About Us

This website displays the most comprehensive collection of outdoor site furnishings available from any single manufacturer.
 
Almost four decades ago site-related products bearing the TimberForm trade name were introduced to the design community. These original benches were made of large Douglas fir timbers. Columbia Cascade Company, makers of TimberForm, has expanded the product selection yearly until now it encompasses hundreds of different wood, metal and recycled plastic products for use on the site. In addition the company also produces a complete line of color-matched bicycle parking solutions, creative playground equipment and outdoor fitness systems.
 
From our headquarters at Portland, Oregon, Columbia Cascade has been committed to producing strong and beautiful eco-friendly site furniture since its inception. All of our products and finishes are made from non-toxic materials and our factory and offices are operated and maintained in an environmentally responsible manner.
• All of our metal components are coated with CASPAX-7, a lead-free powder coating.
• The steel and cast iron used in our products contains 80-100% post-consumer recycled metal.
• The wood used in our products is obtained from sources that adhere to strict and ecologically sound sustained yield practices.
• Many of our site furnishing products can help in achieving LEED® credits for your project.
 
Our Manufacturing Plant
• Our production facility employs strict environmental management practices.
• The lead-free CASPAX-7 powder-coating process emits no volatile solvents (0% V.O.C.) to the atmosphere and is ecologically sound.
• There are no factory emissions of any kind.
• Using energy efficient fluorescent lamps, factory lighting is motion controlled and task oriented.
• Factory storm water is diverted to on-site engineered bio-swales rather than to a stream or public sewer system.
• All production scrap (metal, wood and plastic) is recycled.
• Wooden shipping pallets are salvaged, restored and reused.
• All new cardboard packaging is produced only from recycled paper products.
 
Our Design Headquarters and Offices
• Our headquarters location was selected for easy access to the expanded light-rail line in the geographical center of Portland, Oregon. We encourage our employees to commute to work via mass-transit or alternative transportation.
• The company provides on-site bicycle racks and monthly transit passes for employees. On-site showers and changing rooms are available to cyclists.
• To conserve energy and natural resources, we discontinued the industry practice of mass-mailings of paper catalogs over ten years ago. Although we still print a limited number of catalogs for hand distribution, we encourage the online downloading of PDF copies.
• All paper, plastic and metal waste is segregated and recycled. Obsolete computer equipment is delivered to authorized recyclers.
