Founded in 1903, Pacific Lumber Inspection Bureau (PLIB) is a non-profit, accredited lumber and wood products inspection and certification agency. PLIB provides lumber-grading and grade-stamping services to the lumber industry along with a wide range of other inspection and certification services for related wood-products manufacturers including Heat Treatment, Wood Packaging, CE Marking, WUI, Glulam, Cross-Laminated Timber, and Wood Trusses.
In January 2019, PLIB merged operations with the West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau (WCLIB) and with it, the American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC), retaining both the WCLIB and AITC trademarks. With the merger, PLIB added Glulam and Cross-Laminated Timber quality-control certification to its list of signature services and expanded coverage into the southern United States and Europe.
Headquartered in Federal Way, Washington, with offices in Canada and Europe, PLIB operates throughout much of North America as well as the wood producing regions of Europe. Call us at 253.835.3344 (U.S.) or 604.732.1782 (Canada) or contact us via email to learn more about what PLIB can do for you.
