project has resulted in a finished product that is simply stunning. I would also like to mention that the team at Lanark Cedar were friendly, courteous and knowledgeable from start to finish throughout this project, keeping on schedule and within budget at all times.”
